National Horse Show Trophies Again Provided by L.V. Harkness & Co

Written by: Kenneth Kraus
Client: National Horse Show
Release Date: 2014-05-19

Lexington, KY - May 18, 2014 - -The National Horse Show which gets underway on October 28 -November 2, 2014
, at the Alltech Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, has always had the reputation of presenting the most beautiful trophies in the equestrian world. This year will be no exception as the show announced today that L.V. Harkness, located in downtown Lexington, will again be providing the gorgeous custom trophies that will accompany each victory and every championship.

With a passion for horses and a love of quality, L.V. Harkness & Co. proves itself as a leader in the trophy industry. With a first-class, on-site engraving team, L.V. Harkness produces incredibly appointed awards, trophies and prizes that are distinguished honors to numerous horse racing affiliations, golf tournaments and corporations.

In 2010, L.V. Harkness was selected to create the official trophies for the World Equestrian Games. The trophies were inspired by the beauty of the horse and the spirit of the Bluegrass.

And once again, L.V. Harkness is creating the official trophies for the National Horse Show, and is sure to create trophies as unique and graceful as the event itself.

In 1819, Lamon Vanderburg Harkness purchased Walnut Hall Stock Farm near Lexington, Kentucky. He transformed Walnut Hall into the foremost Standardbred breeding and racing establishment in the world with a keen eye and uncompromising taste. When he wasn't working to improve the standardbred breed or dabbling with a little enterprise called Standard Oil, he was sailing the seven seas on his yacht named Wakiva - on the hunt for rare and fine accoutrement to adorn his homes.

Lamon Vanderburg Harkness's adventurous spirit lives on in his great-granddaughter, Meg Jewett -it's her turn at the helm. When she's not rescuing horses from slaughter, she travels the globe seeking the unusual "wants" and unique "must haves" that add so much spice to life. It is with great family pride that she shares these treasures at L.V. Harkness & Co. - the luxury retail destination she owns, named after her great-grandfather, of course.

"It's an honor to be able to provide the trophies for one of the most prestigious events in the country. We were thrilled when the show chose Lexington as their home," said Meg Jewett, the owner of L.V. Harkness & Co. "And we are happy to be part of their continued growth and success here in our community."

Nestled in downtown Lexington, L.V. Harkness & Co. indulges clients, gift-givers and brides-to-be worldwide with distinguished gifts, trophies, registries and awards. The storefront is a carefully curated blend of southern hospitality, traditional sensibilities and equestrian lifestyle. L.V. Harkness has an array of impressive brands including Meissen, Buccellati, Daum, Moser, Simon Pearce, Herend, Baccarat, and Grainger McKoy. In March of 2010 L.V. Harkness & Co. launched their lines of fine stationery and in-house printing services.

Year after year we get compliments on our trophies. That has been a tradition at the National Horse Show since our days at Madison Square Garden," said Mason Phelps, Jr., the President of the National Horse Show Association. "And now, here in Lexington, the trophies that L.V. Harkness has created for the National Horse Show are nothing short of spectacular. We're glad to have them as part of our team."

The National Horse Show will be held from October 28 -November 2, 2014, at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

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.
