On Feb. 2, the organizers of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event announced they were canceling the 2021 CCI5*-L for financial reasons.
“Without spectators, the financial requirements to host the CCI 5*-L are too great for our organization after a year without income,” read a statement on the Kentucky Three-Day website.
Now there is the opportunity to run the five-star if Equestrian Events, Inc., can raise $750,000 by 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 7.
“While not covering all expenses, these funds will provide EEI with enough resources to begin making plans for the 5*-L at the ‘Best Weekend All Year!’ ” states the donation page on the Kentucky website.
EEI officials say they will recognize those who donate. Those who donate in excess of $500 will receive an early ticket-purchase opportunity for the 2022 event.
