The mission for the Ultimate Outdoor Expo & Concert is to offer an outdoor related expo that Kentucky outdoorsmen and women will set their calendars for each year. An expo that consumers can feel needed and welcomed to attend one that will be customized to suite their needs, bringing them back to the Ultimate Outdoor Expo at the Kentucky Horse Park year after year! There are no other indoor/outdoor shows with a setting like the Kentucky Horse Park's Alltech Arena in the nation!
Beginning early Sunday morning, 174 young riders and their ponies took their turns around the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park Friday, with each hoping to claim the coveted honor of Marshall & Sterling/USEF Pony Medal Champion by day's end. Ultimately, it was Sophie Gochman aboard Rico Suave who outshone the rest to take the top prize following two seamless over fences trips and a stand-out performance in the additional flat testing.
