There are plenty of opportunities it to make the top of your horse sport – the Olympics, World Cup, National Championships and, of course, the upcoming World Equestrian Games. Ask any horse person what their riding goal is and they’ll likely say “the Olympics.” But those games only include the disciplines of dressage, show jumping and eventing. What about you reiners, vaulters, drivers, para dressage and endurance equestrians?
Since 1990, the FEI World Equestrian Games are the major international championships for equestrianism, and are administered by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI). The games have been held every four years, halfway between two consecutive Summer Olympic Games.
If you want see (or participate) in ALL the equestrian disciplines, you’ll love The World Equestrian Games (WEG). While, like the Olympics, they are held every four years and at various venues around the world, this year we’ll have them right in our own backyard in Tryon, North Carolina from September 11th-16th, 2018. That’s less than a month away and tickets are available.
Scheduled to be the ultimate human-equine interaction event, not only will you be able to see up close the beauty and power of horses in a variety of disciplines, but WEG is also set to host an array of diverse programming that includes renowned exhibitions, demonstrations, authors and speakers. The EQUUS Film Festival and an extensive Art Festival will accompany more than 200 vendors in a family-friendly, immersive and interactive experience.
