Lexington, KY – September 24, 2014 – The 2014 National Horse Show announced today that for the fifth year in a row, the Saturday evening performance at the show will benefit the United States Equestrian Team Foundation. During the Saturday evening performance, featuring the show’s main event, the $250,000 CP Grand Prix, the horse show will share fifty percent of the night’s gate receipts with the USET Foundation.
The National Horse Show returns for a fifth year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, on October 28 – November 2, 2014.
The National Horse Show was once again named the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame’s Horse Show of the Year and was again named as one of NARG’s (North American Riders Group) top rated North American events.
The United States Equestrian Team Foundation supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international high performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. Its main tasks are to support athletes, promote international excellence and build for the future.
Bonnie Jenkins, Executive Director of the USET Foundation, spoke of the successful and important partnership. “We are so grateful to the National Horse Show for highlighting and supporting the important role of the USET Foundation.
“With so many riders who have represented the United States in Nations Cup competition, as well as the young up and coming talent that will be competing on Grand Prix night, makes it a perfect fit reflecting our core mission of supporting athletes, promoting international excellence and building for the future. Continuing the tradition and partnership of the USET and the National Horse Show is something we feel privileged and grateful to be part of and thank them for helping us achieve our mission,” she said.
“As always, we are excited to continue the worthwhile tradition of the National Horse Show supporting the activities of the United States Equestrian Team Foundation,” said Mason Phelps, Jr., President of the National Horse Show Association. “The National Horse Show over the years has been honored to make a major commitment to the USET Foundation. We look forward to providing some much needed funding for championships and major events on the horizon.”
