The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event returns to Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, April 27-30. The field includes dozens of riders from countries all over the world.

"Rolex Kentucky" is one of the world's most prestigious equestrian competitions, and is one of only six Four-Star Three-Day Events in the world and the only one in the Western Hemisphere. It is a part of the FEI Classics Series, which unites the top four-star international Eventing competitions from around the world.

Known to fans as "The Best Weekend all Year," the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event offers something for everyone: the highest-level of equestrian competitors, tailgating, music, shopping, bourbon tastings, and more. Visitors also receive general admission to the Kentucky Horse Park, America's only theme park dedicated to horses.

Rolex Kentucky hosts many of the world’s best horses and riders each year as they compete for their share of the $350,000 in prize money. Riders also have a chance at winning the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, which is awarded to any rider who wins the Rolex Kentucky, Mitsubishi Motors Badminton and Land Rover Burghley Four-Star Events in succession.

A 2016 Olympic trial, the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is one of the most prestigious equestrian competitions in the world. The Fédération Equestre Internationale (International Equestrian Federation – FEI), the world’s governing body of equestrian sports, has designated the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event as a “Four Star” eventing competition, the sport’s highest designation, which is given only to the Olympic Games, World Championships, and six annual events around the world.
