About this Business
From Our Editors
Now in its third year, the Kentucky Reining Cup gallops back into Alltech Arena for two days of equine competition. Riders from across the globe descend upon Lexington, each vying for more than $100,000 in total prize money and a taste of the golden salt lick during Friday's three-star reining contest and Saturday's freestyle championship. Grammy-winning country-music legend and horse breeder Lyle Lovett is set to compete for the third straight year, and rider Tim McQuay hopes to add another first-place finish to his iconic career. A judged event designed to showcase the athletic abilities of horses on a larger stage, reining calls for riders and their steeds to perform in a series of patterns, from small, slow circles and 360-degree spins to the elusive galloping moonwalk. In freestyle riding, man-and-beast duos trot in choreographed moves set to music. Meanwhile, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day, a large gathering of merchants sells goods, clothing, jewelry and art at the Sponsor Village and Trade Fair.
