Helgstrand Event is an exceptional showground in the North of Denmark hosting unique and engaging equestrian events - we call them Equitour. Both national and international, jumping and dressage shows are organized by Equitour.
Not only the world’s best dressage and jumping riders travel to Northern Denmark to compete at the fantastic facilities of Helgstrand Event and Equitour. Ambitious amateurs and upcoming young riders are also welcomed to enjoy competing the same quality environment.
In the summer of 2017 the first event at the showground found place. The show named Equitour also known as the CSI/CDI Uggerhalne was a great success from the start. The world elite in jumping and dressage travelled to Nord Jutland competing at Equitour. Alongside the sports activities, normally different activity areas have been designed on the showground for the families attending. These areas among others included a children’s fairground, a food market and a great exhibition area. In addition, several other events took place during the five days of Equitour. Amongst many highlights; the shows included a big car event, a car auction as well as the Nordic International Sales foal auction, concerts and a family and kids day.
In 2022 Helgstrand Event became the brand of all events at Helgstrand, and Equitour will remain as the equestrian mark for the national and international equestrian shows at the venue. Helgstrand Event and Equitour will extend the use of the showground, increasing focus on hosting national and international competitions in jumping and dressage, but also focusing on events outside the equestrian sport.
