About the FEI World Equestrian Games

The World Equestrian Games is the world’s largest international equestrian championship. It is organized by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI). The first FEI World Equestrian Games took place in 1990. From that time onwards it is held every four years on even-numbered years, between the Summer Olympic Games.

  • Para-dressage (individual and team dressage).

History of the World Equestrian Games

The idea of the World Equestrian Games originated in the mid-1980s. It was supported by Prince Philip, who was the President of the FEI at the time. He was called the Patriarch of equestrian sport. He had a passion for horses. So, he served as President of the FEI for 22 years. Prince Philip left a legacy of updated equestrian competition rules, as well as a great contribution to the formation of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports.
