For American eventers, the bluegrass lanes of the Kentucky Horse Park are hallowed grounds. Since the late 1970’s it has been the home of championships, important selection trials and, eventually, North America’s only five-star event. This weekend of course, it’s home to the American Eventing Championships and for many of the record-breaking 949 starters this is their chance to gallop across those hallowed grounds following the hoof prints of their heroes and champions.

We’re nearing the finish line of the 2019 AECs. This morning the Novice riders jumped the colored poles and finished up their weekend and the Beginner Novice competitors got their chance to gallop out on those sacred grounds. We’re awaiting the start of the Advanced show jumping which kicks off shortly at 7:00 P.M. (don’t miss it on the live stream!), but first let’s look back at some of the action from earlier today:
