Lexington, KY – Oct. 7, 2015 – The 2015 CP National Horse Show returns to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, on Oct. 27–Nov. 1, 2015.

This year’s show will once again feature the nation’s finest hunters in competition with the most significant amount of prize money of any show in the country. This is all made possible by the generous supporters who have stepped forward to sponsor the various hunter divisions at the CP National Horse Show.

Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth Garber will sponsor and present the $15,000 Green Conformation Hunter division, while the $15,000 Regular Conformation Hunter division will be sponsored and presented by the Wheeler family.

A retirement ceremony for the legendary hunters Lyle, Hilton and Dance Away will be conducted at the end of hunter competition Saturday and is sponsored by Don Stewart Stables, Inc.

The CP National Horse Show, for the fourth year in a row, received a top ranking from the North American Riders Group (NARG), and was again named the Show Hunter Hall of Fame Horse Show of the Year in back to back years.

In addition to hosting top-rated hunters and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship, the show features world-class international, open, junior and amateur owner jumpers competing for the biggest prize money on the United States indoor tour. With $810,000 in prize money offered, this year’s show has been designated a CSI-W 5* by the FEI. The CP National Horse Show was chosen as one of only seven events that will comprise the East Coast division of the all-new Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League and it will feature the $250,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Lexington, sponsored by CP and presented by Copernicus Stables, LLC, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.

The international open jumpers will compete for over a half a million dollars in prize money, while the top-rated open hunter divisions have a total purse of $195,000. Additionally, the amateur owner and U25 jumper divisions will award an unprecedented $130,000.

Founded in 1883 at the original Madison Square Garden, the National Horse Show is America’s oldest indoor horse show, firmly established as a major fixture on the national and international sports and social event calendars. The National Horse Show Association’s primary activity is the annual production of the National Horse Show and all ancillary events. Over the years, the National Horse Show has provided financial aid to many worthwhile charities.
