The American Saddlebred Museum truly is the Kentucky Horse Park's "Showplace for Saddlebreds."

An extensive renovation completed recently of both the museum and the gift shop allows you to experience Kentucky's oldest native breed of horse at its finest.

Known as "The Horse America Made," the American Saddlebred has played an important role in our nation's history. That history, along with award-winning movies and unique, interactive exhibits, are a must see during your visit to the park.
