From September 25 through October 10, the eyes of the equestrian world will be on Lexington, Kentucky and the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Hundreds of the world’s top horses and their riders will converge on the Kentucky Horse Park to compete in the world championships of eight equestrian disciplines. And Team SUCCEED® wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Besides booths where you can come chat equine nutrition and the benefits of SUCCEE®D with us, we’ll be involved in the opening ceremonies, Arabian breed demonstrations, and even raffling off a beautiful Arabian gelding. Here are all the details about where and how you can find us at the World Equestrian Games. We’d love to meet you, so be sure to stop by and say hello.
