Lexington, KY – October 30, 2014 – The National Horse Show, now underway at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, is proud to announce that Dover Saddlery has joined forces as the presenting sponsor of this year’s ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay National Championship which takes place as the concluding class on Sunday, November 2, 2014.

Dover Saddlery has been a long-time sponsor of the USHJA and of many equestrian events throughout the country,” she said. “Dover offers the widest selection of quality products for the hunter/jumper riders and it is very rewarding to sponsor and to meet many of our customers at the various shows. We look forward to being in Lexington for the Maclay.”

Wylde won the Rolex-Maclay National Equitation Championship at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden in 1982. Like many of his peers who achieve the honor, Wylde chose a career as a professional rider and went on to represent the United States in international competition earning team and individual Silver medals at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada in 1999 as well as the Male Equestrian of the Year title from the United States Olympic Committee.

In 2002, Wylde and Fein Cera won the individual bronze medal at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain, where Fein Cera was awarded the coveted “Best Horse” honor. The pair was again chosen to represent the United States at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, where they helped the U.S. to win the team gold.

Wylde’s classic riding style has earned leading rider titles from some of the world’s finest horse shows including the Washington International Horse Show, the CSI-W Geneva, and the CSN Manheim. He has won the Style of Riding Awards at the CHIO Aachen, Germany; the CSI Vienna, Austria; at the American Gold Cup; and three times at the Hampton Classic.

The ASPCA Maclay Horsemanship class has been held since 1933, and it is one of the most prestigious competitions for junior riders in the United States.

McLain Ward and Chrystine Tauber to Judge 2014 ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals at National Horse Show

McLain Ward.

Lexington, KY – May 5, 2014 – The historic National Horse Show, scheduled for the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, October 28 through November 2, 2014, announced the line-up of judges for the ASPCA Maclay National Championship today. Olympian McLain Ward will be judging the country’s top junior riders alongside the United States Equestrian Federation President Chrystine Tauber.

Ward grew up riding and competing the equitation himself, and has gone on to help the United States Show Jumping Team win two Team Gold medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics and the 2008 Hong Kong Olympics. He is one of the most decorated riders in Show Jumping, with wins in almost every major grand prix, and is well known for his textbook style in the saddle.

“It is a huge honor to judge the Maclay Finals because it is the most prestigious national championship of equitation in our country,” stated Ward.  “It is great honor from your peers that they respect your level of riding and horsemanship enough to give you the opportunity to be in that position.”

Ward continued, “All judging comes down to a philosophy. I look at equitation as a stepping stone to something even bigger. While some junior careers end [after the Finals], many of those that are most successful in the equitation go on to have careers as top show jumpers. If you look at it as a stepping stone, and you see the different ways the rider has developed, the talent as well as their horsemanship and mental point of view, the most well rounded, well prepared junior wins in the end.”

Chrystine Tauber
Chrystine Tauber

Tauber is a past equitation champion herself, winning both the AHSA Medal and ASPCA Maclay Finals in 1965. She is a top rated USEF judge, course designer, trainer and rider and has been involved in the governance of the sport for nearly forty years. In addition to the presidency of the USEF, she serves as the vice president of the U.S. Hunter Jumper Association. Tauber has judged all the major equitation finals, most recently judging USEF Medal Finals. She has also judged the IHSA Finals and the NCAA Finals twice.

“I have judged the ASPCA Maclay Finals several times in the past and each time it has evolved to a higher standard as a national championship competition,” explained Tauber. “We have more depth of talent in our young riders than ever before so designing the courses, the flat work, and the tests are an exciting challenge.  I am really looking forward to working on these with McLain. He is an Olympic Gold Medalist, a great trainer, and a super stylish rider over Grand Prix height jumps. Combining our talents to create appropriate tests for the junior riders at this level and collaborating on our assessments of the riders is definitely something to look forward to for this year’s finals.”

Tauber concluded, “The Maclay Finals format provides the judges with an opportunity to have a very thorough look at the competitors both over fences and on the flat. The riders should demonstrate a complete knowledge of riding a horse on the bit in a good rhythm as well as a sophisticated coordination of their aids in order to provide a positive influence on the horse’s performance; plus the ability to maintain that rapport and focus under pressure. And, of course, do all of this with poise and style. It is, after all, an equitation championship.”

The ASPCA Maclay Horsemanship class has been held since 1933, and it is one of the most prestigious competitions for junior riders in the United States. Its winners are some of the biggest names in equestrian sport. Previous winners include: William Steinkraus in 1941, Frank Chapot (1948), George Morris (1952), Leslie Burr Howard (1972), Stacia Klein Madden in 1987, and Nicole Shahinian Simpson in 1992. The 2012 ASPCA Maclay National Championship winner was Jacob Pope, and in 2013 Lillie Keenan was named the winner.

Eight regional competitions will determine which top junior riders will travel to Kentucky to compete during the 2014 ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals, which will be held Sunday, November 2, 2014.

Historic ASPCA Maclay National Championship Returns to Alltech National Horse Show

Lexington, Ky. – August 25, 2012 – The second edition of the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, KY, is set for October 30 through November 4, 2012. The show will once again be held at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

In addition to world-class show jumping and the country’s best and most competitive hunter divisions, the show will also feature one of the nation’s longest running and most coveted national championships, the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Maclay National Championship.

Over the years the ASPCA Maclay Finals have been termed the “proving ground of champions” and the ultimate test for America’s young riders. And in the case of this classic test of horsemanship skills, that’s certainly more fact than hype.

During last year’s ASPCA Maclay Finals, it was 17-year-old Sarah Milliren of Sapulpa, Okla., who took top honors. “It’s so exciting; I’m so happy,” beamed Milliren after leading the victory gallop. “For the second round I had moved down, so I knew I had to give it my all. I feel so honored to win this prestigious national championship.”

Alltech National Horse Show Wrap Up: November 2-7, 2011

Lexington, KY – November 8, 2011 – Open Jumper action at the Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, wrapped up on Saturday night with a fast-paced jump-off during the Alltech National Horse Show $250,000 Grand Prix CSI-W. Richard Spooner and Cristallo set the pace with tidy inside turns and a clear effort, beating Great Britain’s Nick Skelton aboard Carlo 273 by just three-tenths of a second. Jessica Springsteen and Cincinatti Le Silla rounded out the three as the fastest four-fault combination during the short course.

Spooner and Cristallo, owned by Show Jumping Syndicates of Agua Dulce, CA, were the first to master the technical course and qualify for the speed phase. The “Master of Faster” did not disappoint when he returned to the ring with his veteran mount. He made a very nice inside turn to the first wide oxer, and followed it with another very tight turn to the wall before galloping home over the double combination and final oxer. Although it almost seemed that the turn to the wall would be too much, Cristallo leapt over it without a rub and the pair broke the beam at 37.970 seconds with all the rails intact. The pair set a pace that no other horse and rider combinations would be able to catch, and eventually led the night’s victory gallop.

Skelton was the last to challenge the short course with Carlo 273, and the speedy duo produced the only other fault-free round. They also managed to catch all the inside turns, and although they had a fast gallop through the end of the course, a slow start proved costly when they tripped the timers at 38.33 to place second.

ASPCA Celebrates Rescued Horses with Parade at Alltech National Horse Show

Equine Welfare Ambassadors and World Class Riders Will Take Center Ring on November 6

LEXINGTON, KY — Sunday, November 6 has been officially designated as “ASPCA Day” at the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, Ky. and to celebrate, the ASPCA is holding a parade of rescued horses that will be highlighted in the competition arena preceding the finals of the prestigious ASPCA Maclay National Championship competition.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, will run November 2-6, 2011, in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, site of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

Horses from the Kentucky Horse Park Mustang Troup will begin the parade. These mustangs were once completely wild on the plains of North Dakota and were later rounded up and removed from their native land. Rescuers have since worked to rehabilitate and train them, and they are now much more accustomed to humans and have become trustworthy riding and performance horses.

Alltech National Horse Show Finds a Home at the Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky

Photo credit: Alltech

After a hundred plus year run in the heart of New York City at Madison Square Garden, the nation’s oldest indoor horse show has been somewhat nomadic for the past decade, having landed on the Piers in New York for two unsuccessful seasons following the departure from Madison Square Garden, and then stopping in Wellington, Florida, for four years before finally landing in Syracuse, NY, four years ago.

Then, after numerous complaints by a large segment of the National Horse Show exhibitor base, Mason Phelps, Jr., along with the progressive thinking members of the Board of Directors of the National Horse Show, spearheaded the drive to finally give this national equestrian treasure a permanent home. The site they chose was the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“It was the logical and perfect place for the National,” Phelps said. “It’s quite simply one of the outstanding venues in the entire world. Also, the excellent management infrastructure that Hugh Kincannon has had in place for years makes this a seamless transition,” he noted.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, will be held from November 2-6, 2011, at the beautiful, new Alltech Indoor Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

“I speak on behalf of the entire Kentucky Horse Park in saying that we are honored to be chosen as the venue of the Alltech National Horse Show and it is our sincere wish that it will be a long and happy association,” said John Nicholson, Executive Director of the Kentucky Horse Park.

Historic ASPCA Maclay National Championship Finds a Home in Kentucky

Lexington, Kentucky – May 17, 2011 – The 2011 Alltech National Horse Show has made the move to Lexington, Kentucky, and along with the glitz, the glamour, the prestige and the big money classes at this classic American tradition, the show will also feature one of the nation’s longest running and most coveted national championships, the ASPCA(R) (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Maclay National Championship.

The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th edition, will be staged at the Alltech Arena at the world-renowned Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, site of last year’s Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. The show runs from November 2-6, 2011, with the Maclay Finals taking center stage on the final Sunday.

Over the years the ASPCA Maclay Finals have been termed the “proving ground of champions” and the ultimate test for America’s young riders. And in the case of this classic test of horsemanship skills, that’s certainly more fact than hype.

“It’s the culmination of a long year of competition, it’s the final national championship, and with all of the history behind it, it’s just a great event to be a part of,” said top trainer Missy Clark, who, during the course of her stellar career as one of the nation’s very best teachers, has sent nine different ASPCA Maclay National Champions to the ring. “If you look back at the names on the Maclay trophy, you see so many names of riders that have gone on to do great things in their careers. If you can get through the Maclay Finals, you can go on and do anything. If you win that class, you’ve got the goods; you’ve got the ingredients to do great things.”
