WC para equestrian driving 2010 in Breda

The FEI has allocated the World Champiosnhips Para Equestrian Driving 2010 to the Netherlands. This was decided today during the FEI General Assembly in Copenhagen, Denmark. The organization of this prestigious event will be in thecapable hands of the international equestrian event Breda Hippique at the Prinsenhoeve Estate in Breda.

Breda Hippique successfully organized the Dutch National Para Equestrian Dressage Championships in 2009 and therefore already has a strong connection with the para equestrian sport. Reigning World Champion Jacques Poppen from the Netherlands is thrilled with the allocation: “It looked as if I was not going to be able to defend my title next year because there were no candidates. Luckily, Breda was very enthusiastic about organizing the World Championship. Breda Hippique is a wonderful event with an excellent organization. I am looking forward to defend my title next year on home soil.”
The World Championship in Breda will be fully integrated in the existing four-in-hand programme.
Breda Hippique will take place from 2 to 5 September 2010.
