FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) were held outside Europe, for the first time, in 2010 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, the Horse Capital of the World.

More than 1,000 athletes representing 50 countries participated. The FEI World Equestrian Games was broadcast live from the Kentucky Horse Park to 40 countries and reported by more than 1,000 international media.

The WEG included the world championships for seven equestrian sports: show jumping, dressage, eventing, driving, endurance, vaulting and reining. Held every four years, in the middle of the Olympic cycle, the World Equestrian Games are governed by the FEI, based in Lausanne, Switzerland and recognized by the International Olympic Committee.

“This was the first time that the FEI World Equestrian Games were staged at a single venue,” says John Nicholson, executive director of the Kentucky Horse Park. “That's because there isn't another site in the world that has the facilities that are available here.”

Lexington's Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm/theme park and equine competition facility dedicated to man's relationship with the horse.
