Competition Information

The FEI Eventing Nations Cup the Netherlands will take place at the Military Boekelo-Enschede. Dressage will begin on Thursday, October 10, followed by the cross-country and show jumping phases, set to take place on Saturday, October 12, and Sunday, October 13, respectively.

The competition also serves as a test event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The competition rules are based on the Tokyo 2020 eventing competition format with teams of three plus one reserve.

Under the new Olympic team format, the traveling reserve is still a very critical fourth member of the team. The way Boekelo is testing the format will differ from the Olympics, as the reserve for Tokyo 2020 will only step in should one of the three team horses be unable to continue on to the next phase (due to elimination, unsoundness, etc). For Boekelo, the traveling reserve will compete in all phases, and their score can be substituted in as a counting score should one of the three team members be unable to continue (due to elimination, unsoundness, etc.)

Full FEI Regulations for Equestrian Events at the Olympic Games are available here.
