The Kentucky Classic CDE began in 2011 and has been contested each year since, on the grounds of the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park, just north of Lexington, Kentucky. In that first year, the event was honored to use the marathon obstacles that had been designed and built the year before, for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (although they were, of course, decorated differently in 2011).

The marathon at each year’s Kentucky Classic incorporates a few of those same obstacles, but it also includes several specially built obstacles near the event’s beautiful grass arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

At last year’s event, the Kentucky Classic was proud to host the 2015 USEF National Four-in-Hand Championship. To see photos of last year’s event, visit the “News” page.

And the year before, the event was proud to host the 2014 USEF National Championships for Pairs and for Ponies. In 2013, the event hosted the USEF National Championships for Single Horses and for Four-in-Hand Teams of Horses. And in 2012? The Kentucky Classic was honored to host the USEF National Pony Driving Championships (for Singles, Pairs, and Four-in-Hand Teams).
