    Unfortunately coverage for this is nonexistent other than internet youtube links and www.equestrianlife.com. Horses and riders from all over the world get together and compete in their disciplines. This is in Lexington, KY this year at the Kentucky Horse Park which is where Rolex is held every year. Every single horse discipline shows up. Reining, Vaulting, eventing, jumping, dressage, and even driving.

    Here is a link of quite possibly the most amazing Dressage ride I've ever seen. Dressage is the most difficult for people not in the know about horses to be able to fully appreciate but it is still incredibly cool to watch. The best stuff happens towards the end so if you click the link stick it out! Just the reaction from the crowd should let you know how awesome this is.

    Some of the vaulting teams are currently practicing where my friends live in TN and they've allowed people to come watch. Here is a picture one of my friends took.

    I will try to keep posting links as I see them!

    [link=http://chronofhorse.com/photos_videos?nid=22809]Pictures[/link] of all the cross country jumps that the riders are going to have to jump tomorrow. They are insane!

    Edit: Photo of Mark Todd on course!
