New date for the Belgian Dressage Championships announced

Belgium Dressage Events has received permission from Equestrian Flanders and KBRSF to organize the Belgian Dressage Championships this year. The BC will take place from 1 to 4 Oct 2020 at the Azelhof in Lier.

New date

It was uncertain when the organization would get the green light to reorganize the beloved event. But now that equestrian competitions are slowly getting back, Belgium Dressage Events has announced that it organizes the Belgian Dressage Championships in collaboration with Equestrian Flanders and the KBRSF from 1 to 4 October 2020. With a view to the European Championship for the youth and some CDI competitions in September, the BC will take place later in the season.

First edition at Azelhof

The four-day event will be organized for the first time this year at the Azelhof in Lier. Because the BC is due to move later in the season, the organization has chosen that the BC will be an indoor competition. During the event, all measures related to the coronavirus will be observed.

More information about the program will be announced shortly. Therefore, keep a close eye on the website and the socials of Belgium Dressage Events. We are looking forward to a nice edition.

Belgian Dressage Championships are moved

The Belgian Dressage Championships are postponed due to the coronavirus. The organization has not yet announced a new date.

Coronavirus
At the beginning of this year, it was announced that Belgium Dressage Events will take over the organization of the Belgian Dressage Championships. Not only did this move the event to the Azelhof location, it was also decided to have the championships take place earlier in the season. Unfortunately, due to the serious situation regarding the coronavirus, the organization had to choose to postpone the championships. The original date from 28 to 1 June will therefore be canceled. When the championships will take place will be announced later.

In close consultation with the KBRSF and Equestrian Flanders, it was decided not to cancel the Belgian Dressage Championship, but to postpone it to a later date this year. Keep an eye on the website and social media channels for the latest updates.
