The Day of the African Equestrian - Cocktail Reception
A twilight reception celebrating the participation of horses, riders, coaches and supporters from Africa in the 2018 Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) World Equestrian Games (WEG) will serve as the centerpiece of social activities scheduled during the thirteen days of competition at North Carolina's Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Popular singer/songwriter Katrina "Kat" Williams (an America's Got Talent finalist) and her trio will provide entertainment.

A delegation representing the African Confederation of Equestrian Sports (ACES) will be honored guests at the gala  whose focus celebrates contributions to equestrian knowledge, history, sport and tradition made by residents of African nations - as well as by persons of African heritage living in Europe, Asia, the Americas and throughout the world.

National Federations governing equestrian sport in twenty (20) African nations are currently members of the FEI and ACES. The FEI's oldest African affiliate is the Egyptian Equestrian Federation, which joined in 1946. The most recent African affiliate is Angolas Federação Angolana de Desporto Equestre, which was accepted into membership in 2014.

[PLEASE NOTE: Originally scheduled for Sunday Evening, September 16, the reception has been rescheduled due to safety concerns created by Hurricane Florence.]

Attire: Semiformal or National Costume


The Day of the African Equestrian will benefit Africa focused charitable and educational institutions including Africare and the Focus on Africa (FOA) program at Merrill College - one of ten residential colleges at the University of California, Santa Cruz(UCSC).

Funds raised for Merrill College during the FEI World Equestrian Games will support students requiring financial
assistance for travel to and from Africa during the 2018/2019 academic year.
