|The Kentucky Horse Park is the place to get close to horses!|
The park is dedicated to sharing Kentucky's love of the horse with the world, and is proud to host the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010.It is a working 1,200-acre horse farm, educational theme park, and equine competition facility which welcomes approximately 900,000 visitors and 15,000 competition horses each year to 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, a movie presentation, and an exciting array of horse shows and special events throughout the year.
Visitors have the opportunity to meet living legends of the turf such as Cigar and Kentucky Derby winners Alysheba and Funny Cide, and to learn more about the history of the horse in the International Museum of the Horse, a Smithsonian affiliate, as well as Kentucky's first native breed of horse in the American Saddlebred Museum.
