|The Kentucky Horse Park is one of the premier attractions in Lexington, KY and a great place to learn all about the equine world. |
The entire park encompasses over 1200 acres with several barns, museums, picturesque pastures, a campground, stadiums and show rings. There is ample parking and paved trails to each site.
Different events and shows are hosted all year long, from jumping to dressage, so check their calendar for the latest.
Take a self-guided tour through the 4 museums to learn about the different horse breeds and their relationship with mankind throughout history. Plenty of interactive exhibits and life-size dioramas entertain all ages.
Inside the barns there are scheduled opportunities to learn about horse care, grooming, talk with trainers, and get up close to the horses. Meet with retired "celebrities" in the Hall of Champions barn.
For a memorable experience, take the 25 minute guided trail ride on horseback.
There are 3 caf s on the grounds, but check for seasonal hours and times. Picnicking and outside food are also allowed. Gift shop and restrooms are in the Welcome Center.
The Kentucky Horse Park is a wonderful, welcoming place to interact with horses and learn about their contributions throughout history.
