KY Spring Premier - New Date, Location and Classes

As the flowers begin to blossom and a new season begins, the KY Spring Premier Horse Show is looking forward to "sprouting" some participation by making some major changes to the previous year’s show. In particular, the show has been moved to the new state of the art indoor facility at the KY Horse Park in Lexington, KY which will house some of the World Equestrian Games later this year. The new arena, footing and stabling is expected to enhance the experience of the participants and their horses. Other changes will include changing the dates to April 14-16 (to avoid Derby conflicts) and the addition of new breed sections.

The three-day full schedule includes a wide range of performance classes for Saddlebreds; Hackneys; Road Horses. New breed divisions added for the 2010 show comprise of: Morgans; National Show Horses, Half and Full Bred Arabians; and Modern Shetlands. Exhibitions will also be offered featuring the Miniature Horse. And, for the equitation enthusiasts, the event will host a USEF Saddle Seat Medal qualifier, the National Horse Show Good Hands class and UPHA Challenge Cup and Walk/Trot Challenge Cup.
