A total of 32 horses were presented in front of the CCI5*-L Ground Jury at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian, and 32 out of the 30 horses will move forward to show jumping. Five horses were sent to the holding box and after representing, AP Prime and K.E.C. Zara were unfortunately not accepted. The other three horses who were sent to the holding box, Jollybo, Covert Rights, and Chico’s Man VDF Z were accepted after they represented.

The American-bred Trakehner, Tsetserleg TSF only looked slightly embarrassed by his rider Boyd Martin who was sporting an American flag suit at the final horse inspection, and after presenting in front of the Ground Jury, the leading American pair were both accepted. Tsetserleg TSF (Windfall x Thabana) is a 15-year-old American bred Trakehner gelding owned by Christine, TJ, and Tommie Turner and bred by Timothy Holekamp and sits in second place, behind Michael Jung, going into show jumping.

The CCI5*-L horses were presented in front of the ground jury of Nick Burton (GBR), Gretchen Butts (USA), Christian Steiner (AUT), and the FEI Veterinary Delegate, Karen Nyrop, DVM (USA).

The best turned-out awards were presented after the final horse inspection. The CCI4*-S best turned out was awarded to William Coleman’s groom, Erin Jarboe. The CCI5*-L best turned out was awarded to Hannah Sue Burnett’s two grooms, Ashley Kapinos and Katherine Marko.

In the CCI4*-S, there were 30 horses that presented in front of the CCI4*-S Ground Jury of Peter Gray (CAN) and Bea di Grazia (USA) and the FEI Veterinary Delegate, Karen Nyrop, DVM (USA). One horse withdrew, Moonlight Crush, after being sent to the holding box. All other 29 were accepted.

Show jumping will resume at 11:00 a.m. EST with the CCI4*-S going first, and the CCI5*-L will start at 2:30 p.m. Both divisions will run in reverse order of placing.

Now On Course: Woodrow Goes Wild to Mild

Did you know that there are over 53,000 wild mustangs in holding facilities across the United States? My mustang journey began in February 2018 after losing my heart horse whom I had just shy of 20 years. I wanted another horse of color, and my friend sent me the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) internet adoption link. I was amazed at all of the horses available on the internet auction, but I quickly fell in love with Woodrow. I learned that he was a popular band stallion in Wyoming and had been followed by photographers for close to three years.
