After being tabled for a one year hiatus because of construction of the addition to the American Saddlbred Museum and the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, plans for the 2011 Saddlebred Art, Antique and Rare Book Auction are underway. The auction will once again be held on Saturday July 16, 2011 during the Lexington Jr. League Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Showplace for Saddlebreds.
The auction features equine artwork in all media, rare books unique antiques and collectibles as well as historic artifacts. Consignments are now being accepted for this year’s event. Artwork must be tastefully framed (or preferably in original frame) and items in good condition. The deadline for submission is March 25, 2011.
The auction will begin at 12:00 noon, and a Preview Party will be held prior to it from 10:30am to noon. If you’ve never attended the auction, plan now to do so – it’s one of the season’s most unique and entertaining events!
