With a bit over 500 days to go until the next FEI World Equestrian Games, the organizers have unveiled the event’s official logo along with a new promotional video. The logo was presented during last week’s FEI World Cup Finals for show jumping and dressage, which were held in Omaha, Nebraska.
Although the venue of the games, the Tryon International Equestrian Center, is a relatively new facility, the format of the games looks to be similar to recent past WEGs. The games will include the same eight disciplines that have been featured in competition at the past two WEGs in 2010 and 2014: show jumping; dressage; three-day eventing; reining; combined driving; endurance; vaulting; and para-dressage.
The Tryon 2018 organizers have also released a preliminary schedule of competition showing which days each discipline will run. The games begin on Tuesday, September 11 with the opening ceremonies and hit the ground running with endurance, reining, and dressage all kicking off the following day. Tap here to view the schedule.
