World’s Biggest Equine Airlift for FEI World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018 Underway
The largest commercial airlift of horses ever undertaken in the history of horse sport has begun ahead of the FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2018, which get underway in North Carolina on the 11th of September.
The FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018 will see human and equine athletes compete from 11-23 September for 29 medals in the Olympic disciplines of Eventing, Jumping and Dressage, the Paralympic sport of Para-Dressage, alongside Driving, Endurance, Reining and Vaulting.
The first 67 of a total 550 supremely fit airborne equine athletes have now set foot – or should that be hoof – on the Tryon International Equestrian Center venue, nine days before the start of one of the biggest sporting events on US soil this year.
They will join a further 270 horses coming overland to team up with their human partners from over 70 countries at these Games, which are world championships in all of the FEI’s eight disciplines and qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
