Just as competitors were arriving and beginning to unload their lorries, organizers at the Chatsworth International Horse Trials (UK), also the site of the next FEI Nations Cup leg, made the difficult decision to cancel this weekend’s event. The decision comes after 12 hours of heavy downpours that have saturated the grounds and created untenable circumstances.

“We are devastated to announce that due to the last 12 hours of heavy rain on site, under instruction from the BE and FEI officials we have been forced to cancel the 2024 Chatsworth International Horse Trials,” the event shared on social media. “We are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause. Our team has worked incredibly hard to organise the event, however the decision has been taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our athletes, visitors and horses, which is our number one priority. All ticket holders will be contacted to process a full refund. There is no need to contact us.”
