Tryon (NC, USA) / Saint-Imier (Switzerland), 17 September 2018 – As the Official Partner, Timekeeper and Watch of the FEI World Equestrian GamesTM Tryon 2018, currently taking place in North Carolina, Longines is thrilled to be part of this year’s event, hosting 349 athletes from 54 countries. The first week saw some spectacular contests and victories in the disciplines of Dressage, Eventing and Reining – the Endurance ride having been cancelled due to extreme weather conditions potentially dangerous for the horses’ welfare. The spectators of this unique equestrian rendezvous notably saw the victory of Team Germany, who earned first place in the Dressage Team competition held on Thursday. On Friday, German rider Isabell Werth on Bella Rose won the individual Dressage title. In Reining, the team competition was won by Team USA, while the individual was claimed by Bernard Fonck (BEL) on What a Wave. Finally, the discipline of Eventing saw the victory of Great Britain’s representatives both in team and individually with the win of Rosalind Canter and Allstar B.
