In just three short weeks, I'll be in Kentucky for the 'Grand Slam of Eventing,' the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, covering local equestrian Sydney Conley Elliott's quest to beat the best in the world!

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 CCI4* event. The excitement is even greater this year because Rolex is being used as an Olympic selection trial for Rio 2016.

Sydney Elliott is a life long equestrian from Benton, LA and is the second athlete in our area to qualify for this prestigious competition in the last three years. I can't wait to report on Sydney's journey and for she and her partner Cisko to show the world that we have world class equestrian talent right here in northwest Louisiana.

This video tries to encapsulate all that RK3DE is in just 30 seconds. As a second time visitor, I can tell you that Rolex is all this and so much more! It's truly, 'The Best Weekend All Year!'
