Taylor Harris Named Official Insurance Agency for Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition

Written by: Kenneth Kraus
Client: National Horse Show
Release Date: 2011-05-05

Lexington, KY - May 5, 2011 - The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, announced today that Taylor Harris Insurance Services has been named the Official Insurance Agency for this year's event.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th edition, will be staged at the Alltech Arena at the world-renowned Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, site of last year's Alltech World Equestrian Games.

Taylor, Harris Insurance Services (THIS) was founded in 1987 to provide specialized insurance for all types of equine risk.

"Taylor Harris is very excited about being involved in the transition of the Alltech National Horse Show to the Kentucky Horse Park with its world class facility and we look forward to a long relationship," said Taylor Harris President, Michael Taylor. "We specifically have a strategy to be involved in sponsoring events in which junior riders participate. This is an obvious sponsorship for us and we are proud to be able to contribute something to this historic equestrian contest."

Taylor Harris Chairman, William Weeks added, "It is a great honor for Taylor Harris to be involved with the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington. The show is a great opportunity for us to market our agency and our two underwriters, Lloyds and Great American. We are very excited about being a part of the return of the premier national indoor final, the Alltech National Horse Show."

Whether the needs are straightforward or complex, for one horse or many, Taylor Harris works with their clients to make sure they are equipped with the insurance coverage that's right for each individual case. THIS places all policies with the highest rated and most secure insurance carriers, which are also selected for their prompt and reliable claims settlement.

Their goal is protection for your horses at all stages of life and peace of mind for you.

"Taylor Harris has a unique advantage in the equestrian industry in that we represent two top underwriters: Lloyds of London and Great American," Taylor went on to say. "Most agencies only represent one. THIS is therefore able to offer a more flexible range of policies to suit individual clients' needs."

"Simply stated, Taylor Harris is a first class company," said Alltech National Horse Show President Mason Phelps, Jr. "Taylor Harris has been at the forefront of equine insurance for years and their support of various equestrian events, like the Taylor Harris Children's Medal, is unparalleled. We are delighted to have them join us at the inaugural event in Kentucky."

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, will be held from November 2 - 6, 2011, at the beautiful, new Alltech Indoor Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

In addition to hosting the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals, the show will feature a complete schedule of 'AA'-rated hunter divisions, a big money Open Jumper division with a major Grand Prix, and as always, the signature event of the National Horse Show, the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals.

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.
