World Equestrian Games, Aug 20 – Sept 3, 2006

2 08 2006

The World Equestrian Games will be starting soon in Aachen, and feature competition in seven disciplines: show jumping, dressage, three-day eventing, driving, endurance, vaulting and reining. If you can’t be there in person, you can monitor the action through a webcam mounted on top of the Judges’ Tower, order some souvenirs, or watch all the action on TV. CBC Country Canada will be showing the Games in Canada; HorseTV will be handling U.S. coverage. Any readers outside North America who can let everyone know where the Games will be broadcast in their country?

Oh, and the 2010 Games will be held in Lexington, Kentucky.
