Benton, LA resident Sydney Conley Elliott will compete with the best the world has to offer this weekend in the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event at Kentucky Horse Park in the 'Grand Slam of Eventing.'

And by the best in the world, I truly mean the best in the world. Equestrians from all over the planet will converge on Kentucky Horse Park for North America's only CCI5* event. Elliott is a lifelong equestrian and proof positive that we have world-class equestrian talent right here in northwest Louisiana.
