The First World Equestrian Games Held in The United States

The long anticipated WORLD EQUESTRIAN GAMES finally took place in Kentucky on September 25th for 16 glorious days.

This acclaimed park has over 1,200 acres and has hosted some of the most prestigious events in the country. The Rolex, The High Hope Steeplechase, The Egyptian Event, and of course, most recently the WEG. Nearly a million people visit this park each year.

The WEG featured these recognized disciplines: dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, para dressage, reining and vaulting. A blue grass state rich with tradition, has left its mark on everyone who had the privilege to visit the park during the World Equestrian Games, including myself.

The opening ceremony featured Mario Contreras, an exceptional horseman and athlete. I had the opportunity to talk with Mario and Jill McGrae, from Mc Crae Farm in Grayslake, Il. Please enjoy the short video above.

The horse that Mario is riding is an Andalusian Stallion named Xiomaro BR owned by Tiana Ng.
