Today's cross-country course at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event proved to be more difficult than most had imagined. Derek di Grazia's course shook up the leaderboard even more than we had anticipated after the two full days of dressage. The Teton Rails (13AB) proved to be tough, troubling quite a few riders with 20 additional penalty points.

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.

Most event horses have shoes tapped with stud-holes so that grooms/riders can screw in studs to give the horses better traction while galloping around cross-country. Max Corcoran shows us a good basic set of studs to start you off, as well as the studs that you'd see the grooms and riders at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event putting in their horses shoes for the track.

Once the horses and riders cross the finish line on cross-country, they immediately meet their team in the vet box to help cool the horse down and then the vets check the temperature, pulse and respiration. Max Corcoran walks us through the steps that are taken, and all the details of the vet box.
