[Lexington, KY] – The trophies for the oldest indoor horse show in America have arrived in the Kentucky. The Alltech National Horse Show trophy collection was transported at the Alltech Arena in the Kentucky Horse Park with a ceremonious entrance. The trophy collection that dates back to the 1700s has an estimated value of more than $1,000,000 worth of silver.

President of the National Horse Show Association, Mason Phelps explained, “How do you put value on something that is priceless? These trophies hold the history of men and women who have shaped our country for the past 128 years.”

The trophies were carefully transported by the Kentucky National Guard as they made their journey to the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington, KY. The trophy collection was previously being stored in the vaults of Tiffany and Cartier in New York City.

Upon arrival to the Kentucky Horse Park the guards were met by executive director of the Kentucky Horse Park, John Nicholson, and Kentucky’s First Lady Jane Beshear. Members from the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, city and state officials joined as well.

“Kentucky holds a genuine, interconnected bond to horses and the equine industry as a whole,” said Mrs. Beshear. “Hosting this renowned event and historical collection of trophies is a perfect partnership and yet another example of why our Commonwealth is known as the Horse Capitol of World. I encourage every Kentuckian to take the opportunity to experience some of the world class competition and visit the exceptional trophy exhibit during this year’s Alltech National Horse Show.”
