Background of Kentucky Derby
The Kentucky Derby is the oldest continuously run sporting event in the United States and is America’s most famous horse race, rich in tradition and celebrated by racing fans throughout the world. In May, 1875, Colonel Meriwether Lewis Clark, taking his lead from the English Derby at Epsom Downs, established the race for three-year old thoroughbreds.
Background of Horse Show
Our demonstration rides will include Dressage (which requires the horse and rider to combine the strength and agility of gymnastics with the elegance and beauty of ballet), show jumping (with its focus on speed, accuracy, timing and judgment) and hunters over fences (focused on precision, accuracy and aesthetics over a jumps course).
