Horses: The Unbridled Spirit of Kentucky
Maybe nothing defines the culture of Kentucky better than the state’s obsession with horses. One visit to Kentucky’s Horse Country and the Thoroughbred and Saddlebred affection is apparent in everything from the fields of grazing horses and racetracks to horse farms and tours.
Miles of black and white equestrian fencing dances along the sprawling bluegrass countryside leading to the legendary horse racing cathedrals such as Keeneland and Churchill Downs racetracks, as well as the scores of horse farms where million-dollar equine athletes live and train. The famous Kentucky Horse Park features spectacular show facilities, the International Museum of the Horse and even a chance to get up close and personal with past Kentucky Derby winners at the Hall of Champions.
Come and experience what Kentucky’s horse culture is all about.
