NBC Sports will broadcast nearly 65 hours of coverage from the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, including 57 live hours, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 12, from Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina.

All the action will also stream live on FEI TV and can be viewed anywhere in the world. For eventing fans in the U.S., NBC will air cross country and show jumping live, but not dressage. If you want to watch both days of eventing dressage live, you will need to be an FEI TV subscriber.

The competition schedule for eventing at WEG is:

  • Thursday, Sept. 13: Dressage from 9 a.m.-4:40 p.m. EST
  • Friday, Sept. 14: Dressage from 9 a.m.-4:40 p.m. EST
  • Saturday, Sept 15: Cross country from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. EST
