Introduction by Kim

The 2012 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI**** presented by Bridgestone will be a gateway for a selected few riders to the London Olympics this summer. The event, which offers over $250,000 in prize money and prizes, is also the USEF CCI**** Eventing Championship. In addition, the winning rider is eligible to compete for the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, which awards $350,000 to the rider who consecutively wins the Rolex Kentucky Event, the Mitsubishi Badminton Horse Trials and the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
