Release Date: 2011-05-26

Lexington, KY - May 27, 2011 - The Alltech National Horse Show announced today that this year's debut event in Kentucky will be designated a CSI4* - W and the featured class, the $250,000 Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix, will be a 2011/2012 FEI World Cup qualifying event

The USEF Competition Department confirmed the designation of CSI4*-W; Lexington, KY in a letter today.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th edition, will be staged at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, site of last year's Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. The show will be held from November 2 - 6, 2011.

This year's show will offer over $600,000 in total prize money, including a huge Open Jumper division. "We're going to be offering $370,000 to the Open Jumpers, including the $250,000 Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix," said Show Manager Hugh Kincannon. "That brings this show on par or better than any show here in North America, or any indoor show anywhere in the world. We'll have $50,000 for the Junior and Amateur Owner Jumpers as well. In the hunter divisions, we're going to offer the most significant amount of prize money for any horse show anywhere in the United States."

"We are thrilled to receive this important designation from the FEI and the United States Equestrian Federation," added National Horse Show of America, Ltd. President Mason Phelps, Jr. "this makes our Kentucky debut that much more exciting, and the fact that our main event will be a World Cup class, adds even more to an already prestigious presentation."

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.
