The World Games of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, reining, vaulting and para-dressage are staged only once every four years and are being held for only the second time in the United States since the world championships of international horse sports were combined in 1990.

Sales of tickets began as truck loads of steel and other building materials began pouring into the Tryon International Equestrian Center to complete construction of facilities to handle crowds projected to total about 500,000 to watch an estimated 1,000 horses and athletes from about 70 nations.

More than 1,200 permanent horse stalls are already completed. The layout of the show grounds puts the stalls within just a few hundreds yards/meters of warmup rings that are adjacent to the WEG competition arenas.

However, the main arena for 20,000 spectators for dressage. jumping and eventing show jumping is still to be built–not unusual for Olympic and WEG temporary arenas and footing.
