The test events, which are each called the Kentucky Cup, will allow Games organisers to prepare for the world championships in 2010.
The Lexington-based practice is a full-service equine hospital established in 1986 as a referral center for horses requiring specialized medical and surgical care. The hospital facility offers a full range of services including surgery, internal medicine, advanced diagnostic imaging, a focused Podiatry Center and a specialized Reproductive Center. The practice also provides ambulatory services (on-site care) for breeding farms, sport horse facilities, horse shows and events, with a variety of services, including emergency and preventative care, general reproduction, lameness, radiography, podiatry, and internal medicine.
The competitions will begin this year and run through the 2010 Rolex Three-Day Event. All events will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park.
