Kim Severson and Jan Byyny Offer Expert Advice During Rolex Course Walk

PLYMOUTH, Mass. – (March 28, 2008) Attendees of the 2008 Rolex Kentucky 3 Day, will have the opportunity to walk the only 4 star cross country course in America with two of the country’s top event riders. Kim Severson and Jan Byyny, veterans of 4 star competition, will be hosting the SmartPak Course Walk at the event. For Severson this will be her 3rd year leading the popular walk and for Byyny, her 2nd. Both riders will be addressing their strategies in riding the challenging cross country course from start box to finish. This year’s Course Walk will be held on Friday, April 25th. It is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. Attendees are welcome to participate and ask questions.

“We are excited to host the Course Walk for a 4th consecutive year,” said founder and SVP, Becky Minard. “We’re always looking for ways to bring meaningful experiences to our customers and giving them the opportunity to learn from two of the sport’s best riders, is one way for us to show our appreciation.”

Serving as the Selection Trial for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, this year’s Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event is sure to be bigger than ever, as competitors will be vying for a chance to join the U.S. team in China this summer.

Kim Severson is a 2004 Individual Olympic Silver Medalist as well as a Team Olympic Bronze Medalist. She is the winner of the 1999, 2002, 2004 and 2005 Rolex Kentucky CCI****. The USEA named her their Leading Lady rider in 2002, 2004 and 2005. Her famous partner of previous years, Winsome Adante, was named the 2002, 2004 and 2005 Horse of the Year by the USEA making him the second highest scoring horse in the history of U.S. eventing. Winsome Adante will be officially retired during a ceremony held prior to stadium jumping, at this year’s Rolex event.

Jan Byyny’s highlights include Team Gold Medalist and Individual Bronze Medalist at 2003 Pan Am Games; 2006 Reserve Champion Fair Hill International; 6th 2005 Rolex Kentucky CCI and 2004 Team Alternate for Athens Olympics.
