Cross-Country Powerhouses of Kentucky

It is cross-country day! By all accounts the courses today are beefy and tight for the time, and with the rain supposed to start by noon today, we’re in for an action-packed day.

The action starts quick for the 5*, with our trail-blazer headed out of the box at 8:30 am. Click here to see the order of go with ride times and here for all the details on how to watch live.

HOW TO READ

The charts below visually shows the experience of horse and rider as a pair. Each slice represents a start at Advanced, 4*, or 5*. Orange is for Advanced/4*-S, pink shows 4*-L starts, and dark blue represents 5* starts. If the slice is full color, it was a clear cross country round with jump penalties. If the slice is a bit lighter, that indicates the round had jump penalties in the form of stops, flags, or frangibles but still completed, while a very light color indicates a non-completion for any reason. That can include technical elimination, retirement, elimination from accumulation of stops, fall on the flat, or rider or horse fall.

The outer rings represent the speed rating; the closer to a full ring, the faster that pair at each level. Again, three rings for three types of starts.
