The 2020 FEI European Championships for Ponies, to have taken place in Strzegom, Poland from 15th – 19th July has been cancelled.

“The decision has been taken in consultation with the FEI and with the health of all athletes and everyone involved in mind, and of course fair play rules. We tried our best to find a new date, but it proved to be extremely difficult to plan a big sports show during the school summer holidays this year” say the organisers, who have instead come up with an innovative alternative

“We realise that for many athletes the Europeans were their last chance to compete in this age category, so instead of FEI European Championships for Ponies, we plan to organise a new event called the European Pony Masters in September or October. The event will include team and individual competitions in the three Olympic disciplines: Jumping, Eventing and Dressage”

“After all the hard work they have put in, it is desperately disappointing for Marcin Konarski and his wonderful team at Strzegom to have to cancel the FEI European Championships for Ponies, and also of course for all the young athletes that were planning their season around heading to Poland this summer” says FEI Secretary General Sabrina Ibáñez “But it is wonderful that Strzegom have come up with a creative solution, with the new European Pony Masters offering an alternative outing later in the year”
