Herning (DEN) plays host to the FEI World Championships 2022 for the disciplines of dressage, para-dressage, jumping and vaulting. The 2022 Worlds will also be the first qualifier of the triennial for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games for the disciplines of dressage, para-dressage and jumping. The Danish city has a history of hosting FEI, running a qualifier for FEI Dressage World Cup annually, and in 2013 hosted a multi-discipline equestrian event in with the staging of the FEI European Championships for jumping, dressage and para-dressage.

“The 2022 World Championships is a critical competition for Canada as we build towards Paris 2024 for both our Olympic and Paralympic programs” said EC’s High Performance Director James Hood. “Both the dressage and para-dressage teams had qualified for Tokyo 2020 and we know that in order for the programs to continue to build they need increased competition and exposure in the European system. The worlds will be the first key test that continues on the road to Paris” says Hood.
