Be sure and check out Mark's great photos and support our photographer!

All of the images from the Lexington Carriage Classic have been posted to my online store. I humbly apologize for taking so long to get them all edited and posted.
I’d suggest creating a list of Favorites and then picking one of several Packages to get the best value.
Thank you again for letting me capture your memories at the Kentucky Horse Park. If you have questions please reach out. If you don’t find your gallery of images let me know.

As our entries come in we are working to accommodate all of our competitors so that they have a good, safe, and fun experience. The show committee endeavors to ensure that all entries are able to participate in all desired classes, and due to the uniqueness of the sport of pleasure driving with many cross-entries and significant time required to safely switch turnouts (from single to pair, or pair to four-in-hand, etc.), we adjust the schedule once entries are received to avoid these conflicts as much as possible.

After all: we don't want anyone rushing back to put-to as fast as they can so they don't miss their next class!

**If you have a cross-entry please note it on your entry blank to help with the show schedule process**
