LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Feb. 17–Dressage spectators at the World Equestrian Games will be able to listen to commentary by trainer and commentator Kathy Connelly on “World Equestrian Radio,” a personal radio service complete with a souvenir radio receiver.

The radio receivers costing US$45 (€33) can be pre-ordered at www.weg2010store.com/woeqra.html. The pre-purchased receivers can be picked up when spectators arrive at the Kentucky Horse Park for the 2010 Games. A limited number of units will also be available for purchase on site during the event.

The price includes expert commentary for Vaulting, Dressage, Reining, Eventing Dressage and Eventing Jumping, Driving Dressage and Para-Dressage. Commentators include:

· Dressage—Kathy Connelly, trainer and commentator;
· Eventing—Jean Mitchell, former FEI judge and commentator; Betsy Steiner, 1990 WEG dressage rider;
· Vaulting—Nancy Stevens Brown, trainer, coach, commentator, and
· Reining— Rick Weaver, Current NRHA President, past Futurity winner

“World Equestrian Radio will give spectators the opportunity to hear the competition from an insider’s perspective,” said Kate Jackson, Vice President of Competitions for the WEG 2010 Foundation. “It will essentially be like attending a private clinic on the discipline and is also a great way for non-equestrians to learn more about what they are watching.”

Before the events and during breaks the listener will receive updates from the other disciplines as well as event information.

World Equestrian Radio service providers are Speakeasy, LTD and Flight Line Radio.
