Press release

GINA TRICOT GRAND PRIX BORÅS
2016 – from 1,10 to 1,55***

Earlier this year it was announced that Gina Tricot Grand Prix will be part of the international 3-star status 2016. It has also been decided that the show will be open to equipage and starts on Monday March 7 with classes from 1,10.

– It’s incredibly fun to give more riders the opportunity to compete at our show. Above all I believe that riders want professional events with good obstacles and an international framing even for lower levels, especially for their colts, says Helen Hagström, Show Manager.

The show will have national status Monday to Wednesday with classes from 1,10 to 1,35. Thursday to Sunday are dedicated for the international classes with a total prize sum of 1,6 million SEK and desirable FEI ranking points. Sunday is the day of the grand finale with classes up to 1,55.

– Ranking points is needed to be appealing to international riders. We’re hoping that this will attract more people and give us the chance to show our other unique values, such as a well thought trough, and well designed show with high fashionability. We like to surprise and top last year’s event – and we’re hoping to do so this year as well, says Anna Appelqvist, Show Coordinator.

GINA TRICOT GRAND PRIX BORÅS
GOES INTERNATIONAL

The incredibly popular horse jumping show Gina Tricot Grand Prix Borås will be part of the international 3-star status 2016.

Since the start in 2009, the organisers have continuously worked to raise the bar for the show, and every year they have introduced new elements to surprise and exceed expectations. The show has also hosted the Swedish Indoor Championships two years in a row. But 2016 the show changes direction and becomes an international 3-star competition.

Despite previous focus on the Swedish elite, our goal has always been to give this show a luxurious, international feel. To take the leap and aim to attract international riders feels just right, says Helen Hagström, Show Manager.

The show takes place in the beautiful arena of Borås Fältrittklubb. Many regard Gina Tricot Grand Prix as the starting point that led several Swedish shows to develop and become comparable with the setting, tracks, and prize sums that you previously had to travel to Europe to get. This has helped Swedish riders to develop on home ground, as they don’t have to invest in as many long and expensive trips to Europe.

– As usual the show takes place right before the World Cup in Gothenburg, which we hope will suit the international riders that are competing, says Anna Appelqvist, Show Coordinator.    

In March 2016 one can enjoy world-class horse jumping, show elements and festivities in great atmosphere. The definitive list of competitors will be revealed a few weeks before the show. But the entire Swedish elite has been patrons of the show since the start, so the organisers can almost guarantee that Malin Baryard, Peder Fredricson, and the rest of the Swedish National Team will be there.

Svart, brunt och guld

Vem säger att man inte kan blanda brunt med svart? Svart har länge varit dominerande när det gäller färgen på lädret på sadel, träns, stövlar m.m. Jag har dock alltid haft en förkärlek till brunt och jag gillar verkligen kombinationen brunt och svart.
