In July of 2016, Bromont pulled out from hosting the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) and in November the FEI announced the Tryon International Equestrian Center as the new hosts. This timeline gave Tryon less than two years to pull together what will be the fourth largest sporting event in the world in 2018. The Mill Spring, N.C. facility is now under construction around the clock, but that didn’t stop them from hosting the WEG Eventing Test Event in the first week of April.

It’s evident the speed, the stamina, the brain, the strength, and the heart of a Thoroughbred are promising qualities to have in a potential event horse.

This year the governing body of equestrian sports, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), is going to increase testing of the human athletes in preparation for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina. While the well-being of the horses is always top priority, and it is well established what a controlled substance is for a horse, the same rules are not as well understood for riders. Why is it important for riders to understand and obey human drug rules?
