World Pair Driving Championships 2001 in Riesenbeck

Riesenbeck (Ger), 24 November 2000
The World Pair Driving Championships will take place from 16 to 19 August 2001 in Riesenbeck, Germany.

The Championships would originally have taken place in St. Gallen, Switzerland, but the organisation gave the organisation of the event back to the FEI a few weeks ago because of financial problems.
Riesenbeck now organises for the third time, after 1987 and 1997, the World Pair Driving Championships. In 1992 Riesenbeck hosted the World Four-in-Hand Driving Championships.
Parallel with the WC 2001, there will be an international driving event for teams of horses.
