The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) today announced that the Organising
Committee of the European Endurance Championships, due to take place on 6
August 2005 in Stourhead House, Wiltshire (GBR) had taken the decision to
cancel the event to be held in August.
The OC commented as follows ?The level of total funds available had not
reached initial expectations, requiring the OC to take action now?. John
Hudson, a member of the Organising Committee went on to say, ?The Organising
Committee wishes to express it?s thanks to the BEF and the FEI for their
support during this difficult time for everyone, and especially wish to
thank the many Endurance GB members, friends and other volunteers who have
given up many days of time and effort to help in this venture?.
The FEI has found a potential replacement to ensure the Championship will
still take place and is in contact with the OC and the NF concerned to
finalise arrangements at this time.
Details of the rescheduled Championship will be announced shortly and all
National Federations advised accordingly.
