Eventing: another cancellation
The 2020 Houghton International Horse Trials - scheduled for May 21-24 - have been cancelled.
Alec Lochore is Musketeer Event Management's Director Alec Lochore and is also the Eventing Competition Manager for the Tokyo Olympic Games - now moved to July 2021: "The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the lives of us all. Whether my small team in Norfolk who plan events such as Houghton or the larger team I work with on a daily basis in Tokyo, we have to stop and take stock."
"In unprecedented times we need to work together to support the healthcare workers around the world and adhere to the measures taken by world leaders and sporting governing bodies to help stop the spread of the virus to protect and save lives.”
The Badminton Horse Trials have already been cancelled. Badminton’s organisers have set 5-9 May 2021 for their next competition.
