Future young talents thrive!

By on November 21, 2017

2018 is the year when the Association Runsten Equestrians together with Runsten Equestrian is even more focused on young people in the equestrian sport.

During the year, the association will organize a number of subsidized courses and clinics at Runsten Equestrian in Stockholm. During the spring, the aim is to have Runsten Equestrian Games v.24 as its goal where several classes for pony, children, junior and young rider are arranged. The investment will continue throughout the year.
The association also has teams for div 1 and elite in allsvenskan 2018.

– It’s great to be able to do this collaboration with Runsten Equestrian that have long ago had a big investment in youth in Sweden. That we can now also make a similar effort to the association’s young riders is very pleasing, with subsidized costs contributing to broad knowledge in the equestrian sport. Through the organized courses and lectures, we want to help develop the riders of the future while creating a larger Community, says chairman of the association Per Dahlgren.

“There are many young talents who come to a choice in life where they either leave the sport or go to the top. We want to inspire young people to continue developing their talent to be part of the elite in the future. With this effort, we want to encourage our riders at all levels of broad knowledge to continue up to the top and strengthen endurance that is really required when facing adversity. Runsten is fully aware that it’s just a little push we’re contributing to, but hopefully it’s probably so important”, says Christopher MacDermott, owner of Runsten Equestrian.
