The official schedule of the 2010 Alltech International Equestrian Federation (FEI) World Equestrian Games has now been confirmed.
Sixteen days of 8 equestrian disciplines will be run at The Kentucky Horse Park. It will be the first time the Games will be held outside Europe and with all 8 disciplines in a single site.
The opening ceremonies of the Games will be held on 25 September 2010 and the Games will end on 10 October 2010.
The first weekend will include vaulting and endurance, while dressage and eventing will be held in week 1. In week 2, jumping, para dressage, driving and reining will be contested.
“This schedule is certain to provide an exciting variety of top sport on each of the 16 days of the Games,” said competition director Kate Jackson. “Spectators will find events of interest every day and will be entertained by the beauty and spectacle that is inherent to equestrian competition at this level.”
“I am particularly happy that we are able, for the first time, to include Para-Equestrian as an integral part of the World Equestrian Games.”
