The Swedish Warmblood Equestrian Weeks are an annual event that showcases all three Olympic disciplines – showjumping, dressage, and eventing – as well as a spectacular variety of age-group classes presenting the best examples of worldclass SWB breeding.
The round-up of winning horses during SWB Equestrian Weeks will appear according to their particular class of discipline, starting with the three-year-old championship.
This overall title, presented by Hyperion Stud, was won by Calleo (SWB) (2019: Nintender - Capriole (SWB) x Cardento), bred, owned and handled by Jessica Havdell, who scored a total of 17.5 points.
The SWB three-year old Mare Championships presented by Agria found its champion in Miss Clarima MagiQ (SWB)(Clarimo - Miss Jacson x Aloube Z) for breeders Alexandra Gran, Rebecca Giegold and Niclas Magnusson, owner Vhita Gård, with handler Johanna Wall, scoring 16 points.
The mare No Doubt (34)(SWB) was victorious in the four-year old Breeders Trophy final presented by Hööks. By Ike, out of Linnea Linnea (34) (SWB), by Cardento, No Doubt was bred by Emelie Andersson and Olivia Lindberg, is owned by Farman Zetterman AB, and was ridden by Viktor Edvinsson for 33.1 points.
Test rider Henrik von Eckermann gave the mare Pacific (SWB) (Kannan - Panthalassa (SWB) x Cardento) plenty of praise and a solid evaluation, awarding 8.5 for both rideability and jumping during the ridden test. The mare scored a total of 32.8 for victory in the five-year-old age-group in the Breeders Trophy presented by Friska Leder. The mare was bred and is owned by Fredrik Linell, and was ridden by Lina Linell.
