What do WEG fans think of Kentucky?

Many fans we've talked to at the World Equestrian Games say they're happy to be there.

But what are their impressions of the Bluegrass so far?

While people from all over the country have flown in for this major event, there are also a lot of people from other countries visiting as well.

Some of those people have been to the World Equestrian Games before.

"It's wonderful," California Resident Dawn Hansen said of the Kentucky Horse Park. "Beautiful horses, great event. This place is huge. Lots to see."

"Gorgeous. A lot of walking, yes, but that's not a bad thing," Vicki Weinert, who's from Sydney, Australia, said.

"It was a bit warmer when I was here the last time, as it was yesterday and the day before, but I love it," Cees Roozemond, who's from Holland, said. "It's beautiful. The people are very friendly and it's great to be here."

For those who have been to the World Equestrian Games before, how does Lexington stack up? This is the first time the event has been held outside Europe.

"You can't compare," Hans Heinke, who's from Germany, said.

Many visitors say when it comes to the Games, it's hard to say where Lexington falls since each country handles this event so differently.

Many people tell us they're enjoying their time in the Bluegrass and what Kentucky has to offer.

"I think it's great," Mary Haddad, who's from Mexico, said. "I think it's accessible to all of us. It's beautiful. We're gonna take some tours and are enjoying the games. Beautiful setting."

Many people at the Kentucky Horse Park Monday told us they are enjoying the hospitality in Kentucky so far.

We're told more than 35,000 people attended the World Equestrian Games this weekend.
