AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Brice Carr
The 2009 Kentucky Spring Premier Horse Show will be held Thursday, April 30, through Saturday, May 2, 2009, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. Brian Reimer of Turin, GA, will judge the Saddlebred, Hackney and Friesian classes, with Katie Case handling the Academy division. Following the success of last year, the open stakes will be held Friday night with the amateur championships on Saturday night.
The Kentucky Spring Premier is proud to be the first show to participate in the added money Kentucky Saddlebred Breeders and Owners Association (KSOBA) class this year. The Kentucky Spring Premier’s Fine Harness Open Championship has been chosen as the first class of the season.
The Spring Premier is also a member of the Equine Roadster Cup Incentive Program. Points are offered for open and amateur Roadster classes if the entry is eligible for this $10,000 Added Point Incentive Program.
Additional classes include the Amateur Fine Harness Championship, a junior exhibitor park class and an Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Park Championship.
A Kentucky Derby party will once again be held before Saturday’s evening session on the area next to the show ring. With the help of Richfield Video and a large screen television, the Derby will be easily viewable. The Blue Willow Youth Club will be providing fun games and entertainment for junior exhibitors of all ages. Barbecue will be provided along with a cash bar for the adults.
With the coming of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the Horse Park is embarking on a huge renovation. New arenas, both covered and outdoor, are being added, as well as new and improved stabling.
