Will you be attending the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event (LKR3DE)? Then be sure not to miss out on the many educational opportunities being offered by LandSafe! LandSafe has teamed up with the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) and Event Riders Association of North America (ERA of NA) to bring you The Education Tent.
Top riders, grooms, and horsemen will be offering free lectures and demonstrations on a variety of topics, including why an ICP instructor is for you! Equine topics will range from preparing for dressage to cross-country aftercare. There will also be discussions on leading safety products, signings from top riders, and a Q and A session after cross-country on Saturday. There will be something going on at The Education Tent every hour of every day! Stop by to get your picture taken on the LandSafe simulator which will show you dropping into the Head of the Lake.
The Education Tent is designed as an outreach program for parents and riders to have a place to go to get information from top equestrians/trainers. The Education Tent will be located with 'The Hill' vendors directly off of Nina Bonnie Lane in between the Rolex stadium and cross-country course.
In addition to all of the activities taking place in The Education Tent all weekend long, LandSafe is offering a clinic during LRK3DE! The clinic will take place Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. To sign up for the LandSafe clinic, click here. Don’t forget that LandSafe has rebates available for current USEA members through the generosity of the USEA Education Grant!

Many riders across all levels have found that working with young horses has provided them with the most valuable experiences in eventing. The opportunities for young event horses have never been more exciting. The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse East Coast and West Coast Championships continue to grow in profile as the culmination of a calendar of qualifying events is expanding to more areas of the country. More American riders and their young horses are aiming for the FEI WBFSH Eventing World Breeding Championships at Mondial du Lion in Le Lion D’Angers, France, particularly thanks to programs like the Holekamp/Turner YEH Lion d’Angers Grant. That’s become one of the most attended sporting events in the entire country. It’s given young event horses from the United States a chance to represent the growth of the American eventing community’s dedication to properly developing talent in the sport.
