    Rolex JogPhotoset: A High-Fashion Horse Inspection at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event
    Competition at the 2015 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event begins on Thursday, April 23 with the first day of dressage. But the initial horse inspection on Wednesday afternoon has increasingly become a spectator draw. This year, 75 horses were presented for inspection, and all 75 horses passed. Kyle Carter of Canada had been on the schedule, but made the last-minute decision to pull his horse, Madison Park, from the event.

    Rolex DressageDressage Phase Ends with a Dead Heat at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event
    After a long day of dressage in the bright sun, Germany’s Michael Jung came out tied for the lead with New Zealand’s Tim Price on a score of 36.3. Winning the dressage was all but expected of Jung, who was aboard his second mount in the competition, La Biosthetique – Sam FBW. Sam and Jung won individual gold at the 2010 World Equestrian Games at the same venue as Rolex, Lexington’s Kentucky Horse Park.

    Rolex Cross-CountryTim Price and Wesko Gallop into the Lead after Cross-Country at Rolex
    It was a miserably wet, chilly day at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., for the cross-country portion of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. Horses going earlier in the day had the definite advantage before the rain became heavy and started turning the ground into mud. In a tie for first going into cross-country on a score of 36.3, New
    Zealand’s Tim Price aboard Wesko went a little more than halfway through
    the order of go.

    Rolex Show Jumping
    Michael Jung and FischerRocana FST Win in Their Rolex Debut

    Riding in reverse order of standing, the tension mounted for each rider entering the show jumping ring at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, Ky. The final phase in eventing determines who will take home the biggest paycheck as rails and time faults are added to existing penalty scores after dressage and cross-country. Riding his individual silver medal winner at last year’s World
    Equestrian Games, Michael Jung of Germany jumped a flawless clear round
    with his mare FischerRocana FST, who was within one rail of first place.
