Why can’t the world’s top riders and drivers do the same as hockey players and footballers? That's the question that opens today's statement from the Geneva International Horse Show, as the organisers have announced the 60th edition of their showjumping, driving and cross-country competitions from 10th to 13th December 2020 that will go ahead with a comprehensive range of stringent health security measures. The organisers also state that they are well aware that epidemiological situation can change at any time.

"We’ve studied all the options and we’ve concluded that the CHI Geneva event can be held against a backdrop of strict appropriate health measures that will enable us to ensure the safety of everyone," specifies Sophie Mottu Morel, CHI Geneva Show Director in the statement. "We’re well aware that the health situation could change before December and this could force us to make other decisions in the next few weeks, but we’re doing everything in our power to enable the staging of CHI Geneva 2020. We’re determined to put on a 60th event that showcases the sport at the highest level. It will appeal to spectators, competitors and sponsors alike."

There will be many highlights, notably the 20th Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final on the Friday evening and the Rolex Grand Prix, one of the four legs of the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping, on the Sunday. The competition launched last year for talented under-25 riders will be held again, as will the renowned Indoor Cross-country presented by Tribune de Genève, and the FEI Driving World Cup presented by RTS.

"The organising committee would like to warmly thank their partners, who have provided solid support throughout these last months and who are fully behind today’s decision," the statement closes off.
