The 2011 Intercat, Inc. Lake Placid Horse Shows A “Must See” For Everybody

The $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, presented by Eastern Hay and Purina Mills, returns on Sunday, July 10, in the Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix Field.

The horse shows, which return to the North Elba show grounds, June 28 – July 10, feature everything from world-class equestrian competition to family activities, shopping and dining! With 4 rings of competition, thousands of exhibitors and beautiful show grounds located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, the whole family will find something they love at the horse shows! “You can’t go wrong with a trip to the Intercat, Inc. Lake Placid Horse Shows,” said Richard M. Feldman, Chairman of the Lake Placid Horse Show Association. “You don’t have to be an equine enthusiast to appreciate this event. Fresh air, sunshine, and a full schedule of family fun activities make the horse shows a perfect summer destination for everybody!” Highlighting this year’s horse shows are two Grand Prix events— The $75,000 Mirror Lake Inn Grand Prix of Lake Placid, presented by Intercat, Inc., which returns on Sunday, July 3 and the $75,000 Woodlea Farms Grand Prix, presented by Intercat, Inc., which returns on Saturday, July 9. These two Grand Prix events represent the pinnacle in show jumping competition and attract world-class riders and Olympians. Following the $75,000 Woodlea Farms Grand Prix, the Richard and Diana Feldman Perpetual Challenge Trophy for Excellence is awarded to the rider who has won the most combined prize money in Lake Placid’s two Grand Prix events.

Lake Placid Horse Show Association Chairman Richard M. Feldman congratulates a young rider following the Juliam Farm Lead Line Class.

Also returning is the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, presented by Eastern Hay and Purina Mills, on Sunday, July 10, in the Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix Field. The Derby, which was an instant favorite when it made its debut at last year’s horse show, adds a fun and unique spin on traditional hunter classes as Derby participants compete over a course of jumps designed to simulate natural obstacles set in the horse show’s large grass Grand Prix field.

One such tradition is the 19th annual Doggie Costume Contest, sponsored by The Brown Dog Café & Wine Bar and A Placid Life/Jake Placid Doghouse on Saturday, July 9 at 12:00 noon. The horse show’s top dogs strut their stuff in a special ring set up near the Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix Field. Awards, including the Lulu Perpetual Trophy for the funniest costume, are presented to the “top dogs.” All people with leashed dogs in costume are admitted to the horse show free of charge on this day.
