Press release from FEI



The third leg of the Longines League of Nations™, due to take place at St. Gallen (SUI) on Friday afternoon (31 May) has been cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. 

Following a prolonged period of heavy rain in Europe over the past few days, including on-site in St. Gallen, the decision was taken this morning, after discussions that involved the FEI, Ground Jury, organising committee, Chefs d’Equipe and athletes, to cancel the Longines League of Nations™ leg in the Swiss town. 

Todd Hinde, FEI Jumping Director, said;

“Despite extensive planning, the weather conditions made the situation extremely difficult and we very much appreciate the efforts of riders, chefs, grooms, officials and the organiser in trying to find solutions in the challenging circumstances. While this is regrettable, we believe under the circumstances this was the right decision to make.”

In terms of how this impacts the points allocated for the 2024 Series, there will be no Longines League of Nations™ points and no final standing from the St. Gallen leg. The league will continue with the next leg in Rotterdam on 21 June, and the standings for Barcelona (ESP) would be calculated based on the three qualifiers of Abu Dhabi (UAE), Ocala (USA) and Rotterdam (NED), instead of four.
