I know this is Eventing Nation, (Jumper Nation is over here) but holy smokes, who else caught the WEG team jumping finale yesterday? Spoiler alert: Team USA clinched gold in a jump-off and it was hella exciting!
Don’t worry though: our portion of the WEG may be over, but eventers still have an exciting weekend ahead with Planation Field CIC3* live streaming and our very own Jenni Autry behind the mic. (Not to mention the SEVEN sanctioned horse trials plus East Coast FEH Championships happening this weekend!)
Plus, if you want to get into something a little different but kind of similar, combined driving is happening at the WEG right now with the marathon phase (the driving equivalent of cross country) happening today from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. EST. It’s pretty cool!

Well…we’ll be watching this EPIC finale again and again for a long time. It all came down to the most electrifying Jump-Off we have ever seen at the FEI World Equestrian Games. But when put to the sword, it was Team USA who came through a nail-biting finish and overcame a very strong Swedish team. Huge congratulations to Team USA – that was incredible!🥇 US Equestrian / 🇺🇸🥈 Svenska Ridsportförbundet – Officiell sida 🇸🇪🥉 Deutsche Reiterliche Vereinigung e.V. (FN) 🇩🇪
