Lexington, Ky.—April 28
The Sunday morning jog at a CCI-L is always full of tension. You’re crossing all of your fingers and toes hoping that the horses came out of Saturday’s cross-country fit and ready to take on show jumping the following afternoon.
Grooms, owners and supporters hold their breath waiting to hear their horse’s name come over the loudspeaker, followed by the word accepted. In the second horse inspection at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, no one headed back to the barn disappointed. Thirty-one horses finished yesterday’s cross-country; 31 were presented to the ground jury, and 31 will show jump this afternoon. None were asked to represent, and no one was sent to the hold box.
We’re on site at the Kentucky Horse Park to bring you all the info and photos you need to know from the biggest event of the year. Check back all weekend at coth.com and be sure to pick up the May 20 print edition of the Chronicle for much more.
