The Showground

Linnesvollen hosts some of the most prestigious international riding competitions in Norway, and will be a perfect showground of our show with its high standard outdoor and indoor arenas. 

The show will be held at an outdoor arena, but can be moved inside in case of badly weather. 

The surface of the show ring have been altered from grass to the "Walber Supreme Surface" (a mix of Walber P19-sand, geopad and fibre material), which were highly appreciated by the handlers in 2014.

The facilities also provides us with a restaurant, "Restaurant Sancerre", which has a nice view of the show ring. The menu is mainly based on the Italian kitchen, and it will also be possible for participants who spend the night on the showground to buy breakfast.
