Kentucky Horse Park

The Kentucky Horse Park is Kentucky’s largest state-owned tourist attraction, and is an agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet. Also the largest attraction in Central Kentucky, the park is dedicated to sharing Kentucky’s love of the horse with the world. Based in Lexington, the park hosts nearly one million visitors and 19,000 competition horses in 200 special events and horse shows annually. The only park of its kind in the world, the Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm, educational theme park, equine competition facility, and equine office park dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. The park is set on more than 1,200 acres in the heart of Kentucky’s famous Bluegrass Region. Featuring dozens of different breeds of horses at work and at play, the park showcases the horse in daily equine presentations, horse drawn tours, horseback riding and pony rides, video presentations, and an exciting array of horse shows and special events throughout the year. Three museums are included with admission to the park - the International Museum of the Horse, a Smithsonian Affiliate, explores man's relationship with the horse; the American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop, the "Showplace for Saddlebreds," is the home of Kentucky's first native breed; and, the Wheeler Museum in the USHJA headquarters, showcases memorabilia from the hunter jumper sport and the Show Jumping Hall of Fame. In 2013, TripAdvisor named the park as a Travelers' Choice Award Attractions winner in the Top 25 Amusement Parks and Water Parks in the United States category, the first year the award has been offered. Also in 2013, the American Bus Association has selected the park's Southern Lights event, November 22 to December 31, as a Top 100 Event in North America. Come see for yourself why the park has received such great national accolades and attention! The Kentucky Horse Park welcomes dogs and other pets to join their owners when visiting the park.
