Alltech National Horse Show Mascot Entries Rolling In

Equestrians and horses inside the Alltech Arena aren’t the only ones vying for awards at the Alltech National Horse Show. Kentucky’s kids are competing to win a family prize package for the Alltech National Horse Show by participating in our Mascot Naming Contest with the Lexington Herald-Leader. We’ve already received some great entries that show creativity and knowledge of Kentucky’s horse heritage.

We want kids to help us name the mascot by coloring the picture and telling a story describing this mascot’s rise to fame at the Alltech National Horse Show. Here are a couple of the entries we’ve received so far:

Ella Stevens of Nicholasville submitted an entry with a horse named “Scare Crow.” After watching his father win a ribbon at the horse show, “Scare Crow” was inspired to carry on his legacy. Another entry, from Chastity Pickett, featured a horse named “Henry VI” that overcame some challenges in his life to become the host of the show.

What do you think the mascot’s name should be? Is it a young colt preparing for its first competition, or an old champion who knows all about the event? Use your imagination to tell us about your mascot!

As an extra bonus, three winners will have their mascot featured in an October edition of the Lexington Herald-Leader! We’re still getting more entries every day. To enter the contest, download a coloring sheet at and send the form to:

ANHS Mascot
3031 Catnip Hill Pike
Nicholasville, KY 40356

Entries for the contest will be on display at the show in the kids’ activities area on Nov. 2

The deadline for entries is Oct. 4. For more information on the contest, check out our page on the Alltech National Horse Show website.
