Alltech National Horse Show Welcomes Performance Working Hunter 33 and 36 in 2013

Lexington, Kentucky – March 26, 2013 – The Alltech National Horse Show, scheduled for the Alltech Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, on October 29 through November 3, 2013, is pleased to announce that the Performance Working Hunters at the 3’3” and 3’6” levels will be added to this year’s line-up.

The hunter community welcomed the Performance Working Hunter divisions at the 3’3 and 3’6” heights with open arms in 2011. The Alltech National Horse Show is very pleased to be offering the two new sections at this year’s competition. Throughout the year, the top horse and riders will vie for valuable points in the division and the opportunity to compete at this year’s horse show.

“I think it’s a really important division for older horses and younger horses to get experience. A lot of Junior Hunters and Amateur Hunters don’t want to do the 4’ or even the 3’9” so it’s a really nice division where the professionals can ride the horses and train them,” remarked Louise Serio, who currently leads the USEF standings with Bryan Baldwin’s Castle Rock.

This division has become very popular since its inception, bringing out some of the top professionals. Throughout the year, riders will be competing for points to qualify for the Alltech National Horse Show, making these divisions competitive at a high level.

The 3’3” and 3’6” divisions have also provided additional opportunities for riders, trainers and owners to show their horses. Horses that normally would not have moved past 3’3” would have been passed on to a Junior, but now they have the chance to further their career.

“I think its great and very forward thinking and we should all congratulate the Alltech National Horse Show on their forward thinking in having this section so quickly show up at a championship competition. They have realized the importance of this section to the owners,” acclaimed Bill Moroney, President of the USHJA. “They’re embracing a direction that the hunter discipline chose to go in the sport.  I think in a few years we’ve seen how very important this section has become to all the constituents. It has breathed light back into many competitions.”

The Alltech National Horse Show, for the second year in a row, was named the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame Horse of the Year. This award follows another top ranking by the North American Riders Group (NARG) in their annual ratings of North America's best equestrian events. 

The 2013 Alltech National Horse Show takes center stage on October 29 through November 3, 2013, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.  In addition to the top rated hunters and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship, the show features world-class international, open, junior and amateur-owner jumpers competing for the biggest prize money on the United States indoor tour.
