Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. (Eastern), October 15 for the 2020 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS EQUESTRIAN & Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix presented by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. Save the date to get the best seats in the house for the “Best Weekend All Year!”
Organized by Equestrian Events Inc. (EEI), both world-class events return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, April 23-26, 2020, and will feature elite horses and riders from across the nation and around the world, many of whom will be competing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Known as “The Best Weekend All Year,” the Land Rover Kentucky is a thrilling multi-day competition featuring Olympic-level riders and horses in what can best be described as an equestrian triathlon. Horse and rider pairs compete in three phases of the competition – Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping – for $400,000 in prize money.
LRK3DE is one of only six annual Five Star three-day events in the world along with Badminton and Burghley in England; Luhmuhlen in Germany; Pau in France; and Adelaide in Australia. LRK3DE is the only annual Five Star event in the Americas and as the United States’ premier event, it also serves as the Land Rover/USEF CCI-5*-L Eventing National Championship Presented by MARS EQUESTRIAN for the U.S. athletes.
“Now is the time to make plans to be part of the country’s premier equestrian event,” said Mike Cooper, president of the board of Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of both events. “Interest is sure to be at an all-time high in this Olympic year and I urge everyone to buy their tickets as soon as they go on sale!”
Single-Day and Multi-Day tickets will be available. All grounds admission tickets to the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event include general parking and admission to the Kentucky Horse Park and International Trade Fair, but do not include access to the competition in the Rolex Stadium Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Reserved grandstand seating is sold separately from grounds admission and traditionally the best seats sell out, so everyone is encouraged to place orders as early as possible. Grounds admission is free for children 12 years and under with adult ticket purchases. Early bird prices are offered October 15-December 5, 2019, only, so it is best to order tickets as soon as they go on sale!
For a unique world-class Kentucky experience, exclusive Ringside Hospitality Packages are also available, including Patron Plus, Patron Club, and Kentucky Club (Saturday only).
Tickets for the 2020 Land Rover Kentucky can be ordered online at www.kentuckythreedayevent.com/tickets or over the phone (859-254-8123).
