The World Is Coming to Us

In case you haven't already heard, Lexington, KY, our fair city, is the host of the 2010 World Equestrian Games (aka WEG).

Here are some brief facts about the games and a couple of websites that have even more information for you. The majority of this information was gathered from the World Equestrian Games event site.

-The first World Equestrian Games were held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1990.
-This is the first time in the history of the games that a non-European country has hosted the games.
-You often see the abbreviation FEI on the logo for the World Equestrian Games. FEI stands for Federation Equestre Internationale, and you can find out more about the FEI here.

For more information on what events are occurring locally to celebrate the games and how the games will impact the Lexington area, click here.

Whether or not you attend the games, you may encounter visitors at restaurants, malls, or on the road. Let's take this opportunity to show the world how much the great state of Kentucky has to offer.
