Freedman's To Host Inaugural Junior League Kick Off Event

Midway, KY – Freedman’s is hosting their first ever Lexington Junior League Horse Show Kick Off Party on Sunday July 6 at their Midway, KY location at 7 P.M.  All are invited to help launch their Annual Gift Card event with a Town Branch Bourbon tasting, light hors d’oeuvres, and wine.  Peruse through their latest hand and travel bag collections, shop for all your tack or harness needs, or be personally fitted for your new World Cup Super Grip saddle by one of their saddle fitting experts.

With operating hours from 10-5, Freedman’s will open every day during the Lexington Junior League Horse Show.  Look for your gift card to be used during our weeklong event being passed out in the grandstand or at your barn’s tack room.  The more you spend, the more you save!  Stop by to see renowned sculptor Alexa King giving live demonstrations throughout the week.  

The Kick Off Event will be benefitting the United Professional Horsemen’s Association Classics Program, with five percent of all harness and saddle sales going towards the illustrious event.  Designed to promote interest in young horses, the UPHA Classics Program has contributed greatly to the growth of the show horse industry by creating a first class showcase and generating a larger prize money return.  Freedman’s is an official UPHA supplier and long time supporter of their many programs.
