It’s not just area children who dress up in costumes for Halloween. In Kentucky, horses do, too! On Sunday, Oct. 26, at 2 p.m., the Kentucky Horse Park will present its annual Halloween Show at the Horses of the World Barn where park horses and their riders are likely to show up as just about anything – a scary headless horseman, cranky wicked witch, swashbuckling pirates, genie with a bottle, “Phantom of the Opera” – it’s different every year.
Throughout the year, the Horses of the World Show is presented with riders wearing costumes appropriate to the breed of horse or discipline. For the Halloween Show, costume ideas are planned all year by park employees and special guests to wrap up the park’s summer tourist season with a fun twist on the tradition.
The Kentucky Horse Park is open daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through Nov. 2. Admission is $16 for adults and $8 for children 7-12, and includes the Next Day Free. Beginning Nov. 3, the park will switch to its winter schedule and will be open Wednesday-Sunday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Winter admission will be $10 for adults and $5 for children 7-12, and includes the Next Day Free. Children 6 and under are always admitted free of charge when accompanied by a paying adult. Admission includes the International Museum of the Horse, a Smithsonian Affiliate; and the “Showplace for Saddlebreds” – The American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop.
