Lexington, Ky. – Competitors have arrived at the Kentucky Horse Park for the Hagyard MidSouth Three-Day Event. Horses competing in the USEF CCI1* and USEF CCI1*-JR/YR National Championships this weekend were presented for the first inspection today.

All horses competing in the USEF CCI1* Eventing National Championship passed the jog. This year, Alexandra Green (Loudon, Tenn.) and her seven-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Fernhill Famous, are vying for the championship title. Fernhill Famous has had a strong start to his career, placing in the top 15 with Green in both CIC1* events they competed in this year.

All horses in the young riders division, the USEF CCI1*-JR/YR Eventing National Championship, passed the jog. Ashlyn Hayworth (Grapevine, Texas) and her eight-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Borasco, will be a combination to watch this weekend. In May of this year, Hayworth and Borasco won the CCI1* at the Texas Rose Hose Park.

Thursday, October 19, marks the first day of competition featuring CCI1* and CCI1*-JR/YR dressage beginning at 8:00 a.m.
