THE PLAINS, Virginia - October, 2017 - For the third year in a row, the Washington, D.C. region will host some of the best horses and riders in the world at the Great Meadow International (GMI). This event will take place in The Plains, VA from July 6th to July 8th, 2018. GMI is the only leg of the Fédération Equestre International Nations Cup™ Eventing Series held in North America.
The 2018 GMI competition will begin with the dressage phase on Saturday morning, followed by the show jumping phase in the evening. The final phase, cross country, will be on Sunday morning. GMI offers prize money along with a world-class venue, so the entry list is expected to be star studded, giving spectators and eventing enthusiasts the opportunity to watch to some of the best competitors that the sport has to offer on their road to the World Equestrian Games.
While GMI brings out top competitors, spectator entertainment is of the highest priority. General Admission ticket holders will be treated to a variety of entertainment, including family friendly programming, multi-disciplined demonstrations, and extensive shopping. Options to spend cross country day close to the action with tailgating locations on the course are available for reservation. For attendees seeking a VIP experience, premier hospitality in the VIP tent area offers private dining options and ringside boxes.
Great Meadow has officially announced that Adequan® will return as the presenting sponsor of the 2018 Great Meadow International. Adequan® has supported Great Meadow’s efforts to provide this elite level international of competition in the U.S. since the event’s debut in 2015.
