2022 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is Underway

All 45 horses who presented to the ground jury at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS EQUESTRIAN™ will be moving on to the first phase of competition, the dressage, following the first horse inspection. Under warm blue skies, the competitors in the CCI5*-L competition put their best and most fashionable foot forward as they demonstrated their horses’ fitness to begin the competition.

Two competitors — Booli Selmayr with Millfield Lancando and Alexandra MacLeod with Newmarket Jack — were held upon first inspection, but passed upon representation. One additional competitor — Doug Payne and Quantum Leap — was asked to immediately re-jog at the first presentation, but was accepted.

The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS EQUESTRIAN™ (LRK3DE), April 28-May 1, 2022 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., hosts one of only seven annual Five Star three-day events in the world.

The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is a thrilling multi-day competition featuring Olympic-level riders and horses in what can best be described as an equestrian triathlon. Horse and rider pairs compete in three phases of the competition – Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping. The Five Star riders compete for their share of $375,000 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, Badminton and Land Rover Burghley Five Star Events in succession. LRK3DE is the longest-running Five Star event in the Americas and as the United States’ premier event, also serves as the Land Rover/USEF CCI-5*-L Eventing National Championship presented by MARS EQUESTRIAN™ for the U.S. athletes.
