Celebrated every four years and alternating with the Olympic Games, the World Equestrian Games are undoubtedly the biggest equestrian event in the world. The finest athletes from 76 nations will compete against each other in the 8 official Fédération Equestre Internationale disciplines:

  • Jumping
  • Dressage
  • Eventing
  • Driving
  • Reining
  • Vaulting
  • Endurance
  • Para-Dressage

Three of those are Olympic disciplines (Jumping, Dressage, and Eventing) with Para-Dressage being represented at the Paralympics. Horse riding is the only Olympic and Paralympic sport to have both sexes competing in the same competition and where the athlete and horse both receive medals.
