Photo Gallery: A Tense Final Horse Inspection at Kentucky

The second horse inspection at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is punctuated by both tension and relief as the ground jury deliberates over each combination, choosing to send them straight on to the final phase or delay them for further scrutiny.

Today’s jog saw four horses sent to the hold box, including overnight leader fischerRocana FST. The crowd whispered incredulously as Michael Jung paused briefly to absorb the announcement before heading off to the hold box. A collective sigh of relief accompanied applause when the three-time Kentucky Three-Day winners were accepted on reinspection. Similarly, we held our breath when second placed Chris Burton and Nobilis 18 were held and exhaled heavily when they later passed.

Following the most epic server crash in EN history, we will be reporting on Facebook until further notice. Many thanks to our amazing readers for their incredible patience. The chinchillas are working hard to get the EN servers back online as soon as possible.

Show jumping starts at 1 p.m. EST this afternoon. Go Eventing.
