Funding problems has forced the organising committee of the FEI Emirates International Endurance Open European Championships to pull the plug on the event
Britain will not host the FEI Emirates International Endurance Open European Championships, which were planned to take place at Alfred's Tower on the Stourhead Estate in early August. The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) is now looking at rescheduling the championships somewhere else.
The organising committee decided to cancel the event yesterday (Monday 9 May), after consulting with the FEI, the British Equestrian Federation and title sponsor Emirates International Endurance Racing (EIER). Had the event gone ahead it would have been the second time in the championships' history that it had been held in Britain.
