The Junior League of Lexington’s annual horse show came to a close Saturday night after a week of competition in its new location at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Rolex Arena.

The Junior League Horse Show was established in 1937 and is the first leg of the American Saddlebred Triple Crown — rounded out by the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show and the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo. — and the largest outdoor Saddlebred Horse Show. The equestrian event attracts more than 30,000 spectators and nearly 1,000 exhibitors, according to a Junior League release.
