Dressage at Hickstead will not hold its annual CDI in 2012 due to a date clash with the Olympic Games.

Organiser Dane Rawlins said the venue was unable to find a suitable date for the international and decided to postpone the event until 2013.

Hickstead will still run a number of affiliated and unaffiliated shows next summer, including the British Paralympic team final trials (18-19 June) and the Premier League show (18-21 July) which includes the British young horse championships and an invitation-only grand prix k ¼r.
