Sunday, June 3. 3-5pm
This month Tryon Riding & Hunt Club and Tryon Fine Arts Center will host “WEG Talks”. This free and open-to-the-public conversation about the disciplines featured in the upcoming 2018 World Equestrian Games (WEG) will be held twice – Thursday, May 24th and Sunday, June 3rd.
Award-winning equestrian journalist, senior USEF dressage judge and TR&HC board member, Margaret Freeman will lead the talks. Having covered equestrian events at seven Olympic Games for the Associated Press, Margaret will share her unique understanding of world class equestrian competition with the community.
These sessions will aim to educate local residents about the eight disciplines that make up the 2018 FEI WEG – Dressage, Driving, Endurance, Eventing, Jumping, Para-Equestrian Dressage, Reining and Vaulting.
Through a multimedia presentation Freeman will provide an overview of each discipline; describe the rules and regulations of each; describe how each is scored; explain the type of horses and equipment used; and share the individuals and countries that are favored at September’s competition.
Local residents of all ages and experience levels – from avid riders to enthusiastic spectators – are encouraged to attend. These talks are a great way for any one who is interested in WEG to become more familiar with the particulars of each discipline.
Light refreshments will be provided at both sessions.
While these sessions are offered at no cost, reservations are requested. Click below to save your seat.
