$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!
Five-star eventer Kim Severson taught a show jumping clinic in January at Milestone Sport Horses in Lovettsville, Virginia where she instructed riders on the importance of forward riding for successful jumping. In this exercise, which Severson progressively adds additional pieces to, riders are instructed to focus on the quality of their canter.

Billy Jackson was introduced to horses at a young age through his local 4-H program. “One of my mom's close friends was a large animal vet and she really encouraged me to stay with it,” Jackson said.
