The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ are the most highly regarded in equestrian sport.
Comprised of the 7 FEI disciplines - Dressage, Driving, Endurance, Eventing, Jumping, Reining and Vaulting and including competitions for Para-equestrians - the Games are often rated above the Olympics (which are hosting 3 FEI disciplines). Held every 4 years and attracting more than 500,000 on-site spectators, the Games showcase the world's most exceptional equine athletes and reinforce interest in all equestrian sports worldwide.
The concept of Games is still relatively young. The first edition was staged in 1990 in Stockholm (SWE), followed by The Hague (NED), Rome (ITA), Jerez de la Frontera (ESP), Aachen (GER) and Lexington (USA). Germany, United States and France top the all time medal list, in first, second and third respectively.
The 2014 edition of the Games will take place in a true equestrian heartland, Region Normandy, France and FEI TV show will provide the most comprehensive live and highlights coverage to its subscribers.
