Rolex Kentucky: Cross Country Day

Posted in Disciplines, Eventing, Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event at 10:16 pm by Thomas

As happens more times then not this time of the year in Kentucky, the weather went from bad to great in a matter of a days.  The weather for the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event: Cross Country Day started out a little chilly but soon warmed up and it turned into a gorgeous day.  Many people have sun-burns to prove it, which if I can give one bit of advice, wear Sun Screen.

Way to take the Lake.

The jump at the Head of the Lake is always a crowd favorite and this year was no exception.  We watched a number of horses through this jump and other then a few minor mis-steps they all completed it with authority.

There were a few horses retired or eliminated over the length of the course but no major career ending injuries to any horse or rider and so that makes it a good Cross Country Day when everybody can come back another day.

At the end of the day, Mary King on KINGS TEMPTRESS with a clean round and no time faults was in first going into tomorrow’s Show Jumping finale.икони
