The 128th National Horse Show will be held November 2- 6, 2011, at the new Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. In additional to a full set of ‘AA’-rated hunter divisions, there will be Junior and Amateur Jumper Division with a Show Jumping Hall of Fame Classic, as well as Open Jumper divisions with a Grand Prix event. As always, the signature event of the National Horse Show will be the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals. This prestigious horse show will be managed by Leo Conroy and Hugh Kincannon of Kentucky Horse Shows, LLC.

One of the highlight events during the 128th National Horse Show will be the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals. Junior riders compete throughout the year to qualify for the finals, which will include a warm-up, and will be limited to 200 entries determined by regional qualifying events. Kip Rosenthal and Cynthia Hankins will judge this year’s top junior riders as they compete for the coveted title as the winner of the Maclay.

The ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals have been held since 1933, and its winners are some of the biggest names in equestrian sport. Previous winners include Olympians: William Steinkraus (1941), Frank Chapot (1948), George Morris (1952), J. Michael Plumb (1957), Conrad Homfeld (1967), Leslie Burr Howard (1972), and Peter Wylde (1982).

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 aide to many worthwhile charities.
