Central Kentucky Riding for Hope

The Paul Frazer Memorial Combined Test and Dressage Competition, scheduled for March 27 at the Kentucky Horse Park,  is dedicated to a former CKRH Board Member who for years worked to remove physical barriers to young people in Fayette County schools. Paul designed the first handicapped bus in the Fayette County Public Schools, and his design later served as a model for all such buses in Kentucky. As Director of Maintenance for Fayette County schools, Paul oversaw the construction of accessibility ramps, installation of elevators, and other structural remodeling to ensure access for every student.

This annual show is dedicated to his memory and CKRH’s commitment to provide recreational, therapeutic and socialization opportunities to students of all ages.

Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

An unprecedented outpouring of public support and a grassroots fundraising effort led to a reversal of the announced cancellation of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI Five Star. A new partnership between Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of the event, and the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation combined with the support of US Equestrian and longstanding sponsors Land Rover, Mars Equestrian, and Rolex will ensure that the three-day event will be held, without spectators, April 22-25 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

“The uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic placed us in the financially impossible position of having to run the Five Star event without spectators, a situation that left us no choice but to cancel the Five Star for 2021 in order to preserve it for many years to come,” said Mike Cooper, president of EEI. “We are humbled and honored by the response of the eventing community as they’ve stepped up in a mind-blowing way enabling us to go forward.”
