A couple of big-name event riders are doing some cross-discipline training and taking stage at The Kentucky Summer Classic hunter/jumper show throughout the weekend. Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin, and Will Coleman are all there with several horses getting some jumps in during the summertime event lull. They’re seizing the opportunity to take some of their up-and-coming horses out for some good exposure as well as get in a few practice rounds on some seasoned campaigners before the fall season begins.

National Holiday: National Lasagna Day and National Chicken Wing Day. Take your pick!
