UKI US Open Change of Date

The 2020 US Open will now take place on 12th - 15 November 2020 at Jacksonville Equestrian Centre (same venue).

In these unprecedented times we have been faced with many cancellations throughout North America, the UK as well as the WAO in the Netherlands. To clarify the WAO situation, handlers from over 40 nations had qualified to compete in May to represent their country and invested large sums of non-refundable money in travel, hotels and team uniforms. Due to these factors postponing rather than cancelling WAO was something we have worked very hard to do.

The only viable dates offered to us, where we felt this crisis might have subsided and the teams are still able to travel before winter sets in, was the last weekend in October. Unfortunately this meant it became logistically impossible to run the US Open on its scheduled date as most of our organising team would not arrive in to the US until Wednesday (with set up starting Monday). We are grateful to JEC for being able to offer us an alternative date but again we had very limited options.

We appreciate the new date now clashes with the USDAA Cynosport event. We took advise from several of our trial managers, judges and competitors and were informed that due to the original dates being just a week apart, very few competitors would be attending both anyway. We do apologise for anyone who had intended to compete at the Open and USDAA.
(FYI, the UK Grand Finals is also having to move dates and we will again again state these changes have only happened due to the COVID 19 situation and only due to no other options available to us to run our 3 main events, it is not something we would ever want to do or do again.)

As with every decision we are making at this time we are damned if we do and damned if we don't and whatever we do we cannot make everyone happy. We anticipate a few individuals will be unhappy with our decision and social media will be awash with criticism! However, if you are disappointed with our decision, before you post negative comments, just consider how lucky you are to only have to be upset about choosing which event to attend and how this really is such a trivial thing in comparison to what is currently happening in the world.

We hope the majority of our customers worldwide will understand why these changes have had to be made and hope everyone can be back enjoying their agility before too long.

Stay safe.
