Weekly Featured Date :: World Equestrian Games


So I know you’ve heard about it by now.  If you live anywhere within a 3 hour driving radius of the Kentucky Horse Park, you’re probably sick of hearing about it by now.

But it really is kind of a big deal. So this week’s featured date is simple- take a trip out to the Games.  Who knows, it could suck, it could be awesome.  I can’t really say.  I’m not a horse guy.  I’m not big into the Equestrian community.  But this is the Olympics of the Horse sport.  People come from all over the world for this thing.

To my knowledge, this the first time the WEG has never been hosted in the United States, and they, whomever “they” in this case is, have chosen our fair city to host it.   More than likely, in our lifetime, it will never again happen here.   And this just happens to be the last weekend of the event.

So it seems to me, with all of that in mind, regardless of how you feel about horses, this is something you probably would regret not going to see. Imagine having the opportunity to see Elvis live, or the Beatles, or for me, Michael Jackson (really wish I could have seen him live when he was in his prime), but never taking advantage of it.

The events do look pretty fun. To say the least, it will be different and fresh.  And you and your date will share some great memories.

So go for it.  Don’t know if it will be a “great” date or not, but it certainly will be a memorable date.  Which makes the WEG this week’s Weekly Featured Date.
