Hagyard Rider Challenge Sponsors

Join us this spring and summer for the Hagyard Rider Challenge (formerly known as the Hagyard Challenge Series), a four-part series of premier show-jumping events held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Again this year the rider who accumulates the most points in the series will receive a cash prize. This year’s series will feature a CSI** and a CSI***, making riders eligible to earn points toward international show-jumping rankings, with the prize being presented during the Kentucky National Horse Show in September.

Each show is free to attend, and dogs on leashes are welcome. Come enjoy a relaxing night of spectacular show-jumping, courtesy of Hagyard Equine Medical Institute.
