Fendt will be the official tractor supplier for the ECCO FEI World Championships Herning in Denmark and take an essential part in the preparation of the footing at the championships.
The World Championships will be held in 3 different arenas. Stutteri Ask Stadium is the main arena hosting the championships in Dressage and Jumping. Jyske Bank Boxen is a large indoor arena hosting the championship in Vaulting and an additional arena, BB Horse Arena will be built next to the Stutteri Ask Stadium to host the championships in Para-dressage.
The footing in the championship arenas, warm-up area and training arenas is the very heart of the competitions. The footing affects the overall soundness and performance of the championship horses and is therefore crucial for the event. The Organizer at Herning2022 has made an agreement to make Fendt the Official Tractor Supplier at Herning2022.
Kasper Glibstrup, Fendt Business Manager for Denmark and Sweden: “We are very proud to be part of the World Championship in Herning. For Fendt, this event is a great opportunity to represent our product range and deliver support in preparing the arenas with our tractors. We are looking forward to proving the quality of Fendt tractors live in the arenas.”
Casper Cassøe, CEO Operations at Herning2022 is very pleased to enter a cooperation with Fendt: “We are very aware of the importance of the footing at the championships. Our latest agreement with Fendt gives us the possibility to guarantee an excellent preparation of the footing in competitions arenas as well as warm-up and training areas.”
