The 4* 3-Day Event held at the Kentucky Horse Park the last weekend of every April is as good as Christmas morning to horse lovers. Even though it is hard to drop “Rolex” from the vernacular, as the Event was fondly referred to for more years than not, the excitement of a new title sponsor, Land Rover, ignited even more anticipation than sunrise on December 25th.
There is simply nothing better than crisp, dew-soaked morning in the heart of Bluegrass Country. As we drove into the Trade Fair this morning, the sun bounced off the white Lexington fencing and you could practically feel Spring’s arrival.
Many Kentuckians consider the first Saturday of May to be the unofficial start of Spring; fans of this event would argue otherwise.
The Trade Fair was hopping as early as 9 am with a packed house of merchants selling all the goods with incredible deals. In case you’re wondering, the Fair seems more robust than ever and the attendance seemed steady. Lots of visitors stopped to say hello and take a peek at what we have shaking on the development 45 minutes west of the Horse Park.
This event is always something we look forward to as Equestrian Lakes offers everything an equine enthusiast could desire, and it’s fun to spread the word. After all, we’re just as much a horse lover, admiring spectator, shopping enthusiast as we are a supporter of such a prestigious competition.
Per tradition, we are raffling off Equestrian Lakes branded saddle pads each day. Come see us, hang out, catch up and definitely register (for free) to win a saddle pad. We are booth 183.
If you are visiting from out of town and would enjoy a tour of Kentucky’s premier equestrian community, give us a shout or complete the form below and we’ll make sure we make arrangements for you. There is no better time to imagine your life here.
You may even say it’s like Christmas in April.
