The World Equestrian Games is almost here!
The finest athletes from 76 nations will compete against each other in the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in and around the historic town of Caen, in Normandy, France, from August 23 to September 7. The games are held every four years, two years prior to the Olympics, and are undoubtedly the biggest equestrian event in the world.
Excitingly, Australia is fielding exceptionally strong teams in all 8 official Fédération Equestre Internationale disciplines:
Three of the disciplines are competed in the Olympics (Jumping, Dressage, and Eventing) with Para-Dressage being represented at the Paralympics.
Did you know that horse riding is the only Olympic and Paralympic sport to have both sexes competing in the same competition and where the athlete and horse both receive medals?
With one gold and a couple of bronze medals in the 2010 World Equestrian Games, the Australian team are hoping to improve further on these great results. The team is made up of a number of very experienced competitors who have competed in multiple Olympics plus a number of World Games. There are also a group of young competitors who have made the team – the new shining stars of the Australian equestrian world. For more information on the teams take a look at Equestrian Australia.
Broadcast in more than 200 territories worldwide, in more than 20 languages, this is a huge international event. You’ll be able to catch up on all the news and results at the official video website of the Fédération Equestre Internationale FEI TV.
If you have aspirations to become an Australian equestrian star, perhaps try out one of our clinics to improve or learn new skills! We offer a variety of training in disciplines such as dressage, jumping, cross-country and Western.
