Back at the Barn with Kentucky Performance Products: Backstage at KY Horse Park Spring Show

The Spring Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park is as packed with fresh and ambitious hunter horses and riders as a spring apple tree is packed with popping blossoms. Warm-up rings are packed to the gills, bathing racks are never dry, and dazzling, perfect braids adorn every mane and tail.

We’re taking you for a curated stroll through the horse park courtesy of the competitors, grooms, spectators and coaches who make these big beautiful shows so full of life!

The Logistics:

We're all set up for Kentucky Spring! Loving our gorgeous custom drapery courtesy of Equitex ? #M&W #equitex
