It’s the first day of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian and the first time spectators have graced the grounds for the event since 2019. Following the first horse inspection on Wednesday all 45 pairs presented in the CCI5* are moving forward with competition and we will also see 48 horses give the CCI4*-S a run for the money over the course of the competition week.

Liz Halliday-Sharp and The Monster Partnership’s 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Cooley Quicksilver (Womanizer x Kylmore Crystal) are the first pair to kickstart competition in Kentucky in the CCI4*-S. A total of 24 horses will compete today starting at 8:00 a.m. Missy Miller riding her own 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding Quinn (Quirado x Maleika II) will be the last of the 24 CCI4*-S pairs set to trot down the centerline on Thursday. Four-star dressage will resume at 8:00 a.m. on Friday with the remaining 24 horses led by Heather Gillette and her 10-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Vincent Chase (Value Plus x Her Entourage).

Kicking off the five-star competition is Will Coleman aboard Team Rebecca, LLC’s 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Dondante (by Pachio) at 1:00 p.m. The last of the 21 five-star pairs who will compete on Thursday is Hallie Coon riding her 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Global EX (Contador x Wessely Wonderfly). The remaining 24 competitors will set out to dazzle the dressage judges on Friday at 12:30 p.m. with Jennie Brannigan leading the way aboard Nina and Timothy Gardner’s 12-year-old German Sport Horse gelding FE Lifestyle (Leo von Faelz x Berina A).
