With the drive to try something new, the help of diligent trainers, the unwavering support of her mother and the willingness of her stunning reining mare, it became possible.

Cross-country day at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by Land Rover is one of the most anticipated days of the year for eventing enthusiasts, and the 2017 edition did not disappoint. As top horses and riders fell prey to Derek di Grazia’s unrelenting track this year, the boldest and fastest combinations nimbly climbed the ranks. Even the defending champion Michael Jung picked up 1.6 time penalties, but it was enough to sit him squarely in the lead with Brigitte and Joachim Jung’s FischerRocana FST.
