Saumur 3-day event canceled, may be rescheduled

SAUMUR, France--The Comité Equestre de Saumur has cancelled its International event, which would have run from May 21 – 24, due to Covid-19

19 saumur arinadtha chavatanonThailand's Arinadtha Chavatanont and Boleybawn Prince at Saumur 2019“The extension of the lockdown announced by the President of the French Republic in his speech of last April 13 makes it impossible to maintain Saumur Complet on its initial date” said Marie-Claude Varin-Missire, President of the Comité Équestre de Saumur.

However, they are hoping to run later in the year if at all possible

“The Comité Equestre de Saumur is studying the possibility of organizing the event during the second semester of 2020 following the calendar of international competitions”

“Furthermore, in view of the postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games, we are already working with the FFE and the FEI to organize the schedule for 2021 in order to support the athletes and allow them to have the required qualifications to participate in the next Olympic Games in 2021”

 

SAUMUR 2019 was an important qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games where both China and Thailand secured their team spots

Faced with the spread of the COVID-19 virus in France and abroad, the team of the Comité Equestre de Saumur worked for weeks in collaboration with the French Equestrian Federation (FFE), the FEI and the com- petent health authorities to consider solutions to keep Saumur Complet from 21 to 24 May 2020.

However, the extension of the lockdown announced by the President of the French Republic in his speech of last April 13 makes it impossible to maintain «Saumur complet» on its initial date.

Very conscious of the sporting and economic consequences of the cancellation of such an important event, the Comité Equestre de Saumur’s actually studying the possibility of organizing the event during the second semester of 2020 following the calendar of international competitions.

Furthermore, in view of the postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games, we are already working with the FFE and the FEI to organize the schedule for 2021 in order to support the athletes and allow them to have the required qualifications to participate in the next Olympic Games in 2021.

The Comité Équestre de Saumur would like to thank very sincerely in advance the many people involved in this event for their understanding, and is convinced in advance of everyone’s good will to create a beautiful sports and cultural event next autumn.
