The 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games are now just 204 days away and top equestrian athletes are working to get their spot on the teams that will represent the United States on home turf.

The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is encouraging fans to follow along as the team selection trials get underway. The Pick 8 Contest on Club Equestrian gives you the chance to select riders and earn points based on how well they do in the trials and during WEG competition.

In the Pick 8 Game you are awarded points for selecting the right competitors. Along the way you will find educational resources on equestrian disciplines and competitors to help you make your selections. The person with the most points at the end of each competition wins.
