COVID HALTS CHAMPIONSHIPS
THE Driving World Championship due to run in Valkenswaard this weekend (7–11 October), has been cancelled owing to an increase in Covid-19 cases in the Netherlands.
FEI secretary general Sabrina Ibáñez said it was “devastating” to have to cancel the four in-hand competition at the last minute, but “sadly the new government restrictions in the Netherlands make it impossible”.
Ms Ibáñez said all options were considered, including an alternative venue in Germany, but nothing was feasible.
