There's Only One....Kentucky Horse Park.
Set on more than 1,200 acres in the heart of Kentucky’s famous Bluegrass Region, the Kentucky Horse Park is THE place to get close to horses!
Featuring dozens of different breeds of horses at work and at play, the park showcases the horse in daily equine presentations, including the Breeds Barn and Hall of Champions shows, as well as horse-drawn trolley rides pulled by Draft horses, horseback riding and pony rides, and horse farm tours to area farms.
The International Museum of the Horse, now a Smithsonian Affiliate, is dedicated to all breeds of horses and covers more than 50 million years of equine history. The American Saddlebred Museum, the Showplace for Saddlebreds, offers a panorama education of Kentucky’s first native breed of horse.
The Kentucky Horse Park’s preeminent collection of competition facilities allows the park to host some of the world’s most prestigious equine sporting events. Home to the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, where Olympic hopefuls compete, the park hosts close to 200 horse shows and special events annually.
The Kentucky Horse Park also sports one of America’s finest resort campgrounds, set amidst the rolling hills of the Bluegrass, with 260 paved sites, store, swimming pool and many other amenities.
The Kentucky Horse Park is open daily mid-March to October, and Wednesday through Sunday November to mid-March. The park is located at 4089 Iron Works Parkway in Lexington, Exit 120 off Interstate 75. Call 800-678-8813 or 859-233-4303, or visit www.kyhorsepark.com for more information.
