The Sunday morning horse inspection at the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event was the most seamless horse inspection the crowds in Lexington, Ky. have seen before. All 31 horses that completed cross-country yesterday showed up to present this morning, and all of them were accepted.

The Ground Jury of Christina Klingspor (SWE), Martin Plewa (GER) and Mark Weissbecker (USA) accompanied by Dr. Karen Nyrop saw 31 healthy and happy horses this morning, and they didn’t need a second look at any of them. None of the horses were asked to represent, none of them were sent to the hold box, nor were any of them spun. The grooms, riders and their full teams took exceptional care of the horses that came off of the grueling CCI5*-L cross-country course yesterday, showing a true test of horsemanship.

It takes a village to keep these horses healthy and sound at the top level of the sport, and the announcer asked the crowds to give a round of applause to the grooms and teams for turning out such strong and healthy horses this morning.

Richard Jeffery’s show jumping course will be open for riders to walk at 11:00 a.m. this morning, followed by opening ceremonies at noon. The first rider will enter the arena at 1:00 p.m. and riders will jump in reverse order of their current placing, leaving Boyd Martin and Oliver Townend to jump last in the Rolex Arena. It will be an exciting finale to a great weekend of horse sport, with no room for a rail at the top placings. Click here to follow along with show jumping.
