World Equestrian Games features John Deere Place

Posted by Green Fun Store on 9/29/2010
John Deere announced it opened an area within the sponsor village at Kentucky Horse Park for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

The experience area, John Deere Place, will give those attending the games a chance at riding a trained reining horse. People will also be able to get a professional photograph of them sitting on a favorite piece of equipment produced by the company.

"John Deere is proud to host an interactive and educational equine experience for all attendees of the World Equestrian Games," said Roch Dold, John Deere Ag & Turf National Sales.

The World Equestrian Games last through October 10 and feature a number of riding competitions. The U.S. Reining Team opened the week by winning a team gold medal at the event. This is the third time in a row the American team placed first in this leg of the competition.

This is the first time the World Equestrian Games have been held in the U.S. Furthermore, this is the first time in the event's history that all eight competition disciplines will take place at a single site.
