New Show Slated For Kentucky State Fairgrounds



The inaugural HOOF Charity Horse Show will be held July 21 in the covered outdoor riding arena at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds. Betsy Webb has partnered with Louisville’s non-profit organization HOOFKY, which offers horsemanship camps for at-risk and underprivileged kids, giving them the opportunity to spend their summers with horses. All the profits from this horse show will go directly to HOOFKY, a 501(2)3 non-profit organization.

The show will be held in the arena where world’s champions work. That back ring is covered and has great footing. Warm up will be available in Stopher Walk and there will be plenty of stabling right there at the show ring.

A morning session will be begin at 8:00 for Academy classes, with a Performance session slated to begin at 3:00 p.m. The performance division offers lots of pleasure and novice classes as well as a full slate of classes for those trainers needing County Fair qualifications. The HOOF Charity Horse Show is registered with the Kentucky Association of Fairs and Horse Shows (KAFHS) and also the ASHA.

Exhibitors are urged to get their stall requests in and order their box seats. There will be a limited number of boxes available with eight seats per box.

For more information go to the Facebook page at HOOF Horse Show or call Betsy Webb at (502) 477-0830.
