Happy what-would-ordinarily-be Land Rover Kentucky jog day! I chose today’s lead photo in honor of the jog queen herself, Lainey Ashker, who has graced the strip many times with her imaginative and fashionable outfits. If I could give you another pair of Dubarrys, Lainey, I would.

If you’re suffering from Kentucky withdrawals this week, trust me when I say that the EN team is with you 100% of the way on that. We’re working hard behind the scenes to bring you the best Virtual Vendor Village ever (click here if you haven’t run out of money yet), and there is plenty of vintage Kentucky content coming your way from all outlets to hold you over.

National Holiday: It’s Earth Day! Mother Nature is our greatest resource, and we owe it to her to take the best care of our environment possible. Let’s all do something today to create a habit of reducing waste tomorrow.

News & Notes:

The USEF Network will be doing a live re-broadcast of the cross country phase from 2012 Kentucky on their Facebook page Saturday at 10 am ET. In celebration of the event’s history as well as a salve for the gaps left behind by this year’s cancellation, you can view on-demand coverage of previous years in their entirety here.

Badminton Horse Trials will also be doing a re-broadcast of previous years’ competitions — and they want your help deciding which years to show. You can vote for your favorite year (and honestly, good luck choosing just three) here.

Do you want to take a virtual lesson with Irish eventing star Jonty Evans? Well, now you can! Jonty is offering virtual lessons to help keep his business afloat during lockdown. Many other riders have opted to offer virtual coaching, too, so be sure to keep an eye on social media for opportunities!
