Lexington, KY – March 26, 2015 – The Split Rock Jumping Tour, the new international show jumping show series held at Split Rock Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, “the Horse Capital of the World,” has launched the online entry system for its inaugural FEI 3* event, The Lexington International CSI 3*, held May 22-24.

Details of the All-Inclusive Entry Packages and classes available can be found within the prize list and show schedule, both also located on their website.

“We are excited to have the ShowGrounds Live online entry system on our website and we encourage competitors to register early, as entries will be limited,” said Derek Braun, Founder and President of Split Rock Jumping Tour. “One of the biggest perks of the online entry system is easily selecting one of our All-Inclusive Entry Packages with the option to add on additional amenities for convenient registering and check-out.”

Convenient online entries and All-Inclusive Entry Packages are just a few of the ways in which the Split Rock Jumping Tour is committed to creating an unparalleled experience for each competitor and their team.

 

The Lexington International is sanctioned by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) as a 3* international competition that will allow riders to earn FEI points without having to travel to Europe. Featured classes include the $100,000 FEI CSI 3* Grand Prix, $40,000 FEI CSI 3* Grand Prix, $35,000 FEI CSI 3* Speed Cup and $15,000 Under 25 Young Rider Cup, all of which will all take place on pristine grass in The Rock Jumping Field.

The Split Rock Jumping Tour is modeled after successful European shows and will give competitors, sponsors and spectators an “Unparalleled Show Jumping Experience” by changing the way show jumping is presented in the U.S.  Split Rock offers a world-class venue with a pristine grass jumping field, top prize money, extravagant awards and numerous first-class amenities for riders, horses, sponsors, and spectators, with close attention paid to every detail. All riders are required to dress in formal attire, and riders receiving ribbons will be required to ride their horse into the arena for the ribbon presentation and participate in the award ceremonies.

The Split Rock Hospitality Experience will include private ringside tables, top-of-the line dining, Gala tickets, lounge seating, music, dancing, access to the VIP Spa Indulge Zone, and exclusive boutique shopping. The Split Rock Jumping Tour has partnered with the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation in which a portion of proceeds from all sales of Split Rock Jumping Tour Hospitality packages will go directly to the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation to support their programs. Split Rock will also provide staff and patients of the Center with free tickets to attend the horse shows. For more information please visit: https://ukmarkey.org.
