The FEI Board has named the qualifiers for the 2022/2023 season of the FEI Driving World Cup™ and the FEI Eventing Nations Cup™ Series during its teleconference meeting this week. The FEI postponed the allocation of the qualifiers of the FEI Dressage World Cup™ 2022/23 to its next teleconference on 20 January 2022.

The Board had previously confirmed that the FEI Driving World Cup™ Final 2023 will be held in Bordeaux (FRA) from 2 to 5 February 2023.

The Board confirmed the locations and dates for the FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Youth 2022 and the FEI Jumping Ponies’ Trophy 2022.

Three Championships were added to the 2022 calendar. The FEI World Championships for Young Horses will be held from 25 to 28 August in Szilvásvárad (HUN), and the FEI Jumping European Championship for Veterans in Darmstadt (GER) from 8 to 11 September. The FEI Jumping South American Championships for Young Riders, Juniors, Pre-Juniors and Children 2022 will be organised in Buenos Aires (ARG) from 17 to 23 October.

“The FEI Series and Championships are important to the growth and development of equestrian sport and it is encouraging to see a full calendar for next year,” FEI Secretary General Sabrina Ibáñez said.  

“It is particularly encouraging to see our Youth Jumping series go from strength to strength. We know that these series play such an important role in the development of our young Jumping athletes and give them invaluable exposure to the environment of top shows.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the FEI Event organisers, who, despite the cancellations and grave losses suffered in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic, have shown great resilience and determination to continue hosting FEI events.”
