Rolex 3 Day Event – An unforgettable equine experience in Kentucky!
Out of state relatives visit my family each year to enjoy the competitions which are well managed and presented. Countless volunteers and staff make the event a positive experience.
The athleticism and coordination between animal and rider are up close and personal here at Rolex, without the stuffiness and white table-cloth hindrances of European 5 star events. Food, shopping and other on-site events (like Pony Club) make the Horse Park a full weekend destination every April in Lexington.
Jumping and dressage are presented in the covered stadium, while the Saturday cross-country event over dozens of beautiful jumps throughout the meadows, ponds and woodland areas of this rolling 1200 acre landscape – which makes this a stress free experience for the novice and accomplished rider alike.
Buy your stadium tickets on November 1st and plan to attend this signature Lexington event.
