There were times today that it seemed spectators and competitors alike might simply float away, but it was an incredible day of cross country riding with all the excitement and drama we expect at an event of this caliber. Thankfully everyone made it back to the barns safe and sound, as it should be.
No matter what happened out there, we love all these positive shoutouts to the incredible horses that make this all possible and the support teams that stand behind them.
As rookie of the day, there is a whole lot of Elisa Wallace Awesome (that’s a proper noun, folks) circulating social media tonight.
So many people at the KHP and at home watching the live feed were able to enjoy the day!

I get teary-eyed every time a pair cross the finish line safe and sound and the rider gives the horse well deserved love @RolexKentucky
