The World Equestrian games are undoubtedly the pinnacle of the sport. Held every four years in between Olympic cycles, the WEG hosts world championship competitions for each of the eight FEI disciplines: show jumping, dressage, eventing, vaulting, driving, reining, endurance, and para-equestrian. Similar to the Olympics, the venue also changes with each Games. For 2018, the WEG will be held in Tryon, NC at the brand-new Tryon International Equestrian Center, site of this year’s American Eventing Championships.
Organizers, riders, and fans of equestrian sport alike are thrilled that the WEG has come back to the USA! The venue at Tryon is state-of-the-art, and will doubtless provide a wonderful experience for both competitors and spectators. The 1,600 acre site holds 1,200 permanent stalls for equine competitors, 12 arenas, a cross country course, miles of trails, and seating, dining, and shopping for thousands of spectators. Tryon is a world-class facility, and ideal for hosting the world-class WEG competition.
WEG 2018 will be held from September 10-23, 2018. Ticketing information will be available beginning in January 2017. For more information, visit: www.tryonweg.com.
