The first Saturday in May brought a few showers and lot of smiles at Equestrian Lakes’ Derby party for residents and guests. With more than 120 in attendance, there was no shortage of big hats and sun dresses, despite the lack of sunshine.

Adults and children alike showed up ready to eat, drink and merrily cheer on their horse during a full afternoon of racing projected on two large screens. The atmosphere was energetic with friendly intensity as guests hoped the horse they drew was a jackpot winner. And as the horses turned for home in the Run for the Roses, all eyes were on Justified as he crossed the wire, earning a win in the first leg of the Triple Crown.

Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate Kentucky’s biggest holiday at Kentucky’s premier equestrian community!

Back in Action @ the New Land Rover Kentucky 3 Day Event

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.
