About Eventing

The ultimate test of horse and rider! One event, three disciplines, testing the resolve of the timeless partnership between horse and rider, to trot, gallop and soar past anything that stands in their way.

DRESSAGE on Thursday and Friday is held in the breath taking outdoor stadium at the Kentucky Horse Park, where spectators enjoy the grace, refined beauty and elegance of dressage as competitors trot their way through the first phase of competition. Dressage, which tests the gaits, suppleness and obedience of the horse through a series of prescribed movements.

The Second phase, CROSS-COUNTRY, is the highlight of Eventing. Saturday is the most exciting day of Rolex Kentucky as thousands gather to watch horses and riders gallop over four miles of the challenging terrain, at speeds up to 25 mph, while negotiating remarkable obstacles, water hazards, banks and ditches.

The JUMPING TEST, the final phase, brings the energy and precision of jumping back to the outdoor stadium on Sunday. Spectators from across the globe will witness the world’s finest horses and riders test their athletic ability, conditioning and training as they soar over obstacles.
