Kentucky Three Day Event
This year's Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event (LRK3DE) was held without spectators due to covid19 but that didn't make it any less thrilling. In fact, it was a boon for photographers and possibly even for some of the riders and horses as there was less distraction. There were many first-timers at this prestigious competition as well as past winners and the country's best riders.

This is a selection out of the thousands of images I shot. I hope the pictures tell the story of "the best weekend all year".
