    ANCCE at Eurohorse - Göteborg Horse Show, Sweden

    Manuel González and Arancha Rodríguez traveled from Spain to attend the stand. Ramón Martín (Dehesa Cabeza Rubia) and Enrique Eraso (Yeguada Torrehermosa) were there as well. Date: February 25 – 28           Location: Scandinavium Arena, Göteborg
    Nº visitors: 79,954                  Nº exhibitors: 300 Eurohorse is organized in conjunction with the Gothenburg Horse Show, to include two World Cup events: show jumping and dressage. The event runs from Thursday to Sunday at the Scandinavium arena with a seating capacity for 12,000 people.

    ANCCE had a 32 square meter stand, decorated with posters of PRE horse-drawn carriages, PREs performing dressage and alta escuela, as well as running freely in the fields of Spain. There were also SICAB 2010 posters and others with the ANCCE member stud farm brands. 

    A variety of promotional materials were handed out.  Also, The PRE Horse Book was on show. Stud Book doubts and questions, both from individual breeders as well as representatives from the Swedish Association, Gunilla Astren and Jane Fredin, were answered.  Contacts were made with people interested in the PRE as a breed and in receiving further information from ANCCE.  There were interviews with the Swedish press in search of information and pictures of the PRE for a number of articles.  As a result of the contacts made in 2009, the annual Stallboken agenda, which publishes some 40.000 copies, boasts a PRE performing dressage on its cover page. 

    Moreover, ties were established with the Gothenburg Mounted Police about the possibility of selling them PRE horses for their stables.  We also met a number of dressage trainers and riders, as well as equitation workers in an effort to position the PRE at the crest of top level competitions.
