April 23, 2012–Join eventing legend and Practical Horseman magazine columnist Jim Wofford for a FREE (with event admission), fun and educational cross-country course walk during the 2012 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI****, presented by Bridgestone, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Friday, April 27, 2012.
As Jim Wofford discusses the highlights of the course for the three day event, you’ll gain insight into how the Rolex 2012 course designer, Derek di Grazia, will test the Rolex 2012 event horses and riders at each obstacle, and why. Find out the best way to approach and leave each obstacle and what the riders must consider at each question. Discover how the materials and build of each jump are important, and learn what the Rolex 2012 three day event course looks like from the event horses’ perspective.
To participate in this informative?and entertaining?event, meet Jim Wofford at the first water jump 30 minutes after the final dressage ride on April 27. Plan to spend at least two hours on course. Wear comfortable, waterproof footwear, and come prepared for the weather conditions with an umbrella, jacket, sunscreen, bug spray, water and, if you wish, a portable chair or blanket to sit on.
