Known for its stamina, power, speed, and agility, the Thoroughbred dominated the world of show jumping for decades. Likewise, the breed’s beauty, grace, and elegance proved instrumental in shaping and defining the show ring hunter.
Museum visitors were invited to explore this exhibit, relive the storied athletes of our past, view some of today’s show ring competitors, and share in the special bonds these horses have had with their owners and riders. Few horses exhibit the heart and bravery inherent in the Thoroughbred, and these qualities have resulted in heroic triumphs in international competition, as well as touching personal moments shared only between these horses and their riders and owners.
Revisit yesterday; and celebrate today with the elegance, power and heart that are the Thoroughbred show horse.
