Christmas Special: WM day passes

Originally, we had planned to only begin offering day passes to WM 2019 early in the new year. After receiving so many requests asking for this particular option, however, and after an enormous success in booking numbers of week and weekend passes by guests from more than a dozen countries already, we have now decided to open up the day-pass booking option for a limited early-bird period.

After all, it will be Christmas soon and we would love to help all friends of the Icelandic horse to get their wishes fulfilled. It is until 24 December now that special zones of the WM arena have been opened up for day-pass booking. Here’s another amazing Christmas deal: „Saturday Premium“ incl. a day pass for all competition action that day plus a greatly discounted ticket for the evening’s „More Horsepower“ gala show.

Unique spectacle: "More Horsepower" on 10 August  

When the gong sounds for the great „More Horsepower“ gala to begin, the audience on Saturday during WM week can get ready for something truly outstanding. For almost three hours, guests from near and far will be treated to what is truly a world-class show program. It will be a magical composition of many different artists and horse breeds incl. the highest levels of dressage, some of the most internationally renowned stunt riders and reining professionals, there will be high-speed chariot races, a breathtaking performance of Hungarian Post and - of course - a beautiful Icelandic quadrille.

It is with great pride that we can also announce Jean François Pignon as the special guest of this program - the world-famous master and his freedom horses will be sharing a uniquely fascinating evening with us in Berlin. Throughout the show we will always build bridges from each single act to Iceland and to our horses from this great land of fire and ice. „More Horsepower“ will therefore be much more than just an addition of single performances but we would love to take you as our guests on an eventful journey through the many different facets of the fascination of horses altogether!

„More Horsepower“ will take place on 10 August, 2019, at the World Championships for Icelandic Horses at Karlshorst Equestrian Center in Berlin. Tickets are now available for pre-order HERE

Major construction progress on the WC grounds

This week a lot has happened at the World Championships grounds at the Karlshorst Equestrian Sports Park. Not only is the construction of the inclusive equestrian sports and riding therapy centre making great strides (the topping-out ceremony will take place next Thursday), but the first sod was turned at the beginning of the week for the construction of the new training track. This will be built inside the trotting track and is freely visible for the spectators from the exhibition area. It is now possible to be very close to the athletes around horse and rider outside the stadium and watch the training.

On Thursday we were also able to welcome the FEIF around Vice President Doug Smith and Sports Director Jean-Paul Balz in Berlin, who got a picture of the World Championships grounds and the construction progress. They were very satisfied with the planning status and together we were able to clarify all questions and open points.
