The 2016 Las Vegas National: 4 Stars, 2 Rings, 1 Championship Horse Show...

Your Las Vegas Adventure awaits! With the iconic Vegas Strip as a backdrop, enjoy events and amenities that are unique in the show jumping world. Beyond the world-class footing and permanent stalls, the South Point offers hotel rooms with a closed circuit feed of the show, dining, spa, bowling, movies, gambling, and even an option to order room service at the barn, all under one roof.

Now with a CSI4*-W rating, The Las Vegas National, featuring the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Las Vegas on Saturday evening, will also offer an expanded FEI division. Look for more details on the updated schedule coming soon - follow The Las Vegas National Facebook page for the latest information, and sign up to receive email updates here.

The VIP amenities have also been enhanced this year. Introduced in 2015, the popular Riders Lounge will return, offering a comfortable, ringside spot to view the action. Each evening will bring VIP guests a unique tasting of local flavors in a relaxed and exclusive setting.

Along with the CSI4*-W rating, The 2016 Las Vegas National is truly a championship show. In addition to the return of the featured Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Las Vegas event, the highlights include the Markel Insurance 1.40 Grand Prix Series Final. With half of the qualifiers still to go, the purse for the Final is already over $42,000 and growing. New in 2016, the show also features the $25,000 Interactive Mortgage U25 Developing Rider Series Final. For equitation riders, the CPHA Foundation WCE Medal Finals return, and similar to previous years, the weekend will wrap up with now hotly-contested Finals for both the Show Jumping Hall of Fame and the North American League (NAL) for both hunters and jumpers.

A full slate of USEF "National" Hunter and "Level 6" Jumper classes, plus the USHJA National Hunter Derby, presented by Taylor Harris Insurance Services will also return as part of the six day, two ring schedule.

A horse show at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa is one of a kind. In addition to the thrill of CSI4* competition, and other competitive finals at The Las Vegas National, the hotel features nine restaurants, a 16-screen movie theater and a 64-lane bowling center, as well as a spa and pool area, not to mention the casino. And for those who want more fun, the renowned Vegas Strip as well as access to miles of hiking trails are both a short drive away. A fabulous fall getaway for the whole family!
