The Swedish Equestrian Federation has announced the horses that will represent Sweden at the 2019 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo, the Netherlands, on 1 - 4 August 2019. 

Following the final selection trial at the CDIO Falsterbo, the Swedish selectors were able to make their pick of horses.
