FEI WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships – follow the competition live
- Written By:
With the horses arriving in Ermelo, it’s time to look ahead to this year’s much anticipated Longines FEI WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses, in the Netherlands (08 – 11 September 2022), and wish our riders the very best of luck this week.
Ermelo has once again welcomed the world’s best young dressage horses, including an exciting British contingent, who will show off their talents over the next four days. The Dutch venue is hosting the prestigious event for the first time since 2019 as, due to the Covid pandemic, the 2020 edition was cancelled and Verden in Germany hosted the Championships in 2021.
Starting from tomorrow, four days of competition will feature the top five-, six-, and seven-year-old horses from across the world as they battle it out for the 2022 titles at this flagship young horse event renowned for revealing the stars of the future. You only have to look at double World Champion Glamourdale, who won the seven-year-old crown in 2018 under Lottie Fry, to see that it truly is a steppingstone towards the top international levels.
Representing Great Britain this year are Beth Bainbridge with Blue Hors ApS’s Blue Hors Zackorado and Bart Veeze with Jan van den Heuvel’s Denton RMD, both six-year-olds, and, in the seven-year-old olds, Greg Sims with his own and Stena Hoerner’s Waverley Fellini and Sadie Smith with her own Swanmore Dantina.

Also, as part of the Dutch quota of entries, will be Lottie Fry and Van Olst Horses’ spectacular seven-year-old stallion Kjento (Negro x Jazz) - pictured above, winner of the six-year-old title in 2021. Lottie will also represent Great Britain in the CDI3* Big Tour with her Tokyo ride, Van Olst Horses’ Everdale (Lord Leatherdale x Negro).
