Kentucky Horse Park will host a new, three-day equestrian event, EQUITANA USA, in the fall of 2020, officials for the park announced Thursday. The announcement, made in Essen, Germany, coincided with EQUITANA Germany, the world’s largest equestrian trade fair and exhibition, produced by Reed Exhibitions. Over the course of nine days, the biannual German event attracts over 200,000 visitors.

“We are excited to be the home of EQUITANA USA,” said Laura Prewitt, Executive Director of the Kentucky Horse Park. “We look forward to collaborating with Reed Exhibitions to make EQUITANA USA one of our signature events and I am confident the community will embrace the opportunity to welcome guests from around the world.”

EQUITANA USA invites all riding levels, disciplines, breeds, and enthusiasts of all ages to come together to celebrate the horse. A variety of popular equestrian personalities, professional equestrian performers, authors, veterinarians, and other top professionals will come together at the event to share their expertise on a wide range of disciplines and topics. Each day will feature a trade fair with a variety of equestrian-related products and services along with special performances each evening at the Alltech Arena.
