The final day of the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is upon us. The 31 remaining horses and riders will start their day with the final veterinary inspection followed by show jumping. Last year Oliver Townend moved up from third to take the win with Cooley Master Class when the first and second placed pairs both had rails down. The 14-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding hasn’t had a rail down in FEI competition since August 2017. However, they don’t have a rail in hand over second-placed Boyd Martin and Tsetserleg, so anything is possible. Could we see the first U.S. winner in over a decade?

Here is what you need to know to keep up with today:

The final horse inspection is at 8:30 a.m. on the High Hope Inspection lane. The veterinary inspection will be live streamed on the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Facebook Page. The ground jury of Christina Klingspor (SWE), Martin Plewa (GER), and Mark Weissbecker (USA) will decide if the horses are fit to move on to show jumping.

Richard Jeffery is the show jumping course designer for the 21st year.

Riders will get their first look at the course at 11:00 a.m. Opening ceremonies are then at 12:00 p.m.

The show jumping starts at 1:00 p.m. and will go in reverse order of placing.
