From 21 to 27 of August 2017, Gothenburg is proud to be hosting the Longines FEI European Championships Gothenburg 2017. There are four disciplines represented; Jumping, Dressage, Driving and Para-Eqestrian Dressage.
During seven exciting and eventful days, the Championships will transform the entire city into an arena packed with competitions and events at the Ullevi Stadium, Heden Arena and

The FEI European Championships are held every two years. Over 300 of Europe’s top riders and drivers will meet in Gothenburg to compete for the medals.
Competitors from around 30 countries, 590 horses and 1000 volunteers will be involved in the event.
What’s even more exciting?

Nothing’s more cosy than sleeping in new fresh bedding. So we were very trilled to see the new equestrian inspired collection by Swedish designer Sofia Öberg: EquiHomeSweden.
EquihomeSweden is a swedish home interior brand that designs and develops high-quality home textiles, inspired by the equestrian sport. The company was founded back in 2015 by Sofia Öberg. The equestrian sport has always been a big part of her life together with her interest of home interiors and textiles. As since a few years the equestrian industry has transformed a lot and focusses more on fashion. Sofie thought this change is something that she really welcomed and her new collection was a step in this market transformation, to combine the equestrian industry with the interior design.
Fine equestrian textiles like saddle pads and blankets combined with the typical Scandinavian interior style inspired her to create this new bedding collection. The colors and materials are carefully picked and all the products are made from premium quality cotton. With the unique corner design the bedspreads cover the bed nicely, so say bye bye to fabric all over the floor.
“I have really put my heart and soul in this collection and there is a reason why it took me two years to develop it. For me quality is important, that is why the fabric is made from only the best cotton. My earlier career as a quality engineer have really helped me in my search for finding the best materials available. The supplier is carefully picked and I have a close relation with the workforce that I also frequently visit” said Sofie.
EquiHomeSweden recently launched a webshop and founder Sofie is really excited about extending the brand in the future.
When you buy a bedspread or a bedspread set, a nice navy bag is included where you can store things or why not use it to pack things in for the upcoming competition?
