With the addition of the CCI5*-L at Fair Hill International beginning in 2020 and with considerable interest from organizers in exploring options for other dates and venues for CCI4*-L in both the spring and the autumn, the US Equestrian Eventing Sport Committee has unanimously decided to issue a Request for Expressions of Interest/Bid Applications from organizers.
Additionally, with the withdrawal of the Great Meadow application to run a FEI Eventing Nations Cup (CCIO4*-S), the Eventing Sport Committee is seeking to determine if there are organizers interested in submitting an application to the FEI to add Nations Cup to the US Eventing Calendar.
Please pay close attention to the fact that you must submit three dates in ranked order preference as well as indicate any blackout date(s) which are within two weeks prior to or following each of the dates you have submitted, including the reason a competition would be unable to run on the date(s) indicated. You are also encouraged to submit letters of support from members of your community and/or athletes who would support the concept of either of these levels at the specific venue.
The applications are located in your competition management dashboard accessed through your competition ID. Please complete the information in its entirety and return it to the Eventing Department by no later than close of business March 15, 2019.
The timeline will be as follows:

The world number one Oliver Townend has put Great Britain in gold medal position after the first of three sessions of dressage at the Tokyo Olympics.
Second into the arena, Townend delivered an extremely accurate performance and did not waste a mark on the flea-bitten grey 14-year-old Ballaghmor Class to score 23.6 - the fifth-best mark by a British rider at an Olympics, according to EquiRatings.
It’s the turn of the world’s best eventing athletes to stand under the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games spotlight over the next few days as all but one of the horses presented at this morning’s horse inspection at Baji Koen Equestrian Park were confirmed for action by the Ground Jury.
