It always helps to see a warm and friendly face when heading to warm up for that all-important test or jump round. In this series, the United States Evening Association (USEA) is partnering with Athletux to feature those around us who help make these events happen, the volunteers. Without them horse shows and programs could not succeed, and these volunteers go above and beyond to make sure every rider feels comfortable and confident. Do you know a volunteer who should be nominated as Volunteer of the Month?

It was a tense morning at the second horse inspection as both the overnight leader, FischerRocana FST, and second-placed Nobilis 18 were held. Fortunately they both passed upon reinspection, but Paddy The Caddy wasn’t so fortunate. Three horses withdrew before the horse inspection, so 32 horses will start show jumping at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.

“It’s a four-star, there’s no question. You had to ride well. There was questions everywhere, there was plenty of places to have mistakes, but I don’t believe cross-country courses should just be tough. I think [Derek di Grazia] got the balance exactly right,” said Christopher Burton in the press conference following the conclusion of cross-country at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. The other riders joined in Burton’s praise of course designer, di Grazia, who changed things up quite a bit in his seventh year of designing.
