World Equestrian Games 2022

The venue for the FEI World Equestrian Games 2022 is still to be decided after the two venues in line to host the major championship both pulled out.

The Kentucky Horse Park in the United States and Samorin in Slovakia both expressed initial interest in holding the event. However Kentucky dropped out in January 2017 due to financial concerns. Then at the FEI General Assembly in Montevideo, Uruguay in November 2017 it was announced that the bidding process was to be reopened after Slovakia withdraw its bid for the competition.

The new venue for the FEI World Equestrian Games 2022 is due to be announced in November 2018 at the in-person FEI Bureau meeting.

The World Equestrian Games (WEG) were first held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1990. The games take place every four years. Unfortunately a number of organising committees have found it difficult to make hosting the world championships of eight equestrian disciplines at the same venue a financial success. Many have questioned the wisdom of continuing with the WEG format as it currently stands, but the FEI appears confident in the event’s future.
