Tickets for the 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event - America's only annual four-star eventing competition - will go on sale October 15, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. EDT. The thrilling event, organized by Equestrian Events Inc. (EEI), is returning to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, April 25-28, 2019, and will feature Olympic-level riders and horses from across the nation and around the world.
Known as "The Best Weekend All Year," the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is a multi-day competition that features the world's best horses and riders vying for their share of $400,000 in prize money, as well as a shot at the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, which is awarded to any rider who wins the Land Rover Kentucky, Mitsubishi Motors Badminton, and Land Rover Burghley four-star events in succession. Land Rover Kentucky is one of only six annual four-star three-day events in the world and the only one in the Western Hemisphere. As the nation's premier event, it also serves as the Land Rover/USEF CCI4* Eventing National Championship for the American riders.
"If you want the best seats in the house, you better buy your tickets as soon as they go on sale!" said Stewart Perry, president of EEI. "We had over 80,000 spectators at least year's event - with more than 33,000 on cross-country day alone. Tickets and tailgate spots go fast, so I urge everyone to order early!"
Single-Day and Multi-Day tickets will be available. All grounds admission tickets to the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event include general parking and admission to the Kentucky Horse Park and International Trade Fair, but do not include access to the competition in the Rolex Stadium. Reserved grandstand seating is sold separately from grounds admission and traditionally the best seats sell out, so everyone is encouraged to place orders as early as possible. For a unique world-class Kentucky experience, special Ringside Hospitality packages are also available.
Cross-country day draws massive crowds to the Kentucky Horse Park and those interested in a reserved place along the course for the increasingly popular Land Rover Tailgate are urged to reserve their spaces early. Premium spots generally sell out within weeks.

Bellamy, an Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding of unknown breeding, came to Tamra Smith’s farm in Southern California with his mane half-way down his neck and filled with burrs. Bellamy had been sitting in a field for a little over a year after unseating several riders in a row and Smith, known for being good with tricky horses, agreed to take him on.
