Normandy, France, will host the seventh edition of the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Undoubtedly the biggest equestrian event in the world, the Games, from Aug. 23 until Sept. 7, will feature the finest athletes from over 60 nations who will compete against each other in jumping, dressage, eventing, driving, reining, vaulting, endurance and para-dressage. Now’s your chance to be a part of the competition in person!
Presented by Practical Horseman and EQUUS, the grand prize in this contest is a 10-day trip for two to 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy. It includes airfare for two on Aer Lingus to Paris, France; three nights in the beautiful town of Rouen in Northern France; seven nights near the competition’s action in Eden Park Hotel in Pont l’Eveque; tickets for the show-jumping championships (Sept. 1–7) and two days of sightseeing to Normandy Beaches and Mont St. Michel.
The second-place contest winner will receive a blanket from JT International, drawn at random at the end of the contest registration period. Ten weekly winners also will be chosen at random and will receive a three-quart feed scoop filled with Mane ‘N Tail products. Weekly winners begin now and are drawn during the contest registration period.
“If you love horses and traveling, you’ll love being part of the Normandy Games,” said Practical Horseman Editor Sandra Oliynyk. “It is inspiring to see the best riders and horses in the world competing and to do so against the backdrop of a beautiful region with centuries of horse breeding and competition history will make the experience even more memorable.”
The contest is now open and will close on March 31, 2014. For more information and to enter go to www.PracticalHorsemanMag.com/NormandyTravelSweepstakes.
