The Kentucky Horse Park is home to the Arabians and half-Arabians ChampionshipsThis week, the Kentucky Horse Park is hosting the U.S. championship for Arabians and half-Arabians in dressage, hunter/jumper and carriage driving.

The Arabian is one of the most versatile breeds in existence, and this week the Kentucky Horse Park hosts a showcase of the best Arabian sport horses in the country. More than 600 horses are expected to compete at the Sport Horse Nationals, which run September 22-27.

Spectators are welcome and there is no admission fee (parking at the Horse Park is $3/day or $5 for an event pass.) The dressage classes will be held primarily in the dressage complex. The sport horse in-hand classes will be in the covered and annex arenas. The majority of the hunter/jumper classes will be held in the Horse Park’s new indoor arena. Carriage classes are set to run in several different venues. The full schedule is available at arabianhorses.org.
