The FEI has amended the regulations for the World Cup Dressage Final 2021. This decision was made on the basis of the changes in the qualification schedule. Because of COVID-19 only one Western European League qualifier was held. In 2021 only two are scheduled.
Under normal circumstances, Western Europe will have nine of the eighteen starting places in the Final at its disposal. Now there are three more, plus two extra Central European tickets and a starting place for title defender Isabell Werth.
As a result, fifteen of the eighteen final tickets are for European combinations and three places are available for riders from a country not included in the world cup league.
