“It’s due to the commitment of our longtime RK3DE enthusiasts, our growing base of new fans, and the continuous support of Rolex Watch USA and Land Rover North America that we are able to increase the prize money for our event for a second straight year,” said EEI President Stewart Perry. “We proudly award prize money to the top 20 finishers, and this record level of prize money fits with our position as one of the sport’s premier events.”

Riders also have a chance at winning the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, which is awarded to any rider who wins the Rolex Kentucky, Mitsubishi Motors Badminton (England) and Land Rover Burghley (England) CCI****s in succession.
