"Quintessential Kentucky!
If you're looking for a nice day in a park, make it this one. The scenery is gorgeous, and there's something for everyone, whether your a horse-lover or just an outdoor enthusiast. There are iconic landmarks for Secretariat, Man O' War and others. There are museums and traveling exhibits that change all the time. The live shows are fun, and you can even take a ride! It really is one of the most enjoyable places to visit, especially for the authentic Kentucky experience."

"This was probably the best place I’ve ever toured. Fantastic exhibits and history. Loved all the statues and being able to interact with the horses. Thank you for making a bucket list item an amazing experience." 

– Megan R.

"This place is one in a million! The people at the horse park could not be kinder! Everyone we encountered was friendly, informative, and genuinely happy to be there speaking with the public. The park is absolutely gorgeous and extremely well kept. It’s amazing to have the opportunity to interact with such phenomenal horses. This is the perfect venue for dog shows and other events!"

– Lindsay F.

"The Kentucky Horse Park is my favorite tourist attraction here in Kentucky. I have a special love for this place since I love horses, but if you know nothing about horses, it is the perfect place to experience them for the first time. There is so much to see and do. You can always catch an event of some kind. This is a great location for families and for local Kentuckians, too. There are both indoor and outdoor attractions. Once you come, you will want to come back again and again to see what is new and to visit your favorite horses."
