$527,605.00. That is the amount of money raised since last Thursday (February 4) by the passionate and unparalleled eventing community in order to run the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day CCI5*-L in 2021.
We are still shy of our $750,000 goal, but following this incredible outpouring of support, the Equestrian Events, Inc. Executive Committee has authorized a deadline extension for this fundraising effort through Wednesday, February 10 at 6:00 p.m. EST.
If you rolled tickets from 2020 over to 2021 and would like to donate those funds in lieu of receiving a refund or rolling over to 2022, you may do so and those amounts will be applied to our total donation number.
EEI would like to thank everyone who has donated so far, and the riders who have spearheaded fundraising efforts of their own. Every contribution, big and small, is deeply appreciated!
It’s the turn of the world’s best Eventing athletes to stand under the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games spotlight over the next few days as all but one of the horses presented at this morning’s horse inspection at Baji Koen Equestrian Park were confirmed for action by the Ground Jury.
And they're off! Eventing kicks off today in Tokyo (Thursday, July 29 – 7:30 p.m. ET), with the first of three Olympic dressage sessions. Competitors from 29 nations will go head to head, vying for a spot on the coveted Olympic podium.
There were a few last-minute dramas at the first horse inspection for the Tokyo Olympics which took place in the main equestrian park at Baji Koen Equestrian Centre at 9:30 a.m. JST today.
