19/10/2020 – Over 10 days ago it was announced that the NRHA European Derby scheduled in conjunction with Equitá Lyon will be postponed to 2021. Equitá Lyon itself, featuring among others several important Jumping- and Dressage Grand Prix’s, was still on. Without public and without the exhibition though and the event was expanded to 9 days of sports.
Last week French president Emmanuel Macron announced stricter measures in order to stop the further spread of the corona virus, among which a further restriction of the number of people allowed to gather together and a curfew after 21:00 hours. As a result GL Events, the organizer of Equitá Lyon, has decided to postpone the total event to 2021.
