Lexington, KY - July 13, 2011 - The Alltech National Horse Show today welcomed two exciting new sponsors to the Open Jumper division and at the same time announced that prize money for this year's event, already at an outstanding level, will be increased even more.

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

This year's debut 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.

Joining forces with show this year are two key sponsors, Double H Farm and Mr. and Mrs. Hunter Harrison and Spy Coast Farm and owners Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lourie.

The two sponsorships add an addition $65,000 in prize money to the mix and bring the total prize money offered at the show to nearly $700,000.

The Open Jumper division alone will now be worth $435,000.

"With the $250,000 Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix as the centerpiece to this incredible Open Jumper division, this show is on par with any show in North America, or any indoor show anywhere in the world," said Show Manager Hugh Kincannon.

Mr. and Mrs. Hunter Harrison and their Double H Farms will sponsor Thursday's Jump-Off class and with their support the prize money for that class will increase from $50,000 to $75,000.

The Friday Faults Converted speed class, now generously sponsored by Spy Coast Farm and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lourie, will see an increase in prize money from $35,000 to $60,000.

The Alltech National Horse Show also announced that the Welcome Stake, originally scheduled to offer $35,000 has been bumped up to $50,000.

"The Harrison and Lourie families have been dynamic supporters of this sport for years," said National Horse Show of America, Ltd. President Mason Phelps, Jr. "We are honored that they have decided to join forces with us in Lexington for the Alltech National Horse Show."

"We are so excited about the huge amount of prize money we're offering in our first year," Phelps went on to say. "To be honest, I'm a bit overwhelmed and humbled by the support the equestrian community has shown this great event. It's going to be one heck of a debut!"

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.

This year's show, designated CSI4*-W, will feature a complete schedule of 'AA'-rated hunter divisions, including the Pony Lane Farm High Performance Hunter section. Also on the agenda, a big money Open Jumper division highlighted by the $250,000 Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix, an FEI World Cup qualifying event. $100,000 will be up for grabs for the Junior and Amateur Jumper divisions, including the $50,000 SJHOF Junior/Amateur Championships, sponsored by Sleepy P, Chansonette and Deerridge Farm. The final Sunday is highlighted by the signature event of the National Horse Show, the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals, presented by C.M. Hadfield's Saddlery.

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.
