Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show Selects Kentucky Horse Park as 2018 Venue



The Junior League of Lexington is proud to announce enhanced seating options for spectators at the 2018 Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Rolex Arena. 

A world class venue responsible for hosting the 2010 World Equestrian Games, the Rolex Arena is also home to the Rolex Three-Day Event, the USHJA International Hunter Derby, and many more top equestrian events. For the Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show, there will be seating options including ringside boxes, infield boxes, terrace tables and the newly created Horsemen’s Lounge. Those who have held box seats at the Junior League show have been given first preference on the closest equivalent to their previous seats.

There will be an increased number of ringside boxes available and those who did not previously hold seats will have the option of reserving new boxes. 

The Junior League of Lexington has also added an additional hospitality option, the Horsemen’s Lounge. This area will be open to those that purchase tickets, either nightly or for the duration of the week. It will include a dinner buffet and two beverage tickets. There will be open seating and an option for cash bar. 

With the change of venue, the Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show will remain the first leg of the American Saddlebred Triple Crown and the largest outdoor Saddlebred Horse Show. This signature equestrian event attracts over 30,000 spectators, with out-of-town visitors generating approximately $5 million in revenue for the Lexington community each year. Nearly 1,000 exhibitors travel from all over the world to compete for $70,000 in prize money.  Most importantly, the Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show will continue to provide the high level of hospitality for which the Junior League of Lexington is known.
