Rainy weather not slowing down fans at World Equestrian Games

Fans attending the World Equestrian Games Monday are having to find creative ways to stay dry because of the rain.

In the last two days, more than 35,000 people have attended the World Equestrian Games.

Thousands more are attending Monday, despite the rain.

Many people we've talked to, who are visiting from other countries, have been very complimentary of the Horse Park and Kentucky.

They say the rain wouldn't stop them from coming to the Games.

"We flew a long way to get here, and we're really excited about it," Vicki Weinert, a fan from Sydney, Australia, said.

Weinert said she's using a poncho to stay dry. As for the Horse Park, Weinert called it "gorgeous. A lot of walking, but that's not a bad thing."

A reminder, if you're planning to attend the Games, you can't bring umbrellas into the Horse Park. You'll need to use your rain jacket instead.
