We’re all anxiously awaiting the start of the Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event in just a few days. But while our attention has been on the 5* entry list, we’re also seeing an exciting roster for the jumpers in the Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix, presented by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. Competition will begin with a 1.45m Speed Class, scheduled to take place on Friday, April 28th after the completion of dressage for the 5* eventing competition, as well as the 1.60m Invitational Grand Prix on Saturday, April 29th.
The jumpers are coming out in full force, with an impressive list coming to compete. Ten countries will be represented, with top riders, including numerous Olympians, vying for the top spot in Kentucky. 2022 Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix winner Conor Swail will be returning for a repeat, and we see Doug Payne wearing two hats this weekend, as he’s entered both in the 5*/4* event with Quantum Leap (Camarillo in the 4*) and the CSI3* with Quintessence.
