Kentucky Fall Classic Returns to the Horse Park

The UPHA Chapter 9 Kentucky Fall Classic Horse Show is back at the Kentucky Horse Park in the Alltech Indoor Arena after a year away while the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games were being held.

The Kentucky Fall Classic is proud to serve as host for the Bluegrass Futurity and the Equine Services Roadster Cup which will be featured during the Thursday evening performance.  Michael Craghead from Fresno, California will serve as judge for the show.  Michael will be joined by Kim Crumpler and Josh Greer to judge the Bluegrass Futurity and Equine Roadster Cup classes.

Musical Freestyle Equitation is a new exciting class added this year and will be performed on Friday afternoon.  There will be a welcome party Wednesday evening after the performance sponsored by Cardinal Hill Hospital and Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital will sponsor Friday evening’s Exhibitor’s Party.

The show benefits Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and will feature special guests for the opening ceremony.  Kentucky Fall Classic is proud that it has donated more than $110,000 to Cardinal Hill over the years.

Don’t miss the exciting Saddlebreds, Hackneys and Roadsters at the Kentucky Fall Classic…and enjoy the scenery of the Kentucky Horse Park while you visit our wonderful fall competition with some of the best horses in the country!
