See nearly 30 breeds at Kentucky Horse Park
It’s all things equine at this educational theme park: working barns, live demos, museums, trail rides, kids’ activities, camping – all on a gorgeous horse farm.
WINTER AT THE PARK: The winter season is a time of rest and relaxation for our horses. They spend most of their time turned out to their paddocks but take turns visiting Park guests during Stall-Side Chats. Guests can also visit the International Museum of the Horse and the American Saddlebred Museum. Horseback and Pony Rides are closed for the winter season.
Curent Park Hours:
Open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Wednesday – Sunday
