The 2015 Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event started today with a cold, windy day for the first day of dressage. No surprise that leading the field right now is Michael Jung on Fischerrocana, who put in a very nice test, and Laine Ashker is in second place on her OTTB Anthony Patch. Kudos for the riders who kept their very fit horses under control in the less-than-optimum conditions!
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 2 of dressage and many more excellent teams. You can watch Rolex live on the USEF Network (http://www.usefnetwork.com/) which also posts highlights at the end of the day.
While there are lots of familiar names in the line up there’s a great video interviewing Rolex first-timers. How exciting for them all!
