#RK3DE First Horse Inspection Social Media Roundup

Rolex officially got under way with the First Horse Inspection this afternoon. All the horses and their riders looked absolutely smashing and, as usual, we saw quite the eclectic mix of looks. While all horses presented eventually passed, the jog lane was by no means drama free!

Getting ready with two is double the challenge.

Colleen doing the braiding on one and Alex getting the other one cleaned up nicely for Jogs. First time at a 4 * with two horses is a little different.

It was a blustery afternoon and some horses were feeling frisky! Last year’s winner Bay My Hero has no patience for this jogging business. He’s ready to run!

“There’s a reason we call him Screwdini,” Katie Ruppel said. “And this is it.”
