The FEI Bureau have announced Hartpury as the hosts of the 2020 FEI Dressage European Championships for Young Riders and Juniors.

Hartpury hosted a European Championships in 1997 when they had the Pony disciplines of dressage, showjumping and eventing and again in 2000 for Young Riders. The venue also hosts a CDI, CCI and CIC annually.

The championships are likely to take place at the end of July to early August.

Hartpury Equine Director Phillip Cheetham said: “We love horses at Hartpury and we’re extremely proud to have been named as host for these two major championships in 2020 – it’s a massive coup. 

“It’s a real tribute to the world-class facilities that we have at Hartpury and the wealth of experience our team has in successfully staging top equine events, such as the NAF International Hartpury Horse Trials in August.

“We’re extremely excited about welcoming the best young riders in Europe to Hartpury in 2020 and providing the environment in which they’re able to produce their very best.”
