The FEI World Endurance Championships comes to the UK next year.

The event will take place at Euston Park, near Newmarket, and the provisional date is 25 August.

Endurance GB (EGB) said it will be a “huge boost” to Britain’s riders, especially in the year Britain stages the Olympics.

“We are delighted to be the host for this prestigious event, when the focus of the country will be so firmly fixed on sport in general,” said Jo Claridge, chairman of EGB.

“We look forward to being able to compete against the best endurance riders in the world on our own turf.”
