Alltech FEI WEG 2014 Normandy - Eventing

William Fox-Pitt

William Fox-Pitt's smile shows his delight at currently leading the dressage phase on Chilli Morning but the main topics of conversation around the (muddy) tracks are the cross country course and wet weather at Le Pin

Come for a look behind the scenes at the eventing venue for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games to check out the warm-up areas, vet area and even a saddler on hand for those last minute repairs

Although the grounds at Le Haras du Pin, the venue for the eventing at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, may be a bit soggy after the past two days’ rain, the runway in front of the Chateau was perfectly groomed and solid for the all important first horse inspection

Of course one of the most important times of day in France is lunch time - so where are the WEG specatators, riders and officials heading to eat around the main stadium in Caen?

It was a breathtaking start to the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games as the Opening Ceremony celebrated the Nations, the athletes and, of course, the horse in a dramatic show of sound and light

The only horse in sight at Le Pin today was one taking tourists for a carriage drive but there is plenty of activity on site as preparations for the eventing are in full swing

With less than a week to go until competition commences, the Australian Eventing team are fit and raring to go. Emily Penney has a quick chat with the team members at training camp in the UK

Michael Jung and La Biosthetique Sam FBW may be out of WEG but there are still plenty of riders and teams who are hoping to make it onto the podium
