The 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will feature eight world championships in equestrian sport and are being held for the first time in the United States from September 25-October 10 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. As the Official Luxury Automobile of the 2010 Games, Land Rover will be displaying its sport utility vehicles in several areas on the Kentucky Horse Park. In addition to having vehicles in the Outdoor Stadium and on the Eventing Cross-Country course, Land Rover will host the Land Rover Test Drive Experience for guests to try out the superior off-road capabilities of a Land Rover. 'We are very excited to announce Land Rover's sponsorship of the 2010 Games,' said Terry Johnson, vice president of marketing and sales for the Foundation. 'The vehicles are world-renowned for superior performance and style, and their sponsorship is a perfect fit for this world-class event. Eventing as a sport requires a skill level combining power, control, elegance and capability; all the traits we feel are represented in the interior refinements and performance characteristics of our Land Rovers and Range Rovers,' said Chris Marchand, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Land Rover North America. He continued, 'Equestrian enthusiasts tend to enjoy outdoor sports and activities and supporting an event where visitors not only will enjoy the beauty of the Kentucky Horse Park, but will witness world class competition makes this relationship a natural fit for Land Rover.'
Land Rover is also the Official Vehicle of the United States Equestrian Federation and is the title sponsor of the 2010 United States Eventing Team. Land Rover has supported equestrian sport in the UK since the early 1990s, supporting the show jumping and eventing communities and has recently announced it will be the official vehicle supplier to the Equestrian Team GBR, which underpins Land Rover support of U.K. equestrian sport.
