A little bit of history is going to be written when some of the country’s top riders meet in the heart of New York City for the Central Park Horse Show, presented by Rolex, on Sept. 18-21.

Seating for the event is very limited, with only a little more than 1,300 seats available for each night. Want to be there? Here’s your last chance for free tickets.

Like many people my age, I was blessed to know a New York City that had a National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden. I was even more blessed to have competed there. There was truly nothing like it. In fact, it was surreal.

It's not often that you get to see LIVE show jumping on a major sports network, but on Sept. 18 at 7:00 p.m. EST, the $210,000 Central Park Grand Prix will be broadcast live! Make sure to tune in and support horse sports by boosting the ratings and telling the television industry that we want to see more horse sports!

Manhattan has never been the most natural setting for a hack or a handy hunter class, but this bustling New York City borough still boasts a unique and rich horse show history.

The uninitiated clustered four and five deep along wooden sawhorses lining the makeshift show ring.

They stood on tiptoes, children on shoulders, to catch a glimpse of the illustrious riders and famous horses soaring over jumps.

The skyline of Manhattan stood in crisp contrast to Central Park’s Sheep Meadow, where the last brightly colored autumn leaves clung to the trees.

When Grand Prix dressage star Steffen Peters received a phone call from Akiko Yamazaki, the owner of his famous Olympic and World Games partner Ravel, he had no idea the conversation would land him back on the legendary, retired Dutch Warmblood to prepare for the inaugural Central Park Horse Show presented by Rolex, to be held Sept. 18-21 in New York City.

Tickets for the Central Park Horse Show Presented by Rolex, the first-ever, outdoor four-day equestrian sporting event coming to New York City from Sept. 18-21 are now available.
