Lexington, Kentucky, USA – May 15, 2020 – The Split Rock Jumping Tour’s (SRJT) Lexington International CSI 2* has received final approvals from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, FEI and USEF and will be held June 17-21 at the Kentucky Horse Park. Entries are still open and anyone who has not yet entered is encouraged to submit entries immediately.
“This has obviously been a difficult time for everyone and we are excited to be among the first to offer an opportunity to return to horse showing,” said Split Rock Jumping Tour Founder and CEO Derek Braun. “Ensuring the safety of our exhibitors and everyone involved is our top priority and we will be strictly enforcing all protocols and guidelines put forth by the CDC, USEF and FEI. I encourage everyone to read our protocols carefully.”
The limited number of horses (400), combined with the expansive nature of the Kentucky Horse Park and the SRJT team, will provide the ideal structure to properly mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. To help maintain proper social distancing, everyone is encouraged to utilize the SRJT app. The app can be used to file entries, to add/scratch, and for start lists and course designs. The app also provides live results, live streaming, video clips, notifications, announcements, and much more. Click here to download!
