The German venue of Luhmühlen has been allocated hosting rights to the FEI European Eventing Championships 2019.

This will be the sixth time that Luhmühlen has hosted the European Championships, having previously staged the Championships in 1975, 1979, 1987, 1999 and most recently in 2011. It also hosted the world championships in 1982. Luhmühlen was the fourth event in the world to become a four-star when it joined this elite group in 2005.

The 2019 Championships will be particularly important on the international calendar as they will be a qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Dates for the event will be announced shortly.

“Luhmühlen is a really wonderful venue and the organising team, headed by Julia Otto, has so much experience in hosting championships that we know they will provide the best possible facilities for the 2019 Europeans and will be a great follow-on from this week’s championships in Strzegom”, FEI Eventing & Olympic Director Catrin Norinder said.

“It’s an immense honour to host the next FEI European Eventing Championships and Luhmühlen team is looking forward to the challenge”, Luhmühlen event director Julia Otto said.
