In 2016, the world championship returned to the Netherlands after nearly 20 years in Germany. Crowds from all over the world flocked to Ermelo to revel in dressage for four days. The enthusiasm did not go unnoticed by the FEI, that again awarded the event to Ermelo from 2017 until 2019. In 2021, Verden hosted the battle for the medals. In 2022 the WC celebrated another successful edition in Ermelo and this year as well as 2024, the WC for young dressage horses takes place in the Netherlands once again.
