All CCI5*-L horse and rider combinations have been accepted to compete at the 2023 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by MARS Equestrian after an essentially drama-free first horse inspection.

Thirty-eight pairs presented for the Ground Jury of Christina Klingspor (SWE), Peter Shaw (AUS), and Angela Tucker (GBR) under a cloud dotted sky in Lexington, Ky., with nary an entry even flirting with the hold box at the start of competition. The only excitement came in the form of pre- and post-jog antics from the likes of Daytona Beach 8.

The total count did drop by one ahead of the trot up as five-star first-timer Andrew McConnon withdrew Ferrie’s Cello today.

The 5* dressage begins at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday with Buck Davison as the first to go aboard Erroll Gobey. We also can’t forget “mini-Kentucky” being held this week as a CCI4*-S competition. They did not participate in this afternoon’s trot up, but they’ll be the first to kick off dressage competition tomorrow morning beginning at 8:00 a.m.
