Be A Part of History...

Saddlebred Stars & Seersucker Stripes Recap

On July 8th, Executive Director Jennifer Foster and Event Chair Cindy Carcione, along with the Museum team put together a see-and-be-seen event during the Lexington Junior League Charity Horse Show. As the unfortunate rain, though perhaps fitting given its historical frequency, subsided at the last year at the Red Mile over 200 guests enjoyed brunch and festivities at the Museum. People mingled and took in the Museum’s current exhibit, Legends of the Saddlebred World: The Lives and Times of Tom & Donna Moore, as well as entries to the 2017 Youth, Young Adult, and Adult Art Contest. There were long lines to meet and be photographed with Patricia Altschul, star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm, and Fashion maven, Saddlebred enthusiast, and Museum Trustee, Carson Kressley. Altschul signed copies of her bestselling book, The Art of Southern Charm, and Kressley signed copies of his latest book, Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big? In the theater, riders in the Equitation Triple Crown, including Jama Hedden (Branham), Kate Harvey Codeanne, Catherine Schuessler McNeese (DuPont), Amanda Arrick (Robertson), Sarah Thordsen, Brittany McGinnis, Faye Wuesthofen, Nick Maupin, Jessie Wuesthofen, and Macey Miles took part in a lively panel discussion led by Curator, Kim Skipton. During brunch, Rodes of Louisville presented classic looks for men by Haspel, the prominent New Orleans based men’s clothing company renowned for its use of seersucker. Haspel was graciously a brunch sponsor and Laurie Haspel Aronson attended the event. Draper James, the southern inspired lifestyle brand founded by actress Reese Witherspoon, provided women’s fashion modeled by familiar faces from our industry. It was certainly a day to remember. We appreciate everyone that came out to support the Museum and hope that all of you had as much fun as we did!
