Dubarry of Ireland are proud to announce that they are continuing their sponsorship for the 6th year of the $20,000 Dubarry of Ireland Nations Team Challenge competition at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. There will be four riders per national team, and the teams will be determined by FEI ranking of entries after the first horse inspection on Wednesday, April 25th. Teams combining multiple countries are possible where there are countries with fewer than four entries. The top 3 scores for each team will be combined to make up the final score. The Nations Team Challenge adds another exciting dynamic to the biggest Eventing competition on US soil, encouraging comradery and a sense of national pride among riders who have traveled to Kentucky from all parts of the world.
Dubarry are also continuing the tradition of sponsoring the Dubarry Best Dressed Male and Female Rider Award after the first horse inspection. The awards will be presented at the Sponsor and Competition Welcome Reception that evening, and the winning riders will recieve a voucher for a pair of Dubarry boots.
Supporting the growth and success of #LRK3DE is very near and dear to the Dubarry brand, and they are please to continue their sponsorship in 2018 as the event starts a new chapter as the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. The Dubarry booth has become an integral part of the experience for the thousands of people coming through the gates at the Kentucky Horse Park each year. #onlyinkentucky!
