Jim Wofford to Give Cross-Country Course Walk During the Rolex Three-Day Event
RELEASE: March 13, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Stacey Wigmore
Have you ever wondered what's going through a rider's mind when he or she is galloping down to a four-star cross-country fence? You'll find out when you 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 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI**** at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington on Friday, April 25, 2008.
As Wofford discusses the highlights of the course, you'll get an in-depth—and entertaining—look at how the course designer is testing the horses and riders, 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 they look like from the horses' perspective.
To participate, meet Wofford at the cross-country start box 30 minutes after the final dressage ride on April 25. 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.
