Description

The Kentucky Horse Park (#KyHorsePark) is Kentucky's largest state-owned tourist attraction, and is an agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet. Also the largest attraction in Central Kentucky, the park is dedicated to sharing Kentucky's love of the horse with the world. Based in Lexington, the park hosts about 860,000 visitors and 18,600 competition horses in 200 special events and horse shows annually.

The only park of its kind in the world, the Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm, educational theme park, equine competition facility, and equine office park dedicated to man's relationship with the horse. The park is set on more than 1,200 acres in the heart of Kentucky's famous Bluegrass Region.

Featuring dozens of different breeds of horses at work and at play, the park showcases the horse in daily equine presentations, horse drawn tours, and horseback and pony rides during the main summer season, and an exciting array of horse shows and special events throughout the year.

Three museums are included with admission to the park throughout the year - the International Museum of the Horse (#IMHorg), a Smithsonian Affiliate, explores man's relationship with the horse; the American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop, the "Showplace for Saddlebreds," is the home of Kentucky's first native breed; and, the Wheeler Museum in the USHJA headquarters, showcases memorabilia from the hunter jumper sport and the Show Jumping Hall of Fame.
