Equestrian sports are the best of both worlds; high-end equestrianism embodies elegance, tradition, and luxury, while the practice of riding is actually challenging, athletic, and connected to nature through working outdoors and building a relationship with another species. What better way to celebrate this dichotomy than to live it in the form of glamping? Glamping combines the luxury of a hotel suite with the opportunity for natural insight and adventure that comes from camping.
For the first time at this spring’s Rolex Kentucky Three-Day event, visitors will have access to a glamping area on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park, where they will stay in sturdy waterproof canvas tents outfitted with furniture, lighting, and rugs. Though the tents don’t include toilets, they are miles beyond traditional camping in comfort.
Glampers’ access pass to their camps are for the full four days of the event, and also serve as admission tickets. This year’s glamping opportunities sold out quickly, so interested parties should keep an early eye on next year’s event.
It is a unique opportunity to not only witness the thrill of this world-class event, but to live in the lap of luxury while camping. It’s sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
