Our staff is readily accessible to answer questions and assist the attendees with any of their needs. We have a reputation for going the extra mile – without add–on charges and truly becoming an extension of your organization and event.”

“We welcome Connections Housing to the National Horse Show,” said Mason Phelps, the President of the National Horse Show Association. “This is a company that has a long history of success and their reputation throughout the industry is excellent. We hope that they can be of help to those competitors and families joining us in Lexington this fall.”

Connections Housing Sports has worked successfully with such shows as the Capital Challenge, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, the Washington International, the Southeast Medal Finals, the Classic Company and Showplace Productions, to name just a few.

“We are so excited by the opportunity to work with National Horse Show.  We have been handling equestrian events and travel for over 15 years.  We truly go over and above to ensure everything is taken care of for you at the hotel of your choice before you arrive, so that you can focus on your competition”.
