New Entertainment Joins Alltech National Horse Show with Production Manager Brian Lookabill

Lexington, KY - October 14, 2013 – The 2013 Alltech National Horse Show is preparing to take horse show entertainment to a whole new level this year during the international competition, running October 29 through November 3, 2013 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Led by production manager Brian Lookabill, the show will feature both traditional entertainment, as well as new additions such as “Dueling DJs” and Parkour demonstrations by American Parkour.

“There are lot of really cool things happening this year,” explained Lookabill. “Just like we did last year, we’re going to bring back the Saddlebreds, which were a major part of the National Horse Show’s long history. But we’re also going to offer a new spin by adding a Pro/Am Style Saddlebred/Show Jumping event, where the professional Saddlebred riders will actually show over fences, and professional show jumping riders will compete on Saddlebreds. And the great part is that they’ll be scored as a team for ribbons.”

New performances will also be added to the competition’s evening sessions to keep the crowd entertained throughout the night. “We’re going to make sure we have high energy, and feel good music throughout the week,” stated Lookabill. “We’ll have Dueling DJs, which means at certain times a couple of DJs will perform at once and they’ll play off of each other so to offer music and a visual entertainment during the night events.

The next addition to the Alltech National Horse Show will be Parkour demonstrations by American Parkour. “Parkour is actually a sport where athletes are able to overcome any obstacle that they come across: whether it be scaling a wall, jumping off of a tall wall, or building, or even over a fence, or horse jump.” noted Lookabill. “They flip, roll, and do acrobatic maneuvers. These guys have performed in music videos, commercials, and at major events around the world. They’ll definitely amaze, because they do things that you don’t think people have the ability to do. It’s very high energy and very exciting to watch.”

Lookabill concluded, “On top of all of that I’m excited as always to have the best horses and riders in the world coming out. That is of course the centerpiece of it all, and I think it will all come together for a really fun horse show that builds on a 130 year tradition, while getting better every year.”

With over $850,000 in prize money offered, this year’s show has been designated a CSI-W 5* show by the FEI. The International Open Jumpers will compete for $530,000 in prize money, while the top rated hunter sections have a total purse of $205,000. Meanwhile, $100,000 is offered to the Amateur/Owner and Junior Jumpers and the American Saddlebreds will compete for over $20,000.

The Alltech National Horse Show, for the second year in a row, received a top ranking from NARG, the North American Riders Group and was named the Show Hunter Hall of Fame Horse Show of the Year in back to back years.

The Alltech National Horse Show returns to the Alltech Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, on October 29 through November 3, 2013.
