WILMINGTON, Ohio – March 13, 2020 – The outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created an unprecedented situation that is rapidly evolving with an unknown outcome. 

Our first priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, staff and officials. After careful consideration, World Equestrian Center management has elected to close after competition ends on Sunday, March 15, 2020. The facility will remain closed for next week and we will continue to address the closures week by week. We will proactively issue updates regarding our reopening.

During this time, will continue to pay our officials and our staff.

World Equestrian Center management will monitor the situation and work with federal, state and local health agencies to assess our options for reopening.

Exhibitors who were slated to attend events at World Equestrian Center in the next two weeks will receive an email from management.

Please email General Manager TJ Campbell at with questions.
