Oh hay, Lexingtonians. 👋 July is here, and so is the world’s largest outdoor American Saddlebred show, happening right here in Lexington from Mon., July 11-Sat., July 16 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

The Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show continues to shape the Saddlebred and local community. To date, the event has raised $4 million for charitable and civic organizations + generated over $5 million in revenue for local merchants. Fun fact: It’s also the first of three shows that make up the Saddlebred “triple crown.”

This year’s show will bring six days of live equine sports and 1000+ world-recognized competitors to our area (so get ready to make some new friends). Apart from the mane events, the show will include a Gallery Hop featuring art by Tyler Robertson as well as a funded agency night to introduce local partner organizations. Opt for a more kid-friendly experience on Family Day complete with a dog show, stick horse race, face painting + crafts.*
