Kentucky Horse Park

I am planning on visiting the Kentucky Horse Park on Sat.

I see there is a competition that day....will that make it impossible to find parking, and will it be way overcrowded? Or am I worried for nothing?

Any suggestions for lunch nearby that is toddler friendly?

Thanks in advance for the help!

There are competitions going on all of the time at the Horse Park. A big one is just ending now, and I believe the one that will be there on Saturday will be fairly big too, but don't let that worry you. The competitions are held away from the areas where regular Horse Park visitors go. In particular, the competitions are held at the new indoor arena, the new outdoor arena, and other places that are away from where tourists generally go in the park, although tourists are welcome to view the competitions. The parking for the competitors is also away from the parking for tourists. Tourists park in a huge lot that is near the wlecome center, and there is never a shortage of available spaces. Also, while competitors might be at some of the tourist shows, most of the time they are too busy competing to visit the Parade of Breeds, the Hall of Champions, the museums, etc.

As far as lunch, there is now a restaurant again in the park. For a long time in 2009 and 2010, there was nothing because of an asbestos problem (or so I was told), plus renovations for the World Equestrian Games which were held at KHP in the fall of last year. I don't really know what they have for toddlers. If you are looking for something like McDonalds, you can jump on the interstate, and go up to Exit 126 at Georgetown, which has a McDonald's and other fast food restaurants around it.
