Lexington, KY – December 22, 2014 – The Split Rock Jumping Tour, a new international show jumping series set to revolutionize the horse show experience for riders, sponsors and spectators, would like to remind everyone to reserve the dates of May 22-24 and October 9-11 for its two new FEI international horse shows in 2015.
The Lexington International and the Bourbon International horse shows will both take place at Split Rock Farm in Lexington, KY, the “Horse Capital of the World.” Both are FEI 3* events that will allow riders to earn FEI points without having to travel to Europe.
The brainchild of international Show Jumping rider Derek Braun, the Split Rock Jumping Tour is modeled after successful European shows and will give competitors, sponsors and spectators an “Unparalleled Show Jumping Experience” by changing the way show jumping is presented in the U.S.
“The Lexington International takes place in May at an ideal time of year for international riders, as well as up-and-coming young riders, to earn FEI ranking points,” said Braun. “Both our shows have a fresh approach and are a great addition to everyone’s competition calendar.”
The Split Rock Jumping Tour will provide first-class amenities for riders, horses, sponsors, and spectators, with close attention paid to every detail. A world-class venue with a pristine grass jumping field will be coupled with top prize money and extravagant awards to help draw the best horses and riders from all across the U.S. and beyond.
Spectators looking for a chance to watch international competitors in a unique location will also enjoy an “Unparalleled Experience” at Split Rock. Spectators can browse boutique shops while enjoying food vendors, a Children & Family Zone, a Beer Garden, live music, and special giveaways and prizes.
