We haven't even survived the 2010 Alltech FEI Games yet, but that hasn't stopped the energetic people in Wellington, Florida. According to an article in today's Palm Beach Post, Equestrian Sport Productions plans to start working on preparing a bid for the 2018 Games to be held in Wellington, Florida at the site of their Winter Equestrian Festival.
The FEI World Equestrian Games are held every four years and host the world championships of eight equestrian disciplines. In 2014, they will be held in Normandy, France. The 2010 Games, to be held in Kentucky during late September and early October, will be the first time that the Games have been hosted outside of Europe.
Watch for a formal announcement of the Wellington group's plan this weekend.
