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!

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything, it was an amazing experience.” Twenty-five years ago, Kerry Millikin and her off-the-track Thoroughbred gelding, Out and About (who was only 8 years old at the time) won the individual Olympic bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, making her one of five females to have earned an individual Olympic medal for the U.S.
