Lexington, Ky.—April 24
Months of preparation have all led up to this. Final gallops were completed, and 42 horses were presented in front of the ground jury for the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. (You can read all about the excitement of the jog and get the low-down on the riders’ outfits here.)
Make no mistake, these horses are fit, and some riders were holding on to kites are they traveled down the jog strip, but each and every horse was presented maticulously with stunning braids, gleaming coats and some impressive quartermarks..
From fashion-forward to more classic looks, riders were decked out too.
