April 8, 2016

The FEI Bureau has stripped the UAE of the FEI World Endurace Championship.

The Bureaus have stated they believe the UAE NF is “not currently in a position to guarantee that horse welfare would be fully protected” at the Championships.

As a result, patient the Championships, will undergo a bidding process to find a replacement venue outside the UAE.

The deadline for receipt of bids is 18 May and the allocation to a new host will be made during the Bureau teleconference on 14 June.

It is expected that the Championships will now take place in September or October.
