The French Equestrian Federation (FFE) has announced the horse-and-rider combinations that have been selected to represent France at the 2020 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden, Germany, on 9 - 13 October 2020.
The French selection is done by two different departments. The Societé Hippique Française (SHF) selects the 5 and 6-year olds while the FFE picks the 7-year olds.
Most recently the 2020 French Young Horse Championships were held in Fontainebleau and last weekend the 7-year old Championships took place in Le Mans, but the actual team selections were held at an observation trial in Le Mans, the same weekend as the 7-YO Nationals.
