Definite entries for the five disciplines of Dressage, Para-Dressage, Reining, Endurance and Eventing, which take place over the first week of competition at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy, have now been finalised. 

The number of entries break the previous participation records. Dressage, Endurance, and Reining have all increased from the record numbers set for these disciplines at the FEI World Equestrian Games 2006 in Aachen (GER), while Para-Dressage and Eventing have gone up from their previous high at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010 in Lexington, Kentucky.

The deadline for the definite entries in the three disciplines which run during the second week of the Games – Jumping, Driving, and Vaulting – is August 21.

The new FEI Athlete Biographies page now has a special filter which only shows the athletes named in the definite entries for Dressage, Para-Dressage, Eventing, Endurance, and Reining. It will be updated on August 22 to include the athletes named in the definite entries for the three remaining disciplines.
