The Kentucky Horse Park is where equine enthusiasts gather from around the world.
The Kentucky Horse Park has quickly become the Sport Horse Capital of the United States.
The Kentucky Horse Park has grown into the world’s finest equestrian facility and equine business park.
The Kentucky Horse Park strives to educate and inform through state-of-the-art museums and educational courses.
The Kentucky Horse Park is the place to get close to horses of more than 35 different breeds.
The Kentucky Horse Park seeks to honor the animal that has made an invaluable contribution to the world and to help horse owners and handlers improve the quality of life for the equines in their care through a wide variety of educational opportunities.
We do this partly through our International Museum of the Horse, a Smithsonian Affiliate, which is arguably the finest museum in the world dedicated to the horse. Through priceless art, artifacts, interactive exhibits, memorabilia and exhibitions, it traces the history of the complex and incomparable relationship between man and horse through the centuries. Designed with younger visitors in mind, the 8,000 square foot Al-Marah Arabian Horse Galleries is home to a state-of-the-art multimedia, interactive experience showcasing the Arabian breed and how it has changed the world through art, film, and books. We are also the location of the American Saddlebred Museum, the only museum in the world dedicated to the American Saddlebred – a breed that has left an important legacy in the history of our country.
In addition, our park’s Education Department hosts one-day classes, weekend symposiums, riding lessons and a four-month course led by highly regarded veterinarians, trainers and clinicians, as well as our own exceptional park staff. We want to make life better for the animals that have contributed so much to our lives, our park, our state, and our world. We work with at-risk, inner city children in an annual summer program called the Mustang Troop, which instills important life lessons by working with, and learning to ride, formerly wild Mustangs. In addition, we bring the joy of reading and an appreciation for horses to children in Kentucky schools by distributing horse-themed books through the Kentucky Horse Park Literacy Program, and offering follow-up opportunities for these children to experience horses in person at the park later in the school year.
