With April just a day away, it’s time for full fledged prep mode for the 2022 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. Official entries were announced this morning with a total of 57 horse and rider pairs representing seven different countries slated to compete. View the entire list of five-star entries here. The entries for the CCI4*-S can be seen here.

The list is full of top performers including Olympians and former Kentucky winners, but three-time consecutive champion from 2018, 2019, and 2021 Oliver Townend does not have an entry so the title is up for grabs this year. There are three returning Kentucky champions slated to compete this year including both Rolex Grand Slam Winners: Michael Jung who won the event three times in a row from 2015 to 2017, Phillip Dutton the 2008 winner, and Pippa Funnell who was crowned champion in 2003. Last year’s National Champion and the winner of the inaugural Maryland 5 Star, Christine, Thomas, and Tommie Turner's 16-year-old Anglo Arab mare On Cue (Cabri D'elle x On High) ridden by Boyd Martin is set to compete, in addition to Martin’s Olympic mount the 15-year-old Trakehner gelding Tsetserleg TSF (Windfall 2 x Thabana) also owned by Christine, Thomas, and Tommie Turner.

Five U.S. riders are hoping to take on their first five-star this year: Woods Baughman, Marc Grandia, Alexandra MacLeod, Lexi Scovil, and Booli Selmayr. Germany’s Josephine Schnaufer-Völkel also has her name down to take her first ride around a five-star. A total of 19 horses will attempt their first five-star in Lexington: Wabbit, Corouet, Maybach, Banzai Du Loir, Pasadena 217, Paper Jam, C’est La Vie 135, Capitol HIM, Global Ex, Sorocaima, Campari FFF, Newmarket Jack, Albano, Fortuna, Chico's Man VDF Z, Millfield Lancando, Fleeceworks Royal, Let it Be Lee, and FischerChipmunk.

Buck Davidson gets the award for busiest rider with four entries to his name: the 15-year-old Holsteiner gelding Carlevo (Eurocommerce Caresino x Ramatuelle), owned by Katherine O’Brien, the 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding Errol Gobey (Cassini II x Ulla II) co-owned by Cassie Segal, Lisa Darden and Natalie Sandler, the 17-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Jak My Style owned by Kathleen and Roberto Cuca, and Buck’s own 11-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Sorocaima (Rock Hard Ten x Sankobasi). Will Coleman has the second most highest number of entries with three horses on the list: the 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Dondante (by Pachio) owned by Team Rebecca LLC, the 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse Gelding Off the Record (VDL Arkansas x Drumagoland Bay), owned by the Off the Record Syndicate, and 15-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Tight Lines (Turgeon x Merindole) owned by The Conair Syndicate.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
