Outstanding teams of horses and riders are set to compete at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games™ Eventing championships...
With medal favourite Michael Jung having withdrawn, the competition is now wide open.
Jung will be absent as his mare FischerRocana FST is not sound. He won individual silver at WEG 2014 with the same mare. The outlook of the competition has changed completely without him. The former world, European and Olympic champion was always the one to beat.
Ingrid Klimke and SAP Hale Bob are a formidable partnership and not to be dismissed lightly. Their strength is cross country and the Captain Mark Phillips’ designed course will suit them well.
Germany are reigning team and individual champions. Sandra Auffarth will now be in Tryon, having originally dropped out, to defend her title as she was the reserve rider for Jung.
