Today is September 1, and while that means it is the first day of meteorological fall, it also means we are one month away from Equitana USA, the world's premiere horse industry event, that will be held at the KY Horse Park. Tickets are now on sale at equitanausa.com, and by purchasing early you will bypass long wait lines at the gate.
Equitana USA is lots of fun for the horse enthusiast, rider or just lover of Kentucky. There will be riding demonstrations including a two-day eventing clinic featuring US Olympian Phillip Dutton; industry workshops and talks featuring Nic Roldan, top US polo player, Dressage Grand Prix rider and trainer Micah Deligdish, coach and educator Colton Woods and natural horsemanship trainer Pat Parelli; panels and roundtable discussions; and lots of great shopping opportunities. In addition, this is a family-friendly event with lots of kids activities. Kids can paint their own horse, have a bouncing good time on the inflatables, and meet and greet with the horses.
The highlight of the three-day event is sure to be the theatrical evening performance of Equus Evolution that highlights the special relationship between humans and horses throughout time.
