National Horse Show – Lexington, Kentucky

The Oz crowd was present and accounted for at the 2011 Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, Kentucky.

This was the 128th year of the National Horse Show.  Historically, the show was held in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden.  Starting in 1990, the event found difficulty finding  a home that suited it and made sense.  It had become too expensive to host it at the Garden.  It moved to the Meadowlands in New Jersey, back to the Garden, to Washington DC, to the Piers on the west side of NYC and then finally to Syracuse (with some events held in Wellington, Florida).  So…… you can imagine how pleased we are that the National Horse Show seems to have found a new home.  All the exhibitors loved it and the organizing committee was pleased as well.

Paige Hamilton and Madison Cameron competed in the 2011 ASPCA Maclay National Championships and Bailey Smith joined us to cheer them on.  We ate like queens!  Here we are at Bellini’s, a fabulous Italian restaurant in Lexington.
