Featured Video: Highlights from the 2017 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event



It’s no secret that we’re fans of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event here at Horse Illustrated and HorseChannel.com. It’s the most prestigious eventing competition in the western hemisphere, and currently one of only six 4* events in the world. Between the competition, the exhibitions and demos, the shopping, and yes, the Land Rover test driving, it’s a must-attend destination for equestrian sportsfans.
