FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG)

One of the major international championships for equestrianism is the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG). It is organized by the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI).

This equestrian championship is held every four years, halfway among sets of successive Summer Olympic Games since 1990. Prior to then, all ten of the FEI’s individual disciplines held split championships usually in different countries.

The new WEG runs for two weeks and locations rotate to different parts of the world.

WEG competitors go through a painstaking selection process and each country involved send teams that distinguish themselves as the country’s best in each particular discipline.

The WEG disciplines expanded throughout the years, including eight new disciplines – combined Driving, Vaulting, Dressage, Show Jumping, Endurance Riding, Reigning, Eventing ad Para equestrianism. Two remaining regional disciplines of the FEI include Horse Ball and Tent Pegging.
