Wrapping up the FEI World Equestrian Games 2018 (WEG) with this fourth report, it’s been almost two weeks of ups and downs and bumps in the road, starting with Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Tryon International Equestrian Center as the 13-day event began on September 11. And just this past weekend, Canadian para-dressage rider, Lauren Barwick, faced a bump in her own road to excellence. Her nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Engelbrecht, knocked himself and, as a result, the pair withdrew from the Grade III Freestyle test on Saturday, September 22. He is currently receiving veterinary care and is expected to fully recover for future competitions.
