Apparently, Tryon will simultanously host the inaugural WEQx Games. I guess they mean Equestrian X Games with that?

 

Anyway, these are the scheduled events:

U-25 U.S. Open Championship (Jumping)

U.S. Open Speed Horse (Jumping)

DerbyX (Hunter Derby)

Battle of the Sexes (Jumping)

Match Race (Jumping)

Puissance (Jumping)

Six Bar (Jumping)

Pony Jumpers (Jumping)

Gladiator Polo

 

Gladiator Polo seems to be basically 3x3 Polo. Maybe they want to get into the Olympics with this. :d

National selection processes are now in full swing. :DEN Denmark announced their dressage team long list.

 

Cathrine Dufour (Atterupgaards Cassidy)

Daniel Bachmann Andersen (Blue Hors Zack or Blue Hors Zepter)

Anna Zibrandtsen (Arlando)

Rikke Svane (Finckenstein)

Anders Dahl (Selten HW)

Anna Kasprzak (Rock Star)

Victoria Vallentin (Ludwig der Sonnenkonig)

Bettina Jager (Belstaff)

 

As expected, for the first time since 2011 Europeans Kasprzak's Donnperignon won't be on the team. Also no Agnete Kirk Thinggaard this time.

 

Dufour and Bachmann Andersen (on Zepter) could both be scoring over 80% by the WEG, which is quite exciting for Danish chances. However, their 3rd counting rider may be their undoing medal-wise...

:IRL Irish eventing team has been named... No Jonty Evans for obvious reasons.

 

Team:

  • Tipperary’s Padraig McCarthy with Mr Chunky, owned by Christopher and Sarita Perkins, Huw Lloyd and Lucy Wiegersma
  • Kildare’s Aoife Clark with Fernhill Adventure (ISH), owned by Richard Last and Aoife Clark
  • Galway’s Cathal Daniels with Rioghan Rua (ISH), owned by Margaret Kinsella
  • Meath’s Sarah Ennis with Horseware Stellor Rebound (ISH), owned by Horseware Products Ltd, Niki Potterton and Orla Ennis
  • Carlow’s Sam Watson and Horseware Ardagh Highlight (ISH), owned by Belinda Keir

Five reserves have also been named in the following order:

  • 1st  Tim Bourke with Luckaun Quality (ISH)
  • 2nd Patricia Ryan with Dunrath Eclipse (ISH)
  • 3rd Joseph Murphy with Sportsfield Othello (ISH)
  • 4th  Ciaran Glynn with November Night (ISH) (TIH)
  • 5th  Clare Abbott with Euro Prince (ISH)

 

Really, Tim Bourke & Luckaun Quality only the reserves? :( That's a hardcore Irish eventing combination that very much excels in cross-country. They are much more reliable than Clark & Fernhill Adventure and Ennis & Stellor Rebound...

 

All but one listed horses are ISH. :d

 

In any case, hopefully @OlympicIRL will be celebrating first Irish Olympic spots with this team. :cheer:
