Lexington, KY - October 19, 2011 - - The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th edition, set to debut in Lexington, Kentucky, beginning on November 2 and continuing through November 6th, announced today that Friday night will be University Night at the inaugural event.

All college students, with a valid student ID and wearing school colors can purchase primetime tickets for the Friday night performance on a two-for-one basis. Buy one, get one free. Also, kids 12 and under are admitted free with the purchase of an adult ticket.

"Over the years, we have always made a special effort to expand our fan base for equestrian competition. The Alltech National Horse Show has taken on that challenge this year, and we feel that this special college promotion is an excellent way to get some younger people involved in our sport," said National Horse Show Association President, Mason Phelps, Jr. "The two for one deal, we hope, will provide an entertainment opportunity at a great price for area students."
