Genuine Risk: The Nature of Promises

Posted on 4 min read 95 views

We have barely a month left in 2018, and I’d promised myself I would finish my mystery novel by the end of the year–so, no blogging, Rhonda!–but I feel compelled to write about what I’d held as a private memory of a moment paying my respects to Genuine Risk.

This look back began on Black Friday 2018, when a racing photographer I follow on Facebook posted condolences regarding the passing of a Virginia horsemen I’d met during that Virginia Hunt Country Stable Tour I took in 2009.

Watching the 2018 World Equestrian Games at Home

The World Equestrian Games is returning to the US to Tryon, NC, on Sept. 10 – 23.

We can watch some of the action from the comfort of our homes. Even though Tryon is inland to the west, kind of between Charlotte and Asheville, I hope Hurricane Florence restrains her enthusiasm when she barges on into the MidAtlantic and Carolina coast. #BeSafe

The Schedule

 

Most of the action we can watch on our digital devices will be on NBC Sports Network (cable), the Olympic Channel (online and see below), and on your regular NBC affiliate but only for the show jumping on Sept. 23. The FEI live stream starts on Sept. 11.

The Asheville Citizen-Times , you need to click on the link and scroll all the way down to see the schedule, has the most comprehensive listings.

BTW, the Olympic Channel is online streaming, apparently free if you have cable. I could be wrong about that.

FEI TV will stream events live and has a special WEG package under $30US.

If I’ve left anything out or you find new information, please let me know. Thanks!
