The 2020-edition of the FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championships for Young Horses, due to take place from 16 to 20 September in Lanaken, Belgium, have been cancelled. While the organising committee was determined to go on with this traditional event, the Belgian Security Council's decisions on July 27 forced them into cancellation. 

"Zangersheide sincerely wishes to thank all of its partners who have worked with us until the last minute to facilitate the organisation of this event, as well as the sponsors who still wanted to support us despite the difficult situation," the organisers state on their homepage. 

“The cancellation of the FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken, Belgium is very disappointing for everyone involved, and we understand that this has not been an easy decision to make, but with the uncertainty arising from the impact of Covid-19, we must continue to place utmost priority on ensuring the health and safety of our athletes, officials and all those involved during this challenging time,” Stephan Ellenbruch, Chair of the FEI Jumping Committee, says. “We will continue to support Lanaken as the host of these great championships in the years to come and thank the organising committee for the work done up to now and for their courage in making this very difficult decision in this unprecedented situation.”
