Lake Placid Horse Shows Set to Return in 2023 After Highly Successful 2022
Details Coming Soon on Exciting Plans for Next Year!
After a hugely successful event in 2022, the Lake Placid Horse Shows Sponsored by Bainbridge Farms, LLC, and Presented by Sea Shore Stables, LLC, are set to return to the beautiful North Elba Showgrounds, June 27-July 9, 2023.
Located in the historic Olympic town of Lake Placid, New York, the annual Lake Placid Horse Shows (LPHS) offer two weeks of exciting equestrian competition in a setting no other horse show can match. The meticulously landscaped North Elba Showgrounds are surrounded by breathtaking views of the Adirondack Mountains.
“Virtually every exhibitor I talked to this past year agreed that 2022 was one of our best horse shows ever,” said Philip Richter, Chairman of the Lake Placid Horse Show Association. “Lake Placid has held a special place in the hearts of athletes and vacationers alike since 1970. We have some great things planned for next year as we continue to build on our legacy as the Best Two Weeks of a Horseman’s Summer!”
Preparing to celebrate 54 years of equestrian tradition in 2023, LPHS hosts competitions for riders of all levels and ages ranging from young children on polished ponies, to glistening hunters, to Olympic veterans aboard their grand prix mounts. Competition at the North Elba Showgrounds is held in four spectacular show rings – the Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix Field, the E.R. Mische Jumper Ring, the Main Hunter Ring, and the Hunter Ring.
A USEF Heritage Competition, the LPHS shows are part of the World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) Awards Program and feature classes that are part of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series, North American League (NAL) and Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) series.
Featured classes include the $100,000 Great American Insurance Group Grand Prix Presented by Alliant Private Client on Sunday, July 2; the $100,000 Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix on Saturday, July 8; and the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship North on Sunday, July 9.
The LPHS also offers superb shopping in the boutique vendor area. Local Adirondack artists, products, clothing and apparel are featured, as well as real estate, photography, a variety of equine-related shops, a booth with official Lake Placid Horse Shows commemorative sportswear and merchandise, and an assortment of dining options with culinary delights. Many special events also take place throughout the horse shows that are entertaining for the whole family. The LPHS features the Juliam Farm Leadline Class during week one, while week two features the longstanding tradition of the horse show’s highly popular Doggie Costume Contest Sponsored by Man and Beast.
