The FEI has just announced that show jumping for the eventing competition at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games has been postponed to Monday, Sept. 17.

“The latest weather forecast from the National Weather Service, which has an onsite weather station here at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), shows heavy rain starting on Saturday evening through Sunday. As a result, it is planned to move the final Jumping phase for Eventing to Monday 17 September (starting time to be confirmed).”

Cross country will still start at 11 a.m. EST tomorrow, with the interval between horses reduced from four to three minutes. The course length will remain the full 5,700-meter length, but two fences will be removed from the course: the double brush at fence 23A and the fruit stand at fence 24B.

EN is waiting for confirmation on the schedule for the final horse inspection.

Keep it locked on EN for further updates.
