Fundraising Effort Launched to Save the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Five-Star

By USEA

Following the announcement of the cancellation of the CCI5* at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian™ (LRK3DE) a fundraising campaign has been launched in an effort to save the 2021 event.

"You have supported and sustained Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI) since 1978," announced the LRK3DE. "The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is loved by many. Without spectators, the financial requirements to host the CCI5*-L are too great for our organization after a year without income.

In order to change course and run the LRK3DE 5*-L in 2021, financial support and donations are needed NOW! $750,000 must be raised by 11:59 PM on Sunday, February 7!

While not covering all expenses, these funds will provide EEI with enough resources to begin making plans for the CCI5*-L at the ‘Best Weekend All Year!’

Those that donate will be recognized by EEI in some fashion, with those donating in excess of $500+ being provided an early ticket-purchase opportunity for the 2022 event!"

Tax-deductible donations can be made directly on the LRK3DE website by clicking here.
