Competitors´info


Welcome to the endurance race in winter wonderland in the land of Santa Claus!

Vasaritten will be taking place on the 19th January 2019. 
This event will include CEI2* 120km and CEI1* 80km international rides, 80 km and 50 km national rides.

The venue…
The race will be taking place in the small town of Rättvik in Dalarna, in the middle of Sweden. Rättvik is situated 270 km northwest of Stockholm. The competition ground is at Körhallen, Stiernhööksgymnasiet: 
Stiernhööksgymnasiet, Masvägen 15, 795 32 Rättvik, Sverige
Latitud: 60.89259 | Longitud: 15.103728

The weather…
The weather in Dalarna in January can be cold and snowy, where the nature is covered in a deep blanket of snow. The temperature could be in the range from 0 to below -20 degrees Celsius. Typically it is around -10 and a lot of snow. The snow could be over one meter deep, but the roads are cleared and salted so they will mostly be free from snow and ice. Sunrise at 9.00 pm and sunset at 15.30 am.

The car and horsetrailer…
If you are travelling to or through Sweden with a vehicle such as a passenger car or heavy truck, you need to make sure the tyres on your vehicle are right. During the winter, the following rules apply: https://www.transportstyrelsen.se/…/…/Vehicles/winter-tyres/

The tracks…
Endurance riding in Dalarna in the winter means perfect tracks for a canter! The track is mostly flat country roads. The gravel roads will be cleared and have a hard packed cover of snow. The smaller paths in the forest may have a layer of soft snow, no deeper than 10 centimeters.

The vet gate..
The vet gate is in a large indoor riding arena, with a temperature around 7 degrees Celcius. The surface in the vet gate will be perfect for trotting up. The arena has all the facilities such as toilets.

The horse…
To manage the slippery ground that can be partly covered in ice, the horse must be shod with studs in all four shoes. It's a good idea to also put on snow soles that prevent snow from getting packed in to the hooves.
Grooming in cold weather will be different. The necessity for cooling will obviously not be the same as in a hot and humid climate. Any cooling with water, if at all necessary, will have to take place oudoors. N.B. It will not be allowed to pu water on the ground inside the indoor arena as it will be detrimental for the arena surface!

The rider…
Dress for cold weather, layer on layer. Wool clothing keeps you warm even when hot and sweaty. A change into dry, warm clothes can be the savior of the day. Bring a warm jacket for the rest periods. Wool socks. Good boots and winter gloves. A fleece or wool scarf to protect the face feels nice. Clothes for cross country skiing usually works well even for riding.

The crew…
It can be cold to stand still and wait at the pit stops, so put on your warmest clothes and have a thermos of warm drinks available.

The stabling..
Stables will be available at the nearby racecourse Rättviks Travbana,1 km away from the competition ground. Hay will be available. Please book in advance. More information will be published in the schedule.

Hay will be avalible only with pre booking. 

The accommodation…
