Lexington, KY - May 30, 2014 -  The National Horse Show returns to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY on October 28 -November 2, 2014, and once again, one of Lexington's most popular and successful car dealerships, Audi of Lexington, returns as the Official Car of the 2014 National Horse Show. In addition, they will be presenting the highly competitive Leading Jumper Rider award again this year.

This year's show will offer over $850,000 in total prize money, including a huge Open Jumper division. The International and Open Jumpers will feature $560,000 in total prize money, including the $250,000 National Horse Show Grand Prix, designated a CSI-W 5*, an all-important FEI East Coast League World Cup qualifying event. In the Junior and Amateur Owner Jumpers Division, there will be $100,000 in prize money, and $200,000 in prize money will be offered in the AA rated Hunter Division.   

One again, Audi of Lexington will provide, for a year, the use of a brand new Audi Q7 to the Leading Open Jumper Rider at this year's show. Previous winners include Great Britain's London Gold Medalist Nick Skelton, American stars Lauren Hough and Christine McCrea in 2012 and last year, Belgium's Nicola Philippaerts. The Audi Q7 will be awarded to this year's Leading Open Jumper Rider following the main event, the $250,000 National Horse Show Grand Prix on Saturday night, November 1st.

Audi of Lexington, located at 3000 Pink Pigeon Parkway in Lexington, is a premier dealer of Audi automobiles.

With Audi, progress is the driving force behind everything they do. It is the result of meticulous design, exhaustive testing and inspired engineering. And ultimately, it is the birthright of every car they build. This year, a new generation of progress is taking hold at Audi of Lexington.

"The National Horse Show has become a perfect fit for Audi," said Audi of Lexington's Alex Boone. "The Show continues to grow and is one of the top rated shows in the United States. The Kentucky Horse Park, as a venue, could not be better and the people are passionate about their sport and life in general."

"We are so glad to have Audi of Lexington back with us for this year's National Horse Show," said Mason Phelps, the President of the National Horse Show Foundation. "Alex Boone and his family have always been huge supporters of equestrian events at the Kentucky Horse Park and we're honored that they've chosen once again to support the National Horse Show."

The National Horse Show is one of the North American Riders Group's (NARG) top-rated American equestrian events and the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame's Horse Show of the Year for the third year in a row.

The 2014 National Horse Show takes center stage on October 28 -November 2, 2014 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

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.
