What You Need To Know: 2022 ECCO FEI World Championships



While the World Equestrian Games—which brought together eight Fédération Equestre International world championships to one competition—no longer exist, the ECCO FEI World Championships, beginning this weekend, will host four sports: dressage, para-dressage, show jumping and vaulting. The best of the best will head to Herning, Denmark, Aug. 6-14 for the event.
