The World Equestrian Games are comprised of the world championships for eight equestrian sports. The Games are held every four years, two years prior to the Olympic Games, and are governed by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI). The full range of disciplines is as follows:

The very first World Equestrian Games were held in Stockholm in 1990. Six disciplines were involved–Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance and Vaulting. In 1994 the city of The Hague in the Netherlands hosted the Games. After a late cancellation of the Games that were to be held in Dublin, Ireland, Rome stepped forward to host the 1998 Games on one year’s notice. All disciplines except the Endurance were held and beautifully executed considering the very short preparation time. The Endurance was held in Dubai that year.

The next Games were held in Jerez de Frontera, Spain in 2002 and included all six disciplines and Reining for the first time. Following that the Games went to Aachen 2006, again with seven disciplines, and were a fabulous success. In 2010 the games leave Europe for the first time and come to the United States to the Kentucky Horse Park where, for the first time, Para Dressage, the newest FEI Discipline will be competed together with the other seven.

There are a number of changes underway at the Kentucky Horse park as it prepares for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. These permanent additions and upgrades will benefit the Kentucky Horse Park before and long after the 2010 Games. These major changes include:

In addition to the permanent construction currently underway at the Park, the organizing committee of the 2010 Games is busy designing temporary additions including:

The Kentucky Horse Park is the place to get close to horses! It is dedicated to sharing Kentucky’s love of the horse with the world, and is an ideal place to attend the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010.

It is a working 1,200-acre horse farm, educational theme park, and equine competition facility which welcomes approximately 900,000 visitors and 15,000 competition horses each year to the heart of Kentucky’s famous Bluegrass Region. Featuring dozens of different breeds of horses at work and at play, the park showcases the horse in daily equine presentations, horse drawn tours, horseback riding, a movie presentation, and an exciting array of horse shows and special events throughout the year.

Visitors have the opportunity to meet living legends of the turf such as Cigar and Kentucky Derby winners Alysheba and Funny Cide, and to learn more about the history of the horse in the International Museum of the Horse, a Smithsonian affiliate, as well as Kentucky’s first native breed of horse in the American Saddlebred Museum.
