Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event and the Kentucky Reining Cup, held at the Kentucky Horse Park, has made financial contributions of just under $20,000 to several charities that serve the Commonwealth of Kentucky and equine interests.
Because of the great attendance of patrons at the Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event and the Kentucky Reining Cup these charitable contributions were made possible according to EEI President Darren Ripley.
