The F.E.I. World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses were a pilot project when they were inaugurated in Verden in 1997. They were modeled on the World Breeding Show Jumping Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken, Studbook Zangersheide (Belgium). In 1999 and 2000, they were held in Arnheim (Netherlands), and in 2010, Verden/Aller will be the venue for the eleventh time. Following lots of considerations and discussions, the F.E.I. determined the selection criteria so that there will not be more than 50 competitors in each age-group (five- and six-year-old horses).
