Lexington, KY – May 20, 2013 – The 2013 Alltech National Horse Show announced today that for the third year in a row, the Saturday evening performance will benefit the United States Equestrian Team Foundation. During the Saturday evening performance, featuring the show’s main event, the $250,000 Alltech Grand Prix, the horse show will share fifty percent of the night’s gate receipts with the USET Foundation.

The third edition of the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, Kentucky, is scheduled for October 29 – November 3, 2013. The show will once again be held at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. For the second year in a row, the Alltech National Horse Show was named the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame’s Horse Show of the Year and was again named as one of NARG’s (North American Riders Group) top rated North American events.

The United States Equestrian Team Foundation supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international high performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. Its main tasks are to support athletes, promote international excellence and build for the future.

Bonnie Jenkins, Executive Director of the USET Foundation, spoke of the successful and important partnership. “We are so grateful to the Alltech National Horse Show for highlighting and supporting the important role of the USET Foundation. With so many riders who have represented the United States in Nations Cup competition, as well as the young up and coming talent that will be competing on Grand Prix night, makes it a perfect fit reflecting our core mission of supporting athletes, promoting international excellence and building for the future. Continuing the tradition and partnership of the USET and the National Horse Show is something we feel privileged and grateful to be part of and thank them for helping us achieve our mission,” she said.

“We are excited to continue the worthwhile tradition of the National Horse Show supporting the activities of the United States Equestrian Team Foundation,” said Mason Phelps, Jr., President of the National Horse Show Association. “The Alltech National Horse Show, for the past two years, was honored to make a major commitment to the USET Foundation. Those contributions last year were especially important for the team’s effort in London. Now it’s time to look ahead and with so many events and championships on the horizon, we are proud to once again reaffirm that commitment to the USET Foundation.”

“Saturday night at the Alltech National Horse Show has become a very important part of the USET Foundation’s fund raising efforts. We are grateful and appreciative to the Alltech National Horse Show for once again including us on Saturday night,” said USET Foundation Development Committee Co-Chairman Bruce Duchossois. “Each year the show has gotten better and better and now in its third year, all of us at the USET Foundation are honored to be a part of this great tradition again. We thank Alltech and the National Horse Show for their generosity.” 

The 2013 Alltech National Horse Show takes center stage on October 29 – 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.

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.
