Are you ready for the KY Classic CDE, October 5-8, 2017?


The Kentucky Classic CDE began in 2011 and has been contested each year since, on the grounds of the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park, just north of Lexington, Kentucky. In that first year, the event was honored to use the marathon obstacles that had been designed and built the year before, for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (although they were, of course, decorated differently in 2011).

The marathon at each¬†year’s Kentucky Classic incorporates a few of those same obstacles, but it also includes several specially built¬†obstacles near the event’s beautiful grass arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

The event has a long history of hosting championship events –

  • 2015 USEF National Four-in-Hand Championship
  • 2014 USEF National Championships for Pairs and for Ponies
  • 2013 USEF National Championships for Singles and Four-in-Hand
  • USEF National Pony Driving Championships (for Singles, Pairs, and Four-in-Hand Teams)
