Following extensive consultation between the FEI and the respective Organising Committees, the CDIOs of Falsterbo (SWE) and Rotterdam (NED) will not host legs of the FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ in 2024. However, both Events will proceed as regular CDIO5* and CDIO4* competitions, respectively.

In February, CDIO Aachen had declared its decision not to stage an FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ Event in 2024, opting instead to hold a regular CDIO5* Event. 

The Organising Committees of Falsterbo and Rotterdam decision to withdraw from the FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ 2024 was based on their preference to invite participating teams and confirm their participation independently of the updated regulations specified in Article 3.4 of the FEI Dressage Nations Cup Rules 2024.

The updates to the Rules were introduced with the purpose of promoting inclusivity and transparency in the invitation process, and extending invitations to all National Federations (NFs) who wished to participate in the FEI Nations Cup™ Series. 

The rule revision was approved by the FEI Board at their meeting in August 2023 and all National Federations were notified of the change immediately after. 

The FEI Dressage Nations Cup™ 2024 season, which began with its first leg in Wellington (USA) in February will take place in Compiegne (FRA) from 2 to 4 May, followed by Pilisjászfalu (HUN) from 8 to 12 May.

Following this year's Series, all stakeholders will convene to explore future possibilities for the FEI Nations Cup Dressage Series, and the FEI holds an optimistic outlook for its future success.
