The BEST equestrian competition!!

I posted this somewhere else but I think it fits best here actually! So:


It surprises me that some people haven't heard of the World Equestrian Games! In reality "WEG" is actually more important to equestrian riders than the Olympics, believe it or not! This year it's being hosted in Lexington, Kentucky.

Please watch my video, it's an advertisement for it, but I tried to make it interesting! It has dressage, eventing, show jumping, vaulting, driving, reining, endurance, and paraequestrian all in one video! :)

Cool video, are you from the states? If so, do they come on tv?

Thanks so much for watching!
Yes I'm from the states, and honestly I'm not sure :/. My guess as of now is that they will be shown online on a live stream sort of thing, but you would have to pay to be able to watch it most likely.

I bought this year's Rolex on live stream, and it costed $19.99, so maybe WEG will do the same sort of thing! As for TV, my honest guess would be no, but I really don't know!

I watch the WEG on TV every four years! A few years ago Irish rider Dermot Lennon won the Individual Showjumping

Lucky! For some reason the US doesn't like to broadcast equestrian events very much :/.

And eventerdrew-- that's exciting! What college are you going to? And do they have an equestrian team? Sorry it's just that I'm a junior in high school and need to start figuring out where to go, and I want to go somewhere in the east (KY, VA, NC, that sort of area)

Thank you! :)
And ohhh yeah I've looked them up a lot, but aren't they an all-girls school? I don't think I'd want to go to one of those :/
