Horse Week 2012, Madrid
The first edition of the multidisciplinary equestrian event "Madrid Horse Week Banco Sabadell 2012" will take place from December 20 to 23 in Ifema.
The event includes an International Horse Show with over 100 riders of different nationalities, demonstrations of Doma Clásica, the famous horse show with headliner Santi Serra, vaulting demonstrations, horseball matches between Spain and Portugal, pony tournaments and quadrilles by the Guardia Civil and the Guardia Real.
As the main supplier for this important equestrian event, NUSSLI is taking over the provision and construction of a grandstand with 2,500 seats as well as VIP lounges for another 766 people. The spectator grandstand extends along two sides of the main square. The VIP boxes occupy the remaining two sides, creating a virtually closed grandstand. NUSSLI is also building a judges' platform as well as other infrastructure. A 25-member team will be building all the structures (a total of 200 metric tons of material) within just one week. Special mention should be made of the demanding requirements for surface treatment: Capet-like fabric has been laid in all structures in order to achieve the high level of quality appropriate to the category of event.
