“Too Expensive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

It costs $3 to park and then $16 to enter pp. This is not a top tier attraction and is way over priced in our opinion.

“History and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

A great compliment to the Horse Park offering the history of the Saddlebred as well as virtual saddlebred rides for young and old! My daughter's favorite thing to do at the horse park.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a great stop. So much more than than just a museum. Lot's of lovely artwork, and really well done displays and a fun gift shop to explore.

“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.
