A Hylofit USEA Classic Series Event is the perfect way to cap off a successful season. For a first-time classic-format competitor, the prospect of competing can be daunting. However, with a few pointers and tips, they can be easy to navigate.
The Hagyard MidSouth Three-Day Event and Team Challenge Horse Trials is held once yearly in mid-October at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky (Area VIII) and offers horse trials for Beginner Novice through Preliminary level in addition to Hylofit USEA Classic Series Training and Preliminary Three-Day and CCI* divisions.
There is no doubt that most eventers are well-organized and travel to events with most everything they need. But a classic series long format event is a little different. Your preparation will start much earlier with the conditioning that must take place and you will be likely be staying at the venue several days longer than you would for a regular horse trial.
