Wayne, IL – July 15, 2014 – Lamplight Equestrian Center hosted the Young Horse Series Horse Show Saturday, July 12, 2014. The Young Horse Show Series is designed to provide sport horse breeders as well as owners, trainers and riders of all disciplines, an affordable show venue to introduce and evaluate their young horses to the show environment. The shows provide an avenue to “put on necessary mileage” with appropriate and special classes suitable to the proper development of young horses.  It is also intended to create a sales environment where numerous young horses are in a single location where their talents can be displayed in front of a buying audience. Sponsors backing the event include Spy Coast Farm, Blue Chip Farms, Footing First, Page Brook Farms, Tequestrian Farms and Aliboo Farm.
Horses were judged in hand, under saddle, in the jumping chute and jumping. 
“Its very rare that you meet people dedicated to the industry like these people,” said Lamplight owner, Nina Moore, of the show's management. “They don’t make money, they put their time into it to benefit the industry.  I was very impressed with their dedication to the breeders. They believe in supporting the breeders in America. They are extremely professional and handle the horses well.”

Taylor Flury of Aliboo Farm, Minooka, IL, added, "The Young Horse Shows are a wonderful venue for breeders and owners of young horses. AliBoo Farm had a great experience taking our young horses to Lamplight because we believe it to be very educational in an affordable and appropriate environment. Having spent countless hours and days investing time and love into the development of our young horses minds and bodies, we are very grateful to JeanYves for creating such wonderful opportunities for young horses."

Lamplight will continue to support young horses and breeding by holding the event again next year.
