This year’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI5*-L was on April 21-25 and was the first five-star event to take place in the U.S. since 2019. The entry list had the best riders in the world, previous Kentucky champions, Olympic hopefuls, and horses who have been eventing in the U.S. since they were 4 years old.
“This individual is all quality being full Thoroughbred,” Chris Ryan first observed about this 5-year-old off-the-track Thoroughbred gelding. “Some carry more refinement than others and this fellow is quite fine. He is short coupled. And, he is a lovely strong colour!”
It was another year of growth for the USEA Young Event Horse Program (YEH) in 2011. The USEA YEH East Coast Championships were in their seventh year and were held at Fair Hill International in Elkton, Maryland. The USEA YEH West Coast Championships were in their third year and were held at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, California. The results from the two championships correctly predicted the outcome for the future stars of the sport. Four out of the top six finishers on the East Coast, and two out of the top three finishers on the West Coast went on to compete at the highest levels of eventing.
