Taylor Harris Insurance is proud to support excellence in equestrian sport. That is why we chose to continue to offer this difficult challenge at three of the best US grand prix events."
Taylor Harris Chairman, William Weeks, noted "We can't imagine the excitement if a horse and rider head to the Alltech National Horse Show having won the first two legs of the Challenge. It would be an honor to present a rider with the Triple Crown Challenge Bonus in Kentucky."
