Federation ‘deeply sorry’ as admin error means Royal Windsor loses top status

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.
