Friday, August 23, 2013 marked a symbolic date for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy since the count-down displayed "D-365" before the start of the event! To celebrate this important time, the Organizing Committee wanted to highlight the key moments which marked the preparation of the largest equestrian event in the world.
