The FEI has today announced that the 2021 European Championships in jumping have been allocated to Riesenbeck International in Germany – the home-base of 1992 Olympic Champion Ludger Beerbaum – pending final confirmation from the organiser. The championships will be listed in the FEI calendar for 30 August to 4 September 2021. Allocation of the European Championships in dressage was confirmed to Hagen, Germany. 

Following the postponement of this year’s Tokyo Games to 2021, the FEI Board decided that the European Championships in the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines should not be held next year to allow the focus to be on Tokyo. However, several stakeholders including the EEF urged the FEI Board to review its decision – resulting in yesterday’s resolution.

“We are very happy to have great venues at Riesenbeck and Hagen available to host the European Championships in Jumping and Dressage next year and we look forward to receiving the final confirmation from the two Organisers for these Championships to go ahead,” FEI President Ingmar De Vos said. “These Championships have really been a great example of the FEI, EEF, the German National Federation, the two Organisers and everyone else involved working together to accommodate the wishes of the European National Federations and the Athletes’ community to have these Championships next year. I am particularly grateful for the valuable work done by the FEI Technical Committees and Calendar Task Forces.”
