WELCOME TO THE 2021 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR ICELANDIC HORSES

Horses and riders from 21 countries and tens of thousands of excited spectators will be gathered in Herning from the 1st – 8th of August 2021. Come and join us!

The World Championships for Icelandic horses are an opportunity to experience the biggest stars in breeding and sports. 
Horses and riders will gather from all over the world to compete for the medals. The World Championships are held every two years. Horses and riders have to go through a demanding selection process in order to represent their country at the World Championships.

There will be horses on the tracks from morning to evening providing plenty of opportunity to watch beautiful, dancing tölt horses, lightning-fast pace horses and the carefully selected, breeding horses at the World Championships.

And the World Championships are more than horses. 
Around the competition tracks an entire festival site will offer entertainment, lectures, shopping and food vendors. There will be life in the square almost 24 hours a day!

The large covered stands are ready to receive the largest group of friends of the Icelandic horse ever.

Join the Party!
