The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) says it is “deeply sorry” after an administrative error meant Royal Windsor Horse Show will lose its five-star status for next year.
The BEF said yesterday the CSI5* application for the 2020 event was not submitted to the FEI by the deadline last September.
Once the error came to light, the BEF made a late submission for five-star consideration.
“It is with enormous regret that we announce this was rejected by the two show organisers, who are also running top-level shows on the same date (La Baule and Madrid),” said a BEF spokesman.
