Get ready for the Kentucky Summer Horse Shows, which will be held at the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, from August 1-5, 2007, and the Kentucky Summer Classic will follow from August 8-12, 2007.
The two-week series will host two $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic Grand Prix events, as well as the $40,000 Kentucky Summer Grand Prix and the $40,000 Kentucky Classic Grand Prix, which is a member event of the American Grand Prix Association's grand prix series. The $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic Grand Prix events are part of the Hagyard Challenge Series, which features $170,000 in prize money and runs throughout the summer at the horse park. The Kentucky Summer Horse Shows are also qualifying events for the Washington International Horse Show Championships and 2007 North American League finals.
The picturesque Kentucky Horse Park offers ample stabling, showing and riding space for exhibitors, and the facility is the future site of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Encompassed by scenic horse farms and rolling hills, competitors enjoy riding across the vast cross-country fields and showing in the impressive Johnson Grand Prix Arena. Located near downtown Lexington, the area provides convenient dining and shopping for horse show patrons. Produced by Kentucky Horse Shows, LLC, the Kentucky Summer Horse Shows offer first class competition for equestrians in the horse capitol of the world.
