The search has begun for a new host city for the 2022 World Equestrian Games, following the withdrawal of Samorin, Slovka, from the honour. Who would be best to shoulder the financial burden and be logistically able to host the 2022 WEQ? Of the possible venues, four are in the United States — two World Equestrian Center locations in Ocala, Florida, and Wilmington, Ohio; the Tryon International Equestrian Center, in Mill Spring, North Carolina; and the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky.
