Experience The Horse/Horse Games
at Brooking Park located in Georgetown, Kentucky
was held on Saturday, September 7th, 2019
The event was open to the public with Free Admission and Parking. We would like to say “Thank you” to our lovely Judge, Robin Smith Comer, our humorous Announcer, Brent Comer and ALL of our amazing volunteers who worked so hard during the Games! Please note that without our Sponsors and Volunteers we would not be able to have this event nor would we be able to provide the community with the opportunity to experience Horses and their majestic beauty, grace, versatility and loving nature. Please be sure to visit our sponsors and show your appreciation with your patronage for ALL they do! Our volunteers are such an important part of the event and we appreciate their dedication, friendliness and hard work.
We would love to have you and your family at our next event, so please be sure to check for and then save the date – watch for information via our Facebook Page @ Festival of the Horse – Horse Games.
The beginning ceremonies also included an opening prayer by Greg Adams followed by Marie Tomacelli on Belle with the American Flag during the National Anthem.
