“The welfare of the horse is our priority and should never be subordinated to the influences of competition or trade.“
The Union Européenne du Trot was first established in 1973. It originally brought together 9 national federations in Europe, who decided to pool their efforts aimed at setting up a supranational common entity. Its influence grew over time.
The UET was founded by Germany, Austria, Belgium, Danmark, France, Italy, the Nederlands, Norway and Sweden.
It is a harnessed trotting horse race taking place in the fall on a European racecourse designated each year by the UET.
Several European races will be determined with a points system before a final organized in October and which will take place half the time in France.
