The Lexington Junior League held their first horse show on July 22, 1937. After 82 years the annual six-day show draws around 30,000 people and attracts nationally renowned competitors. The Lexington show is the largest outdoor show for the American Saddlebred in the world.  Herald-Leader Archive Photo
