World Equestrian Games

I was just wondering if anybody here was going to this? I am planning on going to at least one day of the reining. The tickets are outrageous ($95/session for the reining and there are 2 sessions each day) but I definitely think it is worth it. I'm just glad that I live as close to Lexington as I do, it can be made as a day trip.

Oh, and I know that its a year from now, but the tickets go on sale the 25th of this month :)

So what do you guys think? Do you all have plans to go???

Here is the link to the ticketing information:

I was thinking about it but the tickets are outrageous. And I am not a huge reining fan, if it was reained cowhorse, I would be there in a heart beat.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I want to go. I signed up to volunteer 2 years ago but they said they didn't need help :/. So.. If I do go, I will have to pay the outrageous ticket prices. I just want to see the cross country portion of the 3 day. But I'm not sure if you can do that.

I will just have gotten back from Australia/New Zealand so I don't know if I can swing it

I think that you can go for parts of it of the eventing. There are lots of different sessions that I would love to see, but geeze its expensive. I pulled the tickets the first day and almost died. Oh well, hopefully my mom will buy me a session ticket for one day and then hubby could buy the other??? I think they would make great Christmas gifts! haha :)

John Williams rode the uncle to my boy a few years ago winning Gold with his US event team mates.

Was followed up with Olympic bronze on the same horse.

Katy and I have toyed with the idea of going (we love KY Horse Park), but the prices may prove to be a deterrent.

Mac - yeah, I was shocked when I saw ticket prices... but going to the horse park is definitely worth it. I haven't been in forever.

I want to go but its hard to make a commitment since I will be in the middle of student teaching that year, and my boyfriend will be in his first year of law school so he might not be able to accompany me. But I might throw caution into the wind and go for it. I am sure I can find someone to go with me if he cant.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

I'm going to try and go if my coach qualifies and my school schedule allows, otherwise I'll stream the dressage on the internet.
