The Lake Placid Horse Shows include two American Grand Prix Association (AGA) Grand Prix Series events—the Budweiser Grand Prix of Lake Placid CSI*** presented by RV Sales of Broward on Sunday, July 1, and the Hermès Grand Prix CSI*** on Saturday, July 7. Both grand prix events are FEI-sanctioned, offering riders the opportunity to earn valuable points on the international rider rankings. These grand prix events always attract a world-class lineup of show jumping’s best horses and riders, including Olympic stars Margie Goldstein Engle, Anne Kursinski and McLain Ward. In addition to its two grand prix events, the Lake Placid and I Love New York Horse Shows offer North American League, Washington International Horse Show, World Champion Hunter Rider, and Show Jumping Hall of Fame Series classes.
