Ticket Buyers Can Help Spread Holiday Spirit with Ticket-Raiser for Less Fortunate

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 1, 2013) – The producers of a new holiday show in central Kentucky, “The Spirit of the Horse:  A Holiday Equine Extravaganza,” are staging a charitable “ticket-raiser” to enable individuals from across the country to purchase tickets that will be distributed to the less fortunate in Lexington, Louisville and surrounding areas for its two productions (Nov. 29 and 30) at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

An original equine entertainment production, “The Spirit of the Horse” is produced and performed by the KYB-GPE Equine Theater Production Company from Maple Park, Ill.  The company will enlist the support of charitable organizations to target 1001 recipients of the tickets across Kentucky.

The “Spirit of the Horse” is a magical, heartfelt fairytale filled with meaningful examples of generosity, gratitude and kindness – a powerful message as we enter the holiday season.  In keeping with that spirit, the production company has already contributed $500 towards the 1001 “ticket-raiser.”

“It is our strong belief that ‘The Spirit of the Horse’ represents a spirit of joy,” says Yvonne Barteau, the author of the script. “We would like to see that joy spread among families and children who might not otherwise have the means to see the show. We hope that people across the country will help change that and make a difference for 1001 or more people this holiday season.”

To participate in the “ticket-raiser” guests can go to, also accessible from, and enter the code JOY2013 in the special code section when purchasing tickets.

In addition to the show, guests may purchase tickets for a “meet and greet” with the stars of the production at the holiday Barn Tour prior to the show each evening, and tickets are also available for the Post Production Party where guests can enjoy food and drink and, again, mingle with the horse and rider performers.

The show is presented at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29 and 30, with the Barn Tour available from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. each evening, and the Post Production Party taking place immediately after each performance at the Alltech Arena.  Show tickets range from $25 for VIP seating to $15 general admission for adults, and $10 for children ages 3-12.  Barn Tour tickets are $5 for adults and complimentary for one accompanying child when purchased with a show ticket.  Tickets to the Post Production Party to “meet and greet” the cast are $25 per person, adult or child.

The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm/theme park and equine competition facility dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. The park is an agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet and hosted more than 800,000 visitors and campers, as well as 15,000 competition horses in more than 200 special events and horse shows in 2012.  The park is home to the National Horse Center, which comprises more than 30 national and regional equine organizations. Located at Exit 120, Interstate 75, just north of Lexington, the Kentucky Horse Park is the place to get close to horses.  Information about the park’s programs and activities can be found on-line at, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube.
