Keystone International Livestock Exposition’s Open Horse Show Taking a Hiatus in 2017

Plans call for event to return in 2018

Harrisburg, PA – The Open Horse Show at the Keystone International Livestock Exposition (KILE) is taking a hiatus in 2017.

The search is on for a new superintendent for the Open Horse Show event, which began in 2011. Looking ahead to the 2018 Show, KILE managers are seeking a strong leader with excellent organizational skills and experience managing competitive equine events.

“It was a tough decision but one the KILE Executive Council felt was necessary for the 2017 show,” said KILE Executive Chairman Harry Bachman. “We are actively searching for the right individual to take on the role of superintendent. We’re looking for someone to bring a fresh perspective and proven leadership skills to modernize this event.

The 2017 Keystone International Livestock Exposition is scheduled for September 29-October 8 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center and will continue to offer shows for draft horses, beef cattle, sheep, swine, and goats. KILE is the largest livestock show in the eastern United States. For more information on KILE, call 717-787-2905.
