TOP HORSES – TOP RIDERS – WELCOME TO BASEL
LONGINES CSI BASEL WITH WORLD-CLASS DRESSAGE FROM 2022
The five-star World Cup show jumping tournament in Basel is taking a big step towards becoming an even more important international festival for equestrian sport. Already from the next event from 12 to 16 January 2022, top-level dressage will enrich the programme. Excellent infrastructure, the enthusiastic audience and attractive prize money should attract the best dressage riders in the world to Basel. The aim is to be able to hold the dressage competitions as a World Cup qualifier just one year later.
“We are very pleased that in future we will be able to offer the Swiss dressage sport a great stage for presentation and our spectators an additional attraction with the international stars of this discipline,” says Dr. h.c. Thomas Straumann, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the LONGINES CSI BASEL. Andy Kistler, President of the Organising Committee, adds: “We will start already on Wednesday at noon. This makes it possible to present the extended programme with only one competition less for the show jumpers, while the prize money remains the same, in four and a half days. Basel will undoubtedly gain in importance in the equestrian world through the integration of dressage.”
