Saddlebred Stars & Seersucker Stripes



The American Saddlebred Museum invites you to spend a day at the Museum! Join us and our special guests at the Showplace for Saddlebreds on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday, July 8, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a champagne brunch honoring the Equitation Triple Crown winners. Meet the equitation stars and their trainers while viewing classic summer fashions for both men and women. Rodes of Louisville will present classic looks for men by Haspel, the prominent New Orleans based men’s clothing company that is renowned for its use of seersucker, and is also graciously serving as a brunch sponsor. Draper James will provide Southern infused women’s fashion inspired by its founder, actress Reese Witherspoon, and modeled by familiar faces from within our industry. 

Keeping with the Southern theme, the star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm, Patricia Altschul, will be signing copies of her bestselling book The Art of Southern Charm. Fashion maven, Saddlebred enthusiast and Museum trustee Carson Kressley will be on hand to sign his latest, Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big?

Guests will enjoy the Museum’s current exhibit, Legends of the Saddlebred World: The Lives & Times of Tom & Donna Moore, which features photographs, paintings, trophies, and assorted memorabilia, as well as a short film on the pair. Art from the 2017 Youth, Young Adult and Adult Art Contest will be on display, with many of the pieces available for purchase, and there will also be a special savings event in our Gift Shop. 

Starting at 1:00, guests may visit the Rolex Arena, site of the 2018 Lexington Junior League Horse Show, for dessert and an informative tour.

The event is free to current Museum members and $10 for non-members. Members please R.S.V.P. to hello@asbmuseum.org or by phone 859-259-2746, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. M - F. Non-members may purchase tickets online at asbmuseum.org or by phone.
