About Our Auction
In honor of Practical Horseman’s 50th anniversary, Equine Network has commissioned eight saddles to be custom painted by artists and auctioned off at the 2023 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.
Each painted saddle will feature a different theme and the signature of a Kentucky Three-Day Event winner or competitor. Riders featured in the saddles’ artwork are Will Coleman, Boyd Martin, Tamie Smith, Lauren Nicholson, Phillip Dutton, Buck Davidson, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Doug Payne.
Saddles will be placed with specific vendors spread throughout the Horse Park during the Kentucky Three-Day Event, making it easy for event-goers to find and bid on their favorites. Each saddle will have a sign with a QR code that will provide information about the saddle, rider, artist and a link to the online auction.
Winners of the auction will be announced on Sunday at the conclusion of the event and saddles can either be picked up or shipped to the winner.
Proceeds from this auction will be split three ways and given to the following charities:
-The University of Kentucky Children's Hospital.
-The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation: the official charity of the Land Rover Kentucky 3 Day Event.
-The Seen Through Horses Campaign: helping to support and empower programs that incorporate horses for mental health.
