The contest sponsors are equally excited. “The Kent and Blue Seal brands are thrilled to bring horse enthusiasts this unique opportunity,” said Kristyn Sturken, Product Manager at Kent Nutrition Group.

And the recent decision by Absorbine® to become a sponsor has increased the total value of the prize offerings by a whopping $1,000. “The Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event is a destination for horse enthusiasts from all over the world where they have a chance to witness top level international riding at Kentucky Horse Park, a unique facility in the heart of horse country,” says Chris Jacobi, president of Absorbine®. “We are very pleased to have a part in bringing that experience to a lucky winner, and are looking forward to having a presence at the event.”
