It’s Great Britain Again For WEG Para Dressage Gold

Lexington, Ky., Oct. 7

Great Britain quite simply dominated the para dressage at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, clinching gold for the team and six individual medals. The press conference following the medal ceremonies was downright raucous with spontaneous applause throughout and the silver-medal German team supporters popping open bottles of champagne at regular intervals.

Rector Hopes Flambo Will Lead Him To Victory In WEG Four-In-Hand Driving

Experience is essential when it comes to success at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and fortunately for Josh Rector, who is competing as an individual for the United States in driving, Flambo might be one of the most experienced horses at this year’s event.

World Equestrian Games: They’re Here!

Can you believe the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games are only two days away? It’s crazy, right? It seems like we’ve been working nonstop here at the Chronicle for months on end to prepare for the WEG Preview Issue (which we published on Sept. 17, so don’t miss out on your copy), and now we’re packing camera bags and suitcases and loading cars so we can make our own “Journey To The WEG.”

Pearse Lyons Sees Opportunities Everywhere

This Irish entrepreneur brings more than business sense to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

He calls himself a storyteller, a fatalist, a brewer, a father, a husband and a businessman, but even these titles don’t fully define Pearse Lyons. While his family—wife Deirdre, son Mark and daughter Aoife—is most important to him, making a difference in the world is a close second to the owner and founder of the World Equestrian Games’ title sponsor, Alltech.

World Equestrian Games: Vaulting

Of all the sports at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, I’m most excited to see vaulting. While I have either competed in or covered all of the other disciplines, I’ve never actually witnessed vaulting at a world-class level. Years ago I attempted to vault at summer camp, and I mastered standing and flying re-mounts, but my career as a vaulter was fairly short-lived.

A few theories exist about the roots of vaulting.

World Equestrian Games: Reining

At one arena at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, whooping and hollering will be encouraged, and no one will need an excuse to don a cowboy hat and blue jeans. I’d be willing to bet that the reining competition at this year’s WEG is going to be the loudest and proudest. In fact, the tickets to the reining individual final are the only event so far to sell out.

World Equestrian Games: Para-Dressage

When author Helen Thompson wrote, “In riding a horse, we borrow freedom,” she was probably referring to the way horses allow us to experience things we could never accomplish on our own two feet. I like to think that Ms. Thompson’s sentiment is doubly true when it comes to para-equestrian.

World Equestrian Games: Show Jumping

We’re less than a month away from the opening ceremonies of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and time has been flying here at The Chronicle. We are all working hard to provide you with the best possible coverage of the Games, so make sure you tune in starting Sept. 25!

World Equestrian Games: Eventing

While walking the two-star cross-country course at the Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships, our editorial intern, Ali Taylor Lange, and I came across a jump that had us scratching our heads. Clearly, it was not intended for the two-star riders, who might have cried a little upon approaching the massive creation.
