Are you ready for the first of two days of dressage at the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event? Nineteen riders will canter into the Rolex Arena for the inaugural CCI5*-L today. Caroline Martin will be the first to ride for judges Christina Klingspor (SWE), Martin Plewa (GER), and Mark Weissbecker (USA) at 10:00 a.m. on Islandwood Captain Jack. Martin will then return for her second ride aboard Danger Mouse as the penultimate ride at 2:44 p.m.

Buck Davidson is the only other rider with two mounts today – he rides his longtime partner Park Trader at 10:08 a.m. and his second ride is five-star first-timer, Jak My Style at 2:52 p.m. as the final ride of the day. Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp and Deniro Z are the third in today for their second five-star start. They scored a 29.8 at Luhmuhlen last year so are ones to watch for sure.

After the lunch break, the competitor who traveled the farthest, Hazel Shannon and Willingapark Clifford, will have their turn in the ring. The Australian natives have won the Adelaide twice, but are competing outside of their country for the first time together.

      Now on Course: Heartbeats and Hoofbeats

      My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.

      Beware of Phishing Attempts and Other Types of Fraud

      Please always remain vigilant when it comes to sending any personal communications via email or text. Every year we receive reports of members and leaders of our sport receiving phishing attempts both online and by phone. These are often communications disguised as being sent from USEA staff or other leaders. As the years go on, the phishing attempts appear to be more directed and tailored.

      Top 10 Tips for Leather Care with Bates Saddles

      Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
