We are 201 days away from the first horse inspection on Sept. 12 at the 2018 World Equestrian Games at Tryon International Equestrian Center. A total of 52 U.S. combinations have already qualified for WEG since the qualifying period began on Jan. 1, 2017.

To qualify for WEG, U.S. combinations must achieve an MER (Minimum Eligibility Requirement) at one CCI4* or one CCI3* and CI3*. Horses and riders must qualify as a pair. A qualifying score must have:

  • A score of 45.0 or better in dressage (all scores from 2017 of 65.0 or better will count retroactively following the removal of the coefficient)
  • No cross country jumping penalties (one frangible device can be activated)
  • No more than 75 seconds over the optimum time at three-star level and no more than 100 seconds over the time at four-star level
  • No more than four rails in show jumping

For pairs who still need a CCI to qualify, the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event on April 26-29 will offer the first opportunity to do so. For pairs still need a CIC3*, Red Hills will provide the first opportunity in the U.S. on March 8-11.

Kentucky CCI4* is also the first of seven remaining selection trials for the U.S. WEG team:

  • Kentucky CCI4* April 26-29
  • Badminton CCI4* (GBR) May 3-6
  • Jersey Fresh CCI3* May 10-13
  • Tattersalls CCI3* (IRE) May 30-June 3
  • Bramham CCI3* (GBR) June 7-10
  • Bromont CCI3* (CAN) June 7-10
  • Luhmühlen (GER) June 14-17

The U.S. WEG team is expected to be named the week after Luhmühlen. Nominated entries must be submitted to the FEI by Aug. 13. Definite entries are due to the FEI on Sept. 3.

The U.S. Eventing Selection Procedures and related documents are available on the USEF website.
