Captain Mark Phillips got it right when he said, “The sport of eventing had a wonderful day." Eighty-one riders representing 23 countries set forth on Phillips’ championship course this morning for the cross-country portion of the eventing world championship at the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina. Clean rides inside the time were the ticket to the top of the leaderboard today as tightly-packed dressage scores meant that even a few seconds over the optimum caused a significant shift in the placings.

The FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina have brought together over 800 equestrian athletes and 860 horses from 71 different countries to compete in eight different disciplines in the only event of its kind in the world. The volunteers it requires to stage an event like the WEG are numbered in the thousands, with hundreds of different roles that many equestrians don’t typically think of when they think of horse show volunteers.

When several hundred thousand people come together for an event that lasts two weeks there are tons of logistics to be figured out and none is more important than that of keeping the people safe and having medical treatment available in case of an emergency – whether it be big or small. The person in charge of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) medical plan is Dr. Mark Hart who volunteered for the role of Chief Medical Officer for the entirety of the Games.
