We’ve waited two years, and now the #BestWeekendAllYear has finally arrived - the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian. The event kicks off Wednesday with the first veterinary inspections on the High Hope Inspection Lane at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Sixty-eight horse-and-rider combinations from around the world have made the trip with hopes of becoming the next LRK3DE champion. It will be Australia’s Clayton Fredericks making the first trek down the coveted centerline with FE Ophelia, in what is set to be only one of two CCI5*-Ls in the western hemisphere this year. Fredricks is a previous Kentucky winner, topping the podium in 2007 with Ben Along Time.
