There’s been an unfortunate plot twist for endurance athletes, as it was announced yesterday that the FEI Endurance World Championship that was set to take place in Verona, Italy this October has been canceled. Everyone at EN nearly had a heart attack when we saw the words ‘FEI’, ‘Italy, and ‘canceled’ all together in a sentence, but eventers have nothing to fear — the road to Pratoni continues! — though we are majorly disappointed for our fellow equestrian athletes who have been preparing for this opportunity.

FEI Board confirmed the termination of the Host Agreement over concerns “including but not limited to track readiness, athlete safety, and the lack of detailed planning schedules in the lead up to the Championship.” A rescheduled championship will take place no later that April 30, 2023 and the bid process will be reopened.
