FEI champions youth events as host cities named for next four years 

13 Apr 2017

The FEI Bureau has today allocated host cities for 15 major equestrian events over the next four years. A total of seven Championships and Finals for young Jumping, Dressage and Vaulting athletes will be staged in Asia, South America and Europe.

The world’s third most populous city Beijing (CHN) will lead the way as host of the FEI Children’s International Classics Final in December this year.

“Over the next four years equestrian fans will see top international equestrian sport played out in some of the world’s biggest cities, and the allocation of the FEI Children’s International Classics Final will do a tremendous amount to promote the sport in China”, FEI President Ingmar De Vos said.

“With 540 days to go to the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, maximising opportunities for our young athletes to compete internationally is key for the growth and development of equestrian sport. Our youth are the future of our sport and we want them to be showcased on a global stage.”

The Longines FEI World Endurance Championships 2020 was allocated to San Rossore (ITA) and will run in early September. World breeding championships for young horses in Dressage and Eventing, run in conjunction with the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH), were also allocated today (see detailed list below).

“We have almost 4,500 equestrian events taking place every year across the world in eight disciplines, and we intend to capitalise by engaging our young audiences and our loyal fans through digital media platforms as we continue this growth,” concluded the FEI President.
