Horse in Sport 2019: Workshops

Workshop 1

What to do if something happens?

Accident management…acting well in accidents and in crisis situations with horses during an equestrian event

Theoretical and practical demonstration & panel discussion

Nobody wants an accident. Nevertheless - accidents happen in connection with our sports partners, the horses. It can hit us all... being involved in an accident with a horse, during an equestrian competition.

Since every crisis situation requires a cool head, it helps to deal with the situation in advance.

How do we best deal with this - who is responsible for what - how do I help in a crises situation and how can I help a horse properly without endangering me?

Equestrian competition experts – national as well as international, event organisers, athletes and horse owners ... all of us should know what to do when an accident happens!

Bring the sport to the people!

The success @ Longines FEI European Championships Gothenburg 2017 - is this the future of Equestrian events?

Driving @ Longines FEI European Championships Gothenburg, Sweden, 2017

Euro Champs Gothenburg Longinesweb“At Horse in Sport 2019, I will give you an inspiring presentation of my journey of being responsible for the Driving at this amazing event”, says Karin Mårlind Strauss, Representative of the OC ECH Gothenburg.

The Driving competition of the Longines FEI European Championships 2017 took place in the middle of the City of Gothenburg in Sweden. This urban venue made this equestrian competition so unique. It reached a new level, both for the drivers and for the audience.

The chosen location for the Dressage and Cones Driving was a built-up arena, the Heden Arena, at the heart of the city centre.

The Marathon was a spectacle in front of thousands of enthusiastic spectators.

The first section was a city street route and finally the marathon action – in 8 obstacles on the grounds of the Slottsskogen City Park.

The planning of the event was meticulous in every detail and the organization well prepared.

It was a huge project and hard work, but it turned out to be a big success in many ways - it was a milestone in the Driving sport. When will we see Driving in the city centre again?

What had been done backstage, this and much more you can find out when attending the Sport Horse Congress 2019.
