Three countries remain in the bidding for the 2018 World Equestrian Games (WEG), after Budapest (Hungary) and Wellington (USA) withdrew from the process.

The Hungarian bid was withdrawn last month to enhance the chances of Vienna in neighbouring Austria. Last week, the FEI announced that the Florida town had also dropped out of the running.

The three countries now in the frame are Rabat (Morocco), Vienna and Bromont (Canada).
