I’ve been in Lexington the past few days, catching a small taste of the first-ever World Equestrian Games on American turf. The vision was grand and the actual scope even grander, not to mention the acreage of the Kentucky Horse Park!
Telling the story of a particular event is a multi-faceted task, much the same way as telling the story of your own equine business – it’s different things to different people, who have different experiences and therefore different perspectives. Whew!
The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games had significant televised coverage on NBC – that’s one perspective. Both mainstream media and equine media were there to provide coverage – more perspectives. If you’re interested, a simple Google search will turn up all kinds of information, and perspectives.
However, one resource I recommend is the WegWag blog, written by Marti McGinnis of Studio Mudio. Marti lives just outside Lexington, so she’s been here to see the lead-in and preparation, and she’s been blogging all the way through. One of the videos she did for WegWag even won an award! For an insightful, humorous look at WEG happenings, I think WegWag’s just dandy.
Hope you have a lovely week!
