Year after year, so it seams, the hosts of the World Equestrian Games withdraw their applications. Almost always the high costs are the reason for the withdrawal. Now Samorin has declined to host the 2022 WEG. Ingmar De Vos, FEI president, said during the general assembly in Montevideothat the organisers h ad decided not to sign the host agreement. Longer discussions took place but Samorin withdrew its application. The FEI did not announce the reasons for the withdrawal. Now the application process has started again, there is a new deadline and the new host will be announced at next year’s general assembly. Ingmar De Vos was confident there would be new applicants even though the games were very complex.
