Falsterbo Horse Show, also known as Horse Week, as many of the locals call these delightful summer days in the middle of July, is an important competition for Swedish and International equestrianism. These days are a festival for ponies and horses as well as for the stream of visitors who come to be a part of the event.
Equestrian competition in Falsterbo has a long history. The traditions underlying the modern competition began in the 1920s. Then the competition was for the military cavalry, to give them the chance to show their skills on horseback. The competition took place in various parts of Falsterbo and eventually moved to Skanör Heath, a stone’s throw from where Falsterbo Horse Show established itself in 1965 and continues to this day.
