UB Horse Show 23.-26.10.2014

UB Horse Show moves to a new location downtown Helsinki

Helsinki Jäähalli is the new home for UB Horse Show.

The most northern Longines FEI World CupTM Jumping qualifier, the Helsinki International UB Horse Show in Finland, takes a big step in up-grading the event. The Helsinki Event  moves to a new venue next October when it celebrates it´s 30th year anniversary.

The organiser, BCM Scanhorse Ltd signed today a five year contract with the Jäähalli Foundation, owner of the Helsingin Jäähalli sports arena. This legendary arena is located in the beautiful historical area of sports – right beside the famous Olympic Stadium, and just some minutes from the heart of Helsinki.

- The move is a real up-grading. After 13 years in the Fair Centre and 16 years in the Hartwall Arena, it´s time to move forward, says Tom Gordin, long-time Event Director.

- Helsingin Jäähalli is famous for it´s intensive atmosphere as the tribunes are steep and close to the competition area. It can take more than 8.000 spectators, in fact more than the former venue. We are proud to offer splendid warm-up facilities, both for spectators and horse & riders. It´s a full size area with a tribune and restaurant. We count all horse-lovers will be thrilled by this. Stabling, parking and the Horse Expo are all situated right by the Jäähalli, states Gordin.
