After thorough inspection of the Cross Country Course following the 2015 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, the KHP and KHPF leadership have come to the mutual decision that we need to cancel the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation’s Cross Country Schooling for May 3rd and May 4th due to adverse course conditions resulting from the heavy rain and high attendance at the cross country portion of Rolex Kentucky.  The course footing and safety of riders is the number one priority of the park and we appreciate your understanding of our need to protect these interests while we work to repair and improve the course for upcoming events.  The next Cross Country Schooling opportunity will be held, Saturday, June 6th.
