[Lexington, KY] – With the historic Alltech National Horse Show preparing for its Lexington debut this fall, horse enthusiasts and members of the community are invited to attend an informational program about the show and the experiences that will be available to spectators during the five-day event.
Free and open to the public, Alltech’s popular Equine News and Brews program will be held August 25 at Alltech’s Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company in downtown Lexington.
“The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games were transformational for Lexington and for the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech, the first-ever title sponsor of the Games and of the National Horse Show. “Opportunity once again literally landed in our backyard with the National Horse Show.”
“As with the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010, we are eager to help people understand and enjoy this year’s highly acclaimed equestrian competition, along with experiencing the many exhibits and demonstrations on the show grounds for the entire family.”
The 2011 Equine News and Brews program, he added, is designed to “build on the spirit of the Alltech FEI Games by providing a forum for all those who share a love of the horse. The open, casual dialogue encouraged at Equine News and Brews is meant to serve as a catalyst in fostering local involvement and interest in the equine industry.”
The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th Edition, will be held November 2-6 in the indoor, climate-controlled Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. This year’s show offers more than $600,000 in prize money. It has been designated CSI-W 4*, with the Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix being named an FEI East Coast League World Cup qualifying event.
The Equine News and Brews program will be held at Alltech’s Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company at 401 Cross St. in downtown Lexington. A Kentucky Ale reception will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program at 7:00. There is no charge but attendees must preregister by emailing EquineNewsandBrews@alltech.com. Space is limited.
Equine News and Brews is presented by Alltech’s natural equine supplement, LIFEFORCE. LIFEFORCE is a once-daily, natural supplement that enhances performance through nutrition and is the official supplement of the Alltech National Horse Show.
