The youngest Thoroughbred competing at this weekend’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, Ky., will be the 8-year-old mare Breakin’ All The Rules.
Last October, the 16.3 hand daughter of Due Date and her longtime partner, owner/rider Ellen Doughty-Hume, received the Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue Award for being the highest-placed American Thoroughbred at the CCI3*-L during the inaugural Maryland Five Star event at Fair Hill. They placed 13th on a double clear cross country round, adding only a single rail to their dressage score of 33.9.
“She’s a pretty phenomenal mare,” said Doughty-Hume, herself a multi-year veteran of the Kentucky Three Day’s highest level with Sir Oberon, a ⅞ Thoroughbred (their best finish was 14th in 2019). “She absolutely loves jumping and cross country, she’s really brave and has such natural scope and talent.”
