The World Equestrian Gardens

Preview the Gardens!

A quick note to invite you to join Jon Carloftis at the Alltech 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG). Opening ceremonies are on Saturday September 25, 2010. Before 2010, this event has never before been held outside of Europe. It’s now in our own back yard, here in Lexington, Kentucky.

As you know, Jon is the genius behind our Rooftop Garden at L.V. Harkness & Co. Jon was selected by Alltech and the Commissioner of Kentucky Tourism to design and install the Alltech Experience and Kentucky Experience feature gardens. The Alltech Experience garden is immense, formal in design, and loaded with surprises (children’s garden & potting shed, labyrinth, beautiful sculptures) around every corner. Jon has planted over 450 containers with a wide variety of plant material to turn what was once a parking lot into a dozen plus garden vignettes. During your visit, you’ll learn a great deal about an amazing Kentucky-based company (Alltech) too.

In addition to these responsibilities, Jon has been challenged to sell more than $10,000 in tickets to this world-class event. We hope that you will come to at least one equestrian event (and don’t forget to visit our storefront in the VIP tent).

You may visit the WEG website ( in order to better understand the wide variety of equestrian event, hospitality, fine dining, and entertainment tickets available. Call Faith Hufford directly (available Monday – Saturday:  call 859.887.8913 (direct line) during normal business hours or 859.361.0247 (cell) after hours) with any questions you have, as well to order any tickets to any of the WEG events (including day passes).
