At the Tryon Equestrian Center, athletes will compete in jumping, dressage, eventing, driving, reining, vaulting and endurance events. However, the games will also feature additional exhibitions and demonstrations. Hosting the event at the Tryon International Equestrian Center will be the second time in history that the games have taken place in the United States.
