The Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event is almost here! The event kicks off Thursday, April 25th and continues to Sunday, April 28th (They never changed the name when the event grew to a fourth day.).
If you have never been to this great event at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY you have been missing out. It is a fun and exciting demonstration of top riders of the international horse sport with their best horses in the highest classes of competition.
The event consists of three events; dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. It is at the same four star level of competition that the Olympics run on.
The contestants are chomping at the bit to win their share of the $250,000 prize money and a shot at the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing award. Last year’s winner, William Fox-Pitt, will be returning. Also in the running are several Olympic riders.
The event is a great way to kick off the Kentucky Derby which takes place the following weekend, May 3rd.
Another great reason to attend is the Trade Fair. There will be over 175 merchants, corporate sponsors and food vendors to offer all horse lovers something to enjoy. It is a truly enormous gathering of interesting booths and people.
Portable Restroom Trailers always enjoys providing our facilities for this event. It is a great group of people and a ton of fun to be out for the weekend. We believe that just because everyone is out in the fields doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be comfortable. So, if you love eventing or are just curious, come check out the Rolex Kentucky this weekend. We’ve got plenty of restroom trailers ready for when you have to go “like a racehorse”!
