2002 World Equestrian Games, Jerez

Date: 10th September – 22th September 2002


When the fourth FEI World Equestrian Games™ were staged in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain in 2002, the future of the fixture was hanging in the balance; a natural response to a rather chequered history. That said there was great optimism during the years running up to the event: the Games had been awarded to the Spanish city in 1997, so there was plenty of time to work up enthusiasm.

It is likely however that another disaster would definitely have put an end to the event and the outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease in Europe in 2001 did nothing to boost confidence in its survival. However this time, the equestrian community breathed a sigh of relief, when sufficient financial backing and thorough organisation led to a very successful edition of the FEI World Equestrian Games™ (WEG). Indeed, Jerez 2002 kicked off in style and was afterwards hailed a great success. A success which proved that, when well organised, they are truly the crown of the FEI Championships.
