Welcome to paradise! There should be a sign saying at the entrance, because Strömsholm really is a paradise for both horses and horselovers.

When you arrive you see beautiful buildings that remind you of estates and castles, but a closer look reveals them to be stables and riding halls. And there are horses everywhere, a total of 220 four-legged friends at the centre.

Strömsholm is a modern Equestrian Centre with all the facilities you need. There are seven indoor schools, a number of outdoor arenas, a cross-country course and stables for approximately 220 horses, which encourages excellent training and competition possibilities. We can accommodate up to 200 people.

You will find a number of very able and experienced teachers. On the staff there are successful international riders with Olympic experience. The school horses are top quality Swedish warmblood, well trained for their tasks.

Strömsholm is located 20km west of Västerås and 130km west of Stockholm. Västerås has an international airport – Stockholm Vasteras (VST) – and you can reach Arlanda International Airport in approximately 1,5 hours.

COMPETITIONS

Within the grounds by the castle, situated in a beautiful setting, is the National Equestrian Arena. During June every year, Strömsholm hosts the annual, classical summer event at the arena, “Strömsholmstävlingen”.

The event dates back to the early 20th century and covers show jumping, dressage, eventing and driving by the old castle.

This is a perfect opportunity for the teachers and students from Ridskolan Strömsholm to practice their skills, and also an event none of the riders of the National team, inclucing Olympic, World and European medallists, will miss!

“Strömsholmstävlingen” is a folk festival for all visitors and usually attracts more than 10.000 visitors every year.

Apart from these events Ridskolan Strömsholm also holds a number of bigger and smaller competitions at different levels throughout the year.

    Hi I would like to find out if an English speaking student could complete a course at your facility to qualify me a riding instructor?
    I’m based in South Africa but was in the United Kingdom for 3 years to complete the Intermediate stable manager qualification. I am currently instructing and competing in South Africa in Showing, Dressage up to novice level and showjumping in the 1.10m with my 5 and 6 year old horses.
    I have also taken up showjumping Course design and completed my FEI level 1 exams last year and design up to 1.35m in my country as course designer.
    But I am preparing to go up in the design panel so I have designed a 1.40m Championship overseen by Linda Allein in America this year and will now be aiming to design at this level more regularly to promote to the FEI level 1 panel and then FEI level 2 in 2 years time.
    I am currently busy completing my BHS Assistant instructor qualification. I still need to hand in my portfolio and complete the practical test in England having finished and passed the theory part of the qualification.

    If you could advise me to where I can further my training as an instructor and which courses you could offer me or advise me to Hi I would like to find out if an English speaking student could complete a course at your facility to qualify me a riding instructor?

    But because I compete to a higher level and my students tend to be of a higher caliber I feel a need to further my education to assist them and myself to become professional and able to reach top sport and coach at the higher level.
    I am willing to attend your facility for a year or more depending on the qualification and assistance I can gain.
