The FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Tryon, North Carolina is underway in spite of the threat of Hurricane Florence.
The FEI World Equestrian Games™, held every four years in the middle of the Olympic cycle, is one of the biggest events on the global sporting calendar, combining eight equestrian World Championship caliber events in a pre-determined location. The FEI disciplines – Jumping, Dressage and Para-Equestrian Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting and Reining – are all included on the competition schedule, while equestrian-focused demonstrations and exhibitions will also be hosted throughout the duration of the event. The 2018 edition of the FEI World Equestrian Games™ will be held in Mill Spring, NC, over thirteen days from September 11-23rd, 2018 at Tryon International Equestrian Center.
Assuming Florence behaves herself and doesn’t wreak her wrath on the games there is plenty of TV action to keep you in the loop and get you your WEG fix! Here’s the latest schedule.
