Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event 2010 was honored to be named a Top 10 Spring Event by Kentucky Tourism Council. In reality the Kentucky Tourism Council has included Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event 2010 in the list of Top 10 Events and Festivals in Kentucky since 2004.
As the Council announced, “Since this premier event is the only four-star, three-day event in the Americas, it brings international attention to Lexington and the Bluegrass each spring, while attracting crowds in excess of 100,000.”
Officially sponsored by Rolex Watch Company, Kentucky 3 Day Event attracts many of the world’s best horses and riders to champion for $250,000 money prize.
Of course not every combination that competes at the Four Star level will be chosen to represent the U.S. but again the Rolex Four Star Championship, $200,000 in prize money and a Rolex Watch make the competition important in its own right and mark the high point of any U.S. rider’s career.
This spring Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event 2010 will take place from 22-25 April in Kentucky Horse Park.
Betsy and Jessie Steiner will be sharing dressage commentary duties at Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. Both Betsy and Jessie are widely respected in the Dressage community.
As the matter of fact, both have commentated at Dressage at Devon (PA). And Betsy has even co-hosted television programs on international dressage and is an author and clinician on fitness.
Mother and daughter Steine are both international (FEI) level riders and Betsy rode at the World Championships in Sweden for USA Team. The family training facilities are located in New Jersey, their home base. Here at Wellington (FL) they compete, train and coach during the winter circuit.
Sally O’Connor’s oldest son, Brian, the Controller on Cross-Country Day of Rolex Kentucky and Dressage Eventing Competitions announcer throughout the U.S., will enlight Show Jumping for the Rolex Kentucky Event 2010.
At last we should say some words about Sally O’Connor. Named the Eventing FEI Steward for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG), she has provided the commentary at Rolex Kentucky since the initial offering of this highly popular service. Since Rolex Kentucky 2010 will serve as the WEG Eventing Test Event, Mrs. O’Connor will be serving as FEI Steward at Rolex Kentucky 2010.
Hope Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event 2010 will be hot enough to get us warm after the long winter!
