Lexington was proud to host the 2010 World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Attendance at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games topped half a million. We had the honor of being the first city outside of Europe to ever host these prestigious world championships.
A record twenty-seven teams competed in eight disciplines. Fifty-eight countries were represented with 632 athletes and 752 horses.
We were fortunate to get to spend the a day at the park and we had a wonderful time. We attended the Individual Vaulting Event, marveled at the horses, the competitors, the beautiful grounds, the exhibits and vendors and all the languages being spoken.
What a fantastic event -- makes me proud to be a Kentuckian!
