World Equestrian Games

So who is going? If so, to see what?

We are going to see the cross country section of eventing on the 2nd, just ground passes on the 5th & vaulting on the 6th.

I heard there is going to be so much going on that we should be really busy even the day we just got a ground pass for. Sounds like there will be lots of booths from various countries there - just think we can shop tack from other countries all in one spot!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I will be performing with my Miniature Horse Driving Drill team, the Az Mini Mystique (www.minimystique.org) Oct 3-10! (well, hubby and I fly in on the 4th so we miss performing the first two days, although my horse will be there performing haha! Mine is the blue roan, he will be doing flags with another member those first two days as well as the second performance of the last day since we have to fly back that evening).

For those wanting to know if there was live coverage! This was emailed to me today.

NBC Networks Unite for Most-Ever Live U.S. TV Coverage of Equestrian Sports
Staff Writer
Universal Sports and NBC Sports are teaming up to provide fans with the most extensive live television coverage of equestrian sports in U.S. history.

NBC Sports will air 8 hours of LIVE coverage on three consecutive weekends, beginning this Saturday at 12 Noon ET. Universal Sports will show more than 15 hours LIVE, including the majority of the show jumping competition. Universal Sports will also air taped broadcasts of the Reining Final, the Dressage Freestyle, the Driving competition and the Vaulting Final.

The joint effort will include more than 30 hours of live and taped television coverage of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. This total amount of U.S. television coverage is unprecedented for equestrian sports in this country.
This prestigious international event is being held at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington from September 25 to October 10. Lexington-area cable operator Insight Communications will offer the Universal Sports network to its subscribers on a trial basis beginning on September 24, allowing local horse enthusiasts to watch the action from start to finish.
The World Equestrian Games is held once every four years, with 2010 marking the first time the event will be held on U.S. soil. The games feature the best riders and drivers in eight disciplines – dressage, show jumping, eventing, vaulting, reining, driving, endurance and para-equestrian dressage, which involves disabled riders. The 16-day competition is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to Lexington, a city known as the “Horse Capital of the World.
All sessions of competition from equestrian's three Olympic disciplines -- dressage, eventing and jumping -- will be streamed LIVE on UniversalSports.com for a one-time subscription fee of $29.99. A daily purchase option of $12.99 also will be available. Full replays of subscription content will be provided for on-demand viewing. The live streams begin with dressage (Sept. 27-29, Oct. 1), continue with eventing (Sept. 30, Oct. 1-3) and conclude with jumping (Oct. 4-6, 8-9). For details and a complete schedule of coverage on UniversalSports.com, go to universalsports.com/equestrian.
Additional live coverage of the international disciplines of reining, driving, vaulting, endurance, and recorded coverage of para-equestrian dressage, will air on the United States Equestrian Federation Network at www.USEFNetwork.com. Pay-Per-View coverage of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will also be offered at www.FEITV.org.

In addition to the coverage in the U.S., the European Broadcasting Union holds the digital rights for European nations. Check your local listings for broadcast times in your country.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm so desperate to go. Ah, the agony. Really, really wish I could. Tickets are crazy expensive though D:

But I just read that it will be in Normandie, France, in 2014, and as I hope to be transferring to university in the UK, this will be the perfect graduation present *hint to parents* lol.
