American Saddlebred Five-Gaited Swap Premieres at Alltech National Horse Show Tomorrow

Written by: Kendall Bierer
Client: National Horse Show http://www.nhs.org
Release Date: 2013-10-29

Lexington, KY – October 29, 2013 – Tomorrow evening, there will be a game-changing event at the Alltech National Horse Show, 130th edition. It will be a night to remember, as four World’s Champion American Saddlebred trainers will team up with the top-tier hunter and showjumping professionals to compete in the Five-Gaited Swap Wednesday evening in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

It will be a spectacle to watch the stars of each discipline swap places, and tackle a new feat in their riding careers. American Saddlebred trainers Clark Clouse, Melinda Moore, Melissa Moore and Stephanie Sedlacko will ride over a hunter course set with 3-foot obstacles, as Grand Prix Show Jumpers McLain Ward and Laura Kraut along with professional hunter riders Jennifer Alfano and Hunt Tosh ride to a new rhythm—the five-gaited stride.

The Five-Gaited Swap is new to the Alltech National Horse Show this year, but two of the hunter/jumper competitors are not new to being pushed outside of their comfort zone. In fact, McLain Ward won the Five-Gaited Special Class at the Devon Horse Show in May of this year, and Alfano ranked close behind to take the third place. The class brings the disciplines together, promoting the horses and sportsmanship in tandem.

 “I thought it was great,” Alfano reminisced. “It was so much fun, and I appreciate them letting us do it. I look forward to giving it another shot during Wednesday’s event. It is a very unusual class, but it is definitely a highlight, and something I am thrilled they brought to the Alltech National Horse Show.”

The Five-Gaited Swap will commence immediately after the Hackney Pony Amateur Stake comes to a conclusion. Each American Saddlebred trainer will be paired with one of the show jumping riders and together, the team with the best-combined score will take not only the bragging rights, but also the winning share of the prize money.

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 is currently running at the Alltech Arena in Lexington, KY, through November 3, 2013.
