SUCCEED Horses at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event 2013

This year’s Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is going to be nothing less than exciting. From past Olympians to Rolex winners and veterans, this star-studded line up guarantees a fast-paced equestrian competition.

Among the impressive list of riders competing at Rolex 2013 are a couple of SUCCEED-sponsored riders: Jennie Brannigan and Hawley Bennett-Awad.

Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda

Jennie Brannigan has been named as one of three featured riders at Rolex this year. This is her first time competing at Rolex and doing so has been a dream of hers since she started her career at age 14.

Jennie will be competing with her horse Cambalda, aka Ping, a bay Irish gelding. They’ve become quite the pair since 2009 when they won the Intermediate Division at the AECs and ranked fifth overall on the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Intermediate Leaderboard.

In 2010, USEA named Jennie to the Top 10 Rider List while Cambalda was added to the Developing Rider List, and became the USEA/SmartPak Horse of the Year.

In 2011 and 2012, Cambalda and Jennie had fantastic years at the Advanced level, winning the CIC 3* at the Fork, taking 2nd at Richland and finishing 3rd at Jersey Fresh.

Follow Jennie’s Rolex journey on her blog and visit her Eventing website to find out more about her horses, coaching and training, schedule and more.

Jennie has been a SUCCEED sponsored rider since 2007. She recently posted this message to the SUCCEED Facebook page: “Placing second in the 3* at The Fork was the perfect last run before Ping and I head to Rolex! Thank you so much for all of your support, I know Ping will be competing at his best thanks to your amazing products!”

Hawley Bennett-Awad and Gin & Juice

Hawley Bennett-Awad will be competing at Rolex with her bay thoroughbred Gin & Juice. Hawley has competed at Rolex several times over the years.

Gin & Juice, aka Ginny, received a silver medal for Team Canada at the 2010 World Equestrian Games, the 2010 USEA Mare of the Year Award, a top 10 finish at the Rolex Kentucky CCI****, and a spot on the 2012 Olympic team – just to name a few of her accomplishments.

Follow Hawley’s Rolex journey on her blog and visit her Eventing website to find out more about her farm, horses, lessons and training, achievements and more.

Hawley has been a SUCCEED-sponsored rider since 2010.

Both Jennie and Hawley are riders to watch at Rolex 2013. SUCCEED and Freedom Health wishes these two riders, and especially their horses Ping and Ginny, safe, successful rides at Rolex this weekend.  

The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event begins April 25 and goes through April 28. You can find all Rolex updates, information about horses and riders, and more on their website, Facebook, or Twitter.
