Being active and taking part in society is the foundation of Saabs sponsorship engagements, the following are the recent engagements:

Equestrian sports

Equestrian sports are big in Sweden. About half a million Swedes are active. It is also the country's second largest youth sport. This means that by investing in equestrian sports, we have great opportunities to reach out to a wider public to tell about who we are and what we do.

The ability to be innovative and create change Saab brings with it into equestrian sports through the sponsorship concept Equestrian Innovations. With innovation as a common thread through the investment, Saab wants to be involved in developing the equestrian sport and make it rise to new heights. A number of exciting collaborative projects create new knowledge and increased innovative power, at the same time as it arouses interest in technical training among young equestrian activists and gets adults with the right commitment to apply to Saab.

Since the collaboration with the Swedish Equestrian Federation started, we have had time to participate in major competitions such as Stockholm International Horse Show and Gothenburg Horse Show. In addition to this, we have also a cooperation with a number of other partners in the equestrian sport, such as the elite rider Patrik Kittel.
