The 2020 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden have been officially rescheduled as an indoor event on 9 - 13 December 2020. The 2020 edition of the World Championships had returned to Verden after four years of being hosted in Ermelo, The Netherlands. The original show dates were 5 - 9 August 2020.
The dates of 9 - 13 December 2020 were put forward for approval to the FEI Dressage Calendar Task Force by the German FN already on 8 April 2020, but they initially were rejected, stating that the event had to be an "outdoor" competition.
The FEI Dressage Calendar Task Force has now back paddled on its recommendations and agreed that the 9 - 13 December dates and the indoor setting are good for the 2020 World Championships to go.
