the hague 1994
the hague netherlands


while reflecting on the tremendous success in the aftermath of the first world equestrian games in stockholm, then fei president, hrh prince philip warned that "three years is insufficient for any federation to put together the very large and sophisticated organisation that is needed to manage such an event", words which proved to be very prophetic…

indeed, the 1994 world equestrian games were, unfortunately, unable to sustain the momentum gathered during the first ever weg. the second weg, at the hague in the netherlands in 1994, is mainly remembered for the financial disaster it turned out to be and the enormous organisational problems inherent throughout the preparation stages and the event. despite the poor organization and management of the event, the sport was excellent and the show jumping championships were no exception with many outstanding moments.. this time it was to be germany that scored the double when taking the individual and team gold medals and german horse-breeding got a tremendous boost when four fabulous german- bred mares battled it out in the change-horse finale.

the games were generally followed by a large number of spectators; however, the numbers could have been even greater had the ticketing process worked properly. nonetheless, the games did attract satisfactory sponsorship.
