View Full Version : Recs for Hunter/Jumper barns in Lexington, KY

Apr. 8, 2011, 10:29 AM

I was wondering if someone could tell me about the hunter/jumper scene in Lexington, KY. Everything from how the local, C and A rated shows are and are there good trainers in the area. I like to bring along youngsters and start them at smaller shows them move them up as they progress which is why I'm interested in everything from the local shows to the As.

I've looked on the KHJA website and there doesn't seem to be many barns listed in the area. Is there a need for good Hunter/Jumper barns/trainers in the area?

Thanks for the information and PM me if you prefer.

There are TONS of top trainers who set up shop around Lexington for half the year- too many to list. Many own farms in the area, and many others rent for 6 months or so and show at the horse park all summer. Lots of people do 6 months in Wellington and 6 months in Lexington.

I don't know how many trainers are there all year, but in the summer, it's pretty crowded.
