Adoptable Horses from the Kentucky Horse ParkWe’re looking for good homes for two of our former Parade of Breeds stars. If you are interested in either of the horses below, please contact Ashlea Gullett-Beeson in our Equine Department for more information, 859-259-4256 or
ORIGINAL ZIN, “Legend”16.2 h. Thoroughbred, 2001
Legend is quite a character. He retired from the racetrack and spent two years in our Breeds Barn representing the Thoroughbred and the sport of racing. He enjoys entertaining the staff with his inquisitive, sometimes goofy personality.
Legend is suitable for an intermediate-advanced adult rider doing low-level dressage and trail riding. He also wouldn’t object to being a pasture ornament. He’s quite the looker – chestnut with chrome and a big blaze. He plays well with others, trailers, stands for the vet and farrier, clips, bathes and ties. He is currently barefoot.
BHF Wind Dancer, “Dancer” (Winds of Warr x Khemos Love Song)15.1 h. Arabian, foaled 1992
If you’re looking for a sweet, cuddly horse, Dancer is your man. He retired from a show career and spent a year in our Breeds Barn representing the Arabian breed. He loves people and attention, and would be the perfect back-yard pony for a family.
Dancer is suitable for very light riding or as a pasture companion. He is bay with a black mane and tail. He gets along great with other horses, and is happy to live in the pasture 24/7. He trailers, stands for vet and farrier, clips, bathes and ties. He is currently barefoot. Easy keeper.
From the moment the 7/8 Arabian pinto colt, TS Black Tie Affair, was born in 1990, it was clear he would be something special. "Tie" as he is called, is by Tardar out of EVG Lady Di.
Tie’s phenomenal career has included winning 22 Pinto World and Reserve World Championships, two Pinto All-Around Pleasure High Point titles, multiple halter, dressage, English and Western pleasure titles, competitive trail championships including 2000 Pinto Trail Horse of the Year, the Pinto Horse Association’s Open Supreme Championship and, in 2010, the Arabian Horse Association Ambassador Award.
Tie will be appearing at the Kentucky Horse Park this weekend, July 15-17, 2011 for BreyerFest. He also has his own Breyer model horse. Watch a video that we shot today, July 15, at the park, then come out and meet him in person!
