Following the Alltech National Horse Show’s debut at the Kentucky Horse Park last November, the show was voted the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame 2011 Horse Show of the Year. The honor came as a result of voting by Hall of Fame members, comprised of exhibitors, owners, trainers and riders in the equestrian industry.
"The National Horse Show's move to the Kentucky Horse Park in 2011, the Alltech sponsorship, the management and production team, and the hard work of a very dedicated show committee all combined to present an event that was obviously very popular with exhibitors and voters,” said Walter J. Lee, President of the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame.
The Alltech National Horse Show will be inducted into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame during the special induction ceremonies and dinner on May 29 at the Marion Cricket Club in Haverford, Pa.
The second edition of the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington is set for Oct. 31-Nov. 4. The show will once again be held at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.
