WELLINGTON, Florida, Mar. 13 - Palm Beach International Equestrian Center that stages the world's largest and longest running horse show announced Saturday that it will bid for the 2018 World Equestrian Games.
The bid for one of the world's largest sporting events that is held every four years will be made by Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP).
ESP owns and operates the 150-acre (60ha) PBIEC show grounds whose centerpiece event is the Winter Equestrian Festival that draws more than 2,000 horses from more than 30 countries during each of its 12 weeks.
Michael Stone, former secretary general of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and current president of ESP, will head up the Palm Beach organizing committee. He has been involved in every WEG since the inaugural event in Stockholm in 1990.
Work on the formal application will begin this year to insure completion well before the deadline of 2013 for the naming of the WEG in 2018.
