The CP National Horse Show announced today that vendor spaces for this year’s event are now available. The show will once again welcome the world’s best equestrian athletes from around the globe to the famed Kentucky Horse Park on November 1-6, 2016. This is the perfect event to showcase your company or specialty products.

The CP National Horse Show, year after year, has been honored with the top rankings from the North American Riders Group (NARG) and has been named the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame Horse Show of the Year four years in a row.


With nearly $800,000 in prize money offered, this year’s show has been designated a CSI-W 5* show by the FEI. The International Open Jumpers will compete for over a half a million dollars in prize money, while the top rated hunter sections have a total purse of $195,000. Meanwhile, $100,000 in total is offered to the Amateur-Owner and U 25 North American Championship.


Over the past four years, the show has drawn nearly 500 horses and over 350 riders from numerous countries, including a number of Olympic veterans making the trip to Kentucky. The show continues to grow in popularity in the Lexington community and last year was a great success with thousands of attendees, this is in addition to nearly half a million viewers who watched the events unfold live online.


The show has also been a success for the wide variety of vendors that have attended the show over the years. Vendor locations were sold out last year, and the same is expected for the 2016 edition.

The 2016 CP National Horse Show takes center stage on November 1-6, 2016 at the world-famous Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. In addition to the top rated hunters and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship, the show features world-class International, Open, Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumpers competing for the biggest prize money on the United States indoor tour. For the second year in a row, the CP National Horse Show will be one of only seven events that comprise the East Coast division of the all-new Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League.

Founded in 1883 at the original Madison Square Garden, the National Horse Show is America’s oldest indoor horse show, firmly established as a major fixture on the national and international sports and social event calendars. The National Horse Show Association’s primary activity is the annual production of the National Horse Show and all ancillary events. Over the years, the National Horse Show has provided financial aid to many worthwhile charities.
