The Kentucky State Fair Board last week voted to extend the World's Championship Horse Show, held during the Kentucky State Fair, by an extra day. The additional day will begin in 2015.
Held in Freedom Hall, the prestigious Saddlebred show will now begin on the first Saturday of the Fair for an eight-day run, rather than the first Sunday. The finals will continue to be held on the last Saturday night.
Fred Sarver, who represents the America Saddlebred Horse Association on the Kentucky State Fair Board praised the action of the fair board.
