Soon it’s time to kick off this year’s Oslo Horse Show, with the leg opening of the World Cup in Show Jumping. Now in its 40th season, where the first FEI World Cup (TM) Jumping Final took place in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1979. The starting field looks to be the hottest yet, with seven of the top ten riders in the Longines Rankings.
The winner in Oslo is almost always included in the world championships-final when the series finish in Paris in April, with only one exception in the last ten years with the last year’s winner Alberto Zorzi. Hot names such as Kevin Staut, Peder Fredricson and Lorenzo de Luca are on the Master’s List.
Every season new talents appear throughout the qualifying rounds, and last year’s winner in Oslo Alberto Zorzi is proof of that. The 28-year-old was ranked at 109th in the Longines rankings at the time, but put himself firmly on the map after the leg opener in Telenor Arena. This weekend, Zorzi is coming back to Oslo.
We are proudly inviting you and your friends and family to Telenor Arena for a spectacular event in the deep urban jungle at Fornebu, Oslo.
