Sponsorships Provide Vital Support for Kentucky Summer Horse Shows

Lexington, KY - June 29, 2009 - Through the support of sponsorships, the upcoming Kentucky Summer Horse Shows are able to offer incredible prize money and show jumping excitement for exhibitors. The Kentucky Summer Horse Show will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park from July 22-26, and the Kentucky Summer Classic follows the week of July 29-August 2, 2009. The Kentucky Summer Horse Shows are grateful for the continued support they receive from important sponsors.

"We are very fortunate to have such great sponsors," commented Hugh Kincannon, manager for the Kentucky Summer Horse Shows. "We are thrilled to have the Hagyard Challenge Series as part of our show circuit, and we feel it's important to have enticing prize money for grand prix events, as well as the top hunter and jumper divisions."

Air 51 and Audi of Lexington are sponsoring the $40,000 Kentucky Classic Grand Prix on August 1, and Johnson Horse Transportation sponsors all Children's and Adult Jumper Classics held at the Kentucky Horse Shows. Johnson Horse Transportation is an equine shipping company that provides timely and safe transportation for show horses. Air 51 is a new FBO (Fixed Base Operator) in Lexington that provides full service for airplanes and private jets; it offers high end facilities for receiving and handling charter flights and passengers.

Air 51 and Audi of Lexington also sponsor the High Amateur-Owner and Junior Jumper divisions.

Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, one of the leading equine health care providers in the country, proudly sponsors the Hagyard Challenge Series, which offers $215,000 in prize money. The challenge is a series of seven grand prix events that are held throughout the summer at the Kentucky Horse Park. The leading rider of the series will receive a $50,000 Leading Rider Bonus, which is made possible through the support of the Holiday Inn Georgetown Hotel; Dean, Dorton, & Ford; Fifth Third Bank; Fort Dodge Animal Health; Hagyard Pharmacy; Kathleen Sullivan, CIMAŽ; Turf Town Properties; Air 51 and Audi of Lexington.

The 2009 Hagyard Challenge Series concludes in September at the Kentucky National Indoor Horse Show, and the $50,000 Leading Rider Bonus will be presented after the $50,000 CSI-W Lexington Grand Prix. All classes in the series offer the same points regardless of prize money paid.

Along with fantastic prize money, Kentucky Horse Shows LLC is able to provide the very best showing conditions for competitors. They recently resurfaced the main hunter ring (Stonelea) and large hunter schooling ring with state-of-the-art footing. The new surfaces are designed by the German company OTTO Sport- und Reitplatz GmbH, which is the same company that provided footing for the Walnut Ring last year and the new main outdoor stadium.

In 2010 the Kentucky Horse Park will play host to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and recent improvements to the park set the stage for approaching events and future competitions. The Kentucky Summer Horse Shows provide an incredible opportunity for riders to show at an outstanding venue, with stellar classes and prize money.
