“The most beautiful horses....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This exhibit was beautiful. I absolutely loved the pictures and paintings, and enjoyed the small film about the African American horse trainers over the years. Unfortunately it was getting close to closing time, and we were run out long before we finished looking.

“Interesting part of a visit to the Ky Horse Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

On the grounds of the Ky Horse Park - the Saddlebred Museum is dedicated to the often underappreciated saddle horse. The exhibits trace the history of the breed and the contributions of the horse over the years.

“American Saddlebred Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

When you visit the Kentucky Horse Park, be sure to go through the American Saddlebred Museum. The information, art work, statues etc. are amazing. This is one of many places to check out at the KHP and well worth it!
