The world-famous Padise Equestrian Centre (PEC) is to host the FEI Endurance World Championship for Young Horses 2023 following the decision taken by the FEI Board via videoconference on 15 and 16 June 2021.
The PEC venue is situated near the shore of the Baltic Sea, about an hour's drive from Tallinn, the capital of the Republic of Estonia.
For the first time in equestrian history, the FEI Endurance World Championship for Young Horses will be held in Northern Europe.
"We are honoured to accept the decision of the FEI Board to award Padise the right to host the FEI Endurance World Championship for Young Horses 2023," said PEC owner Jelena Sbitneva.
A total of 72 FEI Endurance Events have been held at PEC since 2017, hosting the FEI Endurance World Championship for the first time.
The venue has earned worldwide recognition for its permanent infrastructure and is Europe's only permanent endurance village.
The track passes through a beautiful forest designed to regulate speed and naturally challenge riders' skills. The PEC is known for producing technical rides that prioritise the welfare of the horses.
