The horses and athletes have arrived in Tryon and the finishing touches on the massive Tryon International Equestrian Center are down to the wire with competition commencing on September 12th. Over the next two weeks, horse fans from around the world will be treated to the highest level of equestrian competition across multiple disciplines.
There is a large amount of information to digest regarding all the different team competitions, representing not only the USA, but also all the nations. We’ve simplified things by breaking down the most important information, so you can tune into your favorite discipline over the next several weeks. Multiple members of the Dressage, Para Dressage and Show Jumping teams are either based out of Wellington or are regular competitors at WEF and Global, so we’ll be keeping a keen eye on these specific disciplines. Mark Bellissimo, CEO of Equestrian Sports Productions, has been working around the clock with his staff for the past year to get this massive facility ready for the World Equestrian Games.
Matt Varney and Craig Martin are traveling to Tryon to cheer on our US teams, so check back frequently post-WEG for our wrap up of the the dressage, show jumping, and eventing competitions.
