Life After Racing > Off the Track Standardbreds  > World Equestrian Games

In the fall of 2010, eight Standardbreds travelled to the Alltech F.E.I. World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY to demonstrate how Standardbreds excel at disciplines such as Combined Driving, Dressage, Hunter Under Saddle, Jumping, Pleasure Driving and Western Pleasure. The demonstration was coordinated by the USTA and the Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization of Florida (SPHO-FL).
