Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games | The spirit of showjumping
Friday, 05 September 2014
It is the World Equestrian Games and it is the final day of the team competition. The teams and riders will compete for medals, for a qualification for the next Olympic Games and for a good place on the individual ranking. Despite the pressure to succeed both indivually and as a team, even the championship course walks show how the riders and trainers help each other regardless of their nationality.
