The 2022 LRK3DE Daily: Show Jumping

Cross-country yesterday played a huge factor in the standings in both the CCI4*-S and the CCI5*-L at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, but one thing remained the same: Michael Jung proved yet again why he is a force to be reckoned with by holding onto his overnight lead in the five-star following his cross-country performance with FischerChipmunk FRH in his first five-star with the horse.

Interestingly enough, if Jung goes clear in show jumping today he will have won on the lowest ever winning score at any five-star and it would give him his 11th five-star win. With a 20.1, Jung can afford no more than two rails down to maintain his lead as Boyd Martin currently sits in second place on a score of 29.3. In two of three of Jung's past victories at LRK3DE he has had one rail.

The CCI4*-S horse inspection kicks off at 7:30 a.m. and we anticipate seeing 30 horse and rider pairs come forward if no withdrawals have happened overnight. The CCI5*-L final horse inspection will take place immediately following the four-star inspection and if all of today's cross-country finishers come forward, 32 horses will be presented for soundness.

The forecast for today isn't looking fabulous, but it looks like most of the rainy weather will have moved out by the time the action really picks up (or let us cross our fingers it does at least!). Show jumping for both the four and five-star will run in reverse order of placing with the CCI4*-S scheduled to take place at 11:00 a.m. Show jumping for the CCI5*-L will get underway at 2:12 p.m. with awards taking place at 4:45 p.m.

Rescue Horse Runaway Romeo Finds His Calling

Amanda Walker wasn’t sure what she’d gotten herself into when she went to try Runaway Romeo as a potential sales project in 2018. The gelding was a bit bigger than Walker was looking for and was quite pushy coming out of the stall. When she got on, it didn’t get much better.

USEA's Tip Tuesday: Cross-Country Positions with Karen O'Connor

For seasoned and novice riders alike, it is always good to revisit the basics. Serving as the foundation for any eventer, the positions used on the cross-country course differ from those in the dressage or show jumping ring. The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
