The FEI has decided: From 2025 to 2027 the FEI Dressage World Breeding Championship for Young Horses will take place in Verden again. At the beginning of August, the world's best dressage talents will compete for the world championship titles at the show grounds on Lindhooper Straße.
This means that the World Championships are returning to their "birthplace". In 1997, the pilot project took place in Verden as part of the European Dressage Championships. In the meantime, they have been the starting point of quite a few international careers. "We are very much looking forward to this great event, which will find optimal conditions on our show grounds," say the show management Wilken Treu and Ulrike Kubelke from pVerd-event GmbH. The two-year preparation period is already beginning and the anticipation is great. In the past years, the numerous expert spectators from all over the world made the title competitions for five- to seven-year-olds a real highlight.
The last time the FEI Dressage World Breeding Championship for Young Horsestook place in Verden was in 2021. At that time, with a limited number of spectators, the newly built show grounds at the racecourse also shone at its international debut. Before 2025, the World Championships will be held twice more in Ermelo/NED.
