The USA Equestrian Board of Directors, acting on the recommendation of the FEI Competitions Committee, granted to the Kentucky Horse Park the right to bid on behalf of the United States for the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Bid preparation will continue until October 2004, when final bids are due to the FEI in Lausanne, Switzerland.

John Nicholson, Director of the Kentucky Horse Park says, “We remain confident that the Kentucky Horse Park can produce a World Equestrian Games that will make our country and the world proud. The Horse Park is blessed with a number of world-class facilities and we are intent on adding even more. I am excited about the future.”

The 2006 World Equestrian Games will be held in Aachen, Germany, from August 22 – September 3. Riders will compete in the seven international disciplines of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, reining and vaulting.

USA Equestrian Inc., as the National Equestrian Federation of the U.S., is the regulatory body for the Olympic and World Championship sports of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, reining, show jumping, and vaulting, as well as 19 other breeds and disciplines of equestrian competition. As
