exciting news for the 2016 event

We’re just a few short weeks away from this year’s Kentucky Classic CDE!

We’ll be using the Rolex Arena once again this year for the dressage and cones phases.

Looking forward to some of this year’s prizes, we’ll be presenting the dressage and marathon awards at Saturday evening’s costume party. And we will have three special awards this year: the Mia Allo Memorial Trophy, the Groom’s Award, and an award for the Best Turned Out Team for the Horse Inspection.

And we’re hosting the 2016 USEF National Pony Driving Championships!

thank you for another wonderful event!

The 2015 Kentucky Classic CDE concluded on a sunny note: blue skies and gloriously warm temperatures for Sunday’s cones course, after two rainy days of dressage and a damp, COLD marathon Saturday.

Thank you!! to all of our event volunteers and competitors for coming to the Kentucky Horse Park to spend a few days with us, and for smiling through both the rain and the sunshine.

And congratulations to all the class and division winners, to the special trophy winners, and to the 2015 USEF National Four-in-Hand Champion, Chester Weber!

We’ll see you in 2016!!
