ECCO FEI World Championships Herning - Denmark 2022

About us

The story

The main characters behind the hosting team of the Championships are the two owners Casper Cassøe and Jens Trabjerg.

Together they have great experience as organizers of many international shows and championships, and in cooperation they strive for success with hosting The Championships in 2022.

In November 2019 the International equestrian federation (FEI) assigned the World Championships in Jumping, Dressage, Para dressage and Vaulting 2022 to Denmark.

As a new concept the FEI had opened for the bidders to be able to bid on separate disciplines instead of all 8 disciplines and the Danish team consisting of the Danish Equestrian Federation, Herning Municipality, Sport Event Denmark and the WC-company (Jens Trabjerg and Casper Cassøe) made a bid for Jumping, Dressage, Para dressage and Vaulting.
The wait was long but, but we are honored to be able to host these disciplines in what we aim to be the best World Championships ever created. The full World Championships 2022 team looks forward to seeing everybody in Herning from August 6th  to August 14th 2022.
