The Australian Team that will compete in the FEI Driving World Championships Four In Hand at Valkenswaard, Netherlands from the 7-11 October 2020 will comprise of Boyd Exell, Elizabeth Lawrence and Tor Van Den Berge.

Janelle Marshall, who was previously shortlisted for the team, has withdrawn her EOI for team selection due to logistical complications relating to Covid-19.

This year’s rescheduled Championships, held in the stunning surrounds of Exell Equestrian will be closed to the public due to Covid-19. Originally the World Championships were scheduled to take place in Kronenberg, Netherlands in September 2020, however the impact of Covid-19 resulted in the event being cancelled, prior to an application by Valkenswaard to host the event in October being approved by the FEI Board.

The event will feature driving sport at the highest level across 3 disciplines: Dressage, Marathon and Cones.

Good luck to the Australian team!
