2018 was a turbulent and energetic year for the equestrian sport. The organizational debate at the Equestrian Games in Tryon, for example, where the endurance discipline was stopped and the Dressage Test was cancelled. Not only did this cause negative headlines, but it also led to the situation where there will be no World Equestrian Games in 2022 and instead the championships will be done individually.
