MILL SPRING, North Carolina, Feb. 20, 2018–A CDI3* international dressage competition has been scheduled in the lineup of all eight World Equestrian Games disciplines to be staged at Tryon International Equestrian Center ahead of the global championships in September.

Tryon Spring dressage of a CDI3*, para-dressage CPEDI3* along with a dressage national show is scheduled for April 19-22, in the pre-World Games calendar that also includes jumping, eventing, endurance, driving, reining and vaulting.

The April CDI and para-dressage show will also be a WEG event to test the infrastructure and organization of dressage for the world championships. Tryon summer dressage at national level is scheduled for June 15-17.

This will be the first time in the history of the combined world championships begun in 1990 that all eight disciplines can compete in advance at the venue where the WEG will be staged in September.

The CDI dressage competition is on the calendar for three weeks after conclusion of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida, a 10-hour drive away.

Even before staging the championships of the eight international horse sports held once every four years, Tryon International Equestrian Center has become a major center of equestrian competitions with 40 weeks of multi discipline competitions with more than 2,300 riders from 31 countries in 2017.

The Tryon center, that provides lodging for both riders and horses on-site, featured two international dressage competitions in both 2016 and 2017.
