    We have to inform you that fish Mr. Ocana has drawn up a compression of the tie head on the left. According to vet, it's a little injury, but it needs your time. This time is too short until departure, and we could not take the last training sessions. That's why we need to waive a start in tryon.


    Since 2009, I have been on the German team every year and has been able to achieve a einzelmedaille every year Rocana and I were ready to represent the German colors worthy, but unfortunately it shouldn't be.
    I wish the German team all the best, success and much joy!

    Sam Griffiths has withdrawn Paulank Brockagh from the Australian eventing squad for the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Tryon (11-23 September).

    "'Brocks' sustained a minor injury in her final preparations and will not be fit to travel," said Sam.

    "She will recuperate and then be prepared for Badminton 2019. Sam and Team Griffiths wish the Australian eventing team the very best of luck."

    The withdrawal of the 2014 Badminton winner will be a serious blow for the Australians as Sam and Brocks were likely to be one of their strongest combinations. They finished fourth individually at the 2016 Rio Olympics and were 16th at the 2014 WEG in Caen, France.


    Emma McNab has been called up to replace Sam on the squad, riding 10-year-old Fernhill Tabasco, an Irish Sport Horse by Tabasco Van Erpekom. The pair were ninth at Pau last yearhttps://www.horseandhound.co.uk/news...3OvEWzE7TrD.99

        Bummed about Michael. I do like Sandra Aaufarth though, or " little Ingred" as Mr Kc refers to her.

              Hello! I'm a total newbie here but have been reading the forums for a little while, hope it's ok for me to just jump on in. I'm coming to WEG from the UK to volunteer and cannot wait! It's my second WEG and I have great hopes that this will be better than the absolute car crash that was Normandy...

              Gutted about the withdrawals - and Laura Collett has withdrawn Mr Bass from Burghley too. It's horses, totally get that, but it doesn't feel like a championship with no Michael Jung

                I hope you are right about the 70's, but I suspect it is more likely to be in the 80's - September usually still feels like summer!

                I'm counting on FEItv for my WEG eventing fix, and hoping they have all the kinks worked out at the venue by the time show jumping rolls around!

                  Very Cool! You'll have to update us as you're there!

                    Current forecast is for mid70s with some showers. It's 10 days out, and it could all change, but a general cooling trend is forecast locally. Fingers crossed!

                                  I live just down the road from TIEC/WEG. Weather here is still hot and humid and I don't think it will change too much. It may cool down some, but that will likely come with rain.

                                      Definite entries for eventing at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games closed yesterday, and we now have a final look at the horses and riders set to compete at Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill

                                        Final list is here: https://inside.fei.org/system/files/...s_Eventing.pdf

                                        My bet: No one. I don't think you'll see total domination from any team this year. There are many areas of weakness where we have seen strength in the past: the French team is down several key combinations from Rio (they will really feel the loss of Piaf and Qalao, IMO, though the latter wasn't actually at Rio), Germany is obviously short a super-player, Australia isn't particularly deep and is down a four-star winner, Ireland is missing some strength due to injury (both horse and human), heck, even China is missing a top ten finisher from Rio. For me, it's anyone's game.

                                        However, since you asked, for individual medals I like (not necessarily in this order):

                                        1. Ingrid Klimke, SAP Hale Bob OLD. All the talent and a fire burning under it after some blips the last few years.
                                        2. Piggy French, Quarrycrest Echo. Lots to prove and the ability to support it. Backed by, IMO, the best program in the world.
                                        3. Chris Burton, Cooley Lands. Fast, precise, and we've underestimated Chris on the young ones before. I won't again.

                                        Dark horse: Tom McEwen, Toledo de Kerser. These two tend to fly under the radar, but I think that ends now. Probably the best show jumper in the field, and coming out of the GB program. Dressage may hold them back, but I doubt that will matter much.
                                        Most fun to watch: Cathal Daniels, Rioghan Rua. Pint sized best friends who are gonna show the world!

                                        Team medals (not necessarily in this order):

                                        1. Great Britain. The deepest country in the field and the best program in the world, according to me. Good luck trying to catch them.
                                        2. New Zealand. The LEAST decorated member of this team (not counting Dan, who I assume is the individual) has won two four stars this year. Not a hard call.
                                        3. Germany. I mean, I'm not crazy. I don't think it'll go their way but I don't think you could knock them entirely off the podium.

                                        Dark horse: Ireland. Much cross country strength here. If something goes really wrong for a big gun, they will be waiting in the wings.
