Never has it been so easy to be part of the Lake Placid Horse Shows as this summer. The horse shows return to the beautiful North Elba Showgrounds, June 23-July 5, and bring with them the same great traditions of years past as well as some new and exciting twists.
While many spectators flock to the popular Lake Placid Horse Shows each year, just as many watch parts of the horse show on the Lake Placid Adelphia Cable Television System's Coffee at the Horse Show
The program, created and hosted by Lake Placid personality Rik Cassidy, is co-hosted by Kim Andreesen, Steve Williams and Lake Placid Horse Show Public Relations Director Marty Bauman. It provides viewers with select competition scenes and updates as well as live interviews and special features on every aspect of the horse shows, including the riders, trainers, sponsors, vendors and Lake Placid village events. Coffee at the Horse Show
airs live every day of horse show competition from 9:00-9:30 a.m. and is repeated several times each evening. This year, for the first time, fans of the Lake Placid Horse Shows and Coffee at the Horse Show
will be able to watch it any time they want by visiting www.ultrasport.tv
. Viewing the program online is free, and is available at just the click of a button.
"We are so excited to add a new twist to one of our favorite traditions," said Lori Martin, Executive Director of the Lake Placid Horse Show Association. "Coffee at the Horse Show
has been an integral part of our event for the last six years, and has developed a very strong following among Lake Placid residents and those in town just for the shows. I am so happy that we can offer everybody the chance to watch it whenever they want, especially those who might not be able to join us at the shows this summer. It's a great way to keep connected to the horse shows."
"The Lake Placid Horse Show is the highlight of my summer," said program host and creator Cassidy. "Coffee at the Horse Show
allows us to present the horse show with a different perspective. We have gotten so much positive feedback about the broadcasts each year that it only makes sense to take the next step and have Coffee at the Horse Show
