Lexington, KY – October 10, 2014 – The 2014 National Horse Show announced today that Halloween night is also Barn Night at this year’s show. The show returns for a fifth year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, on October 28 -November 2, 2014.

Young horse fans and budding equestrians are invited to join us for the second annual Barn Night at the National Horse Show, Friday, October 31, 2014 at the Alltech Arena in the Kentucky Horse Park. During this fun Halloween competition, prizes will be awarded to various youth and equestrian groups that arrive in the best costumes and exhibit the best spirit during the evening’s equestrian competition, which features the Chansonette Farm $45,000 Gambler’s Choice Costume Class at 7pm.

Prizes will be awarded in a number of different categories, including the grand prize, a fancy new golf cart, sponsored by the fine folks at Southern Lawn and Equipment. Another lucky barn will win a ton of feed from Hallway Feeds (wow!) and yet another barn team will win a wheelbarrow chock full of prizes courtesy of Dover Saddlery.

The golf cart will be awarded to the Largest Group with a unique theme or the best creative costumes. Prizes will also be awarded for Best Group Spirit, Best Group Costume and Best Individual Costume.
