The Shelbyville Horse Show is a four-day event showcasing the “peacock of the horse world” – American Saddlebreds.

Scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 2-5 at the Shelby County Fairgrounds, this premier event is a must-attend for horse lovers everywhere.

“What makes this show so unique is the involvement of a cross section of the entire community,” said Charles Kramer, avid horse enthusiast and founder of Kentucky Backroad Tours. “It is truly a huge social event wrapped around a horse show. It is a show for horse enthusiasts and for people who really just want to have a great time.”

Preceding the horse show are Jubilee events that begin on July 27 with a free-admission multi-day Youth Art Show at Shelbyville’s Historic Courthouse and, on July 29, a free ice cream eating contest, Classic Car Show and Street Party Concert, all taking place in downtown Shelbyville. Headlining the concert is Nobody’z Bizzness featuring Leo Night. Get more details at
