Three Kentucky Three-Day Event competitors took time out from their competition prep Tuesday before the event to pay a visit to UK’s Children’s Hospital. The riders were representing the Professional Riders Organization (PRO).
Doug Payne, Alexandra Knowles and Lauren Kieffer, all U.S. riders passed out souvenirs and posed for photos with the wide-eyed kids. Payne’s wife Jess joined the group for the visit.
“It’s very special; I hope that this keeps going on every year,” said Kieffer of the visit. “I hope we brought some fun to the kids today.”
