Is it really that time again? Yes, yes it is. It is time for the Equestrian Games!
This year disciplines will include Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting, Reigning, Para-Dressage, Polo and Horse-Ball. Which ones are you going to watch? Which top riders or countries are you rooting for?
The last World Equestrian Games, in 2010, were held in Kentucky. 2010 was the first year that the Games were held outside Europe. 2010 was also the first Games in which all championship rounds were held at the same location. At the 2010 World Equestrian Games, 57 countries from around the world where represented by 800 riders and their mounts. This year, athletes from over 70 counties will compete in 8 disciplines.
A personal favorite of Hope Haven Equestrian Center, Beezie Madden will be back from her injury just in time for the Games this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOHOZj_FNA0
