Why aren’t all the World Championships being held at the same place this year?

Hosting all the equestrian World Championships together as the World Equestrian Games (WEG) was first trialed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1990. Since then WEG has gone ahead every four years, but a number of organising committees have found it difficult to make it financially viable to host eight equestrian world championships at the same venue. As a result, the wisdom of continuing with the WEG format has been questioned, and in 2022 the championships have been split across three venues instead.

Where are the other 2022 World Championships?

The eventing World Championships and the driving are both taking place at Pratoni del Vivaro in Italy in September 2022. The endurance World Championships are to take place at Verona, Isola della Scala, in Italy in October.
