WEG Picks Up Another Sponsor
By Bryan Bartlett
Lexington, KY – Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear was on hand at the Kentucky Horse Park Friday to announce that John Deere is the "Official Equipment Sponsor" of the 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games. Beshear says the farm equipment company will provide a variety of grounds care equipment to be used during the event, some of which will remain onsite for use even after the games are over.
The 2010 games will mark the first time the championships have been held outside of Europe. The event is expected to have a statewide economic impact of $150 million dollars.
