Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event

April 1, 2012-- This year's premiere eventing competition will be held April 26-29 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Udiana, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare owned by Chloe Wormser, was really straight up to this jump, and the result is she is producing a solid jumping effort. In this exercise, I put a ground pole on the right side of the landing, which helps center a horse who drifts to the right. Udiana is responding by overcorrecting and jumping a little to the left of the fence's center. | ? Amy Katherine Dragoo
