The Land Rover Kentucky CCI5*-L entry list went live today, and 52 pairs will look to tackle the biggest event in the United States on April 25-28, in Lexington, Kentucky.
Riders from seven countries will compete, including reigning Kentucky champion and world No. 1 Oliver Townend on Cooley Master Class, although the pair are cross-entered at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (England).
Two-time Adelaide CCI4* (Australia) winners Hazel Shannon and Willingapark Clifford will be making the long trek from the Southern Hemisphere, as will Brazil’s Marcelo Tosi and Glenfly.
Several first-timers will make their 5* debut, including Chris Talley (Unmarked Bills), Dominic Schramm (Bolytair B) and Frankie Thieriot Stutes (Chatwin).
Boyd Martin, Lauren Kieffer and Caroline Martin have three entries apiece, and Buck Davidson currently has four.
