I visited during the off season late in the day so I did not have to pay admission. This museum, although rather small, is very well done and covers the history of this beautiful Kentucky horse and also some of the many trainers who made them great. They have a section for the kids which includes large saddlebred rocking horses (which they can ride), puzzles and there is also a well appointed gift shop. This is a neat little place and a great addition to the Kentucky Horse Park......I recommend a visit for sure.

I learned a lot at this museum about The American Saddlebred Horses. There was a lot of historical information about the breed and lots of exhibits to look at. We enjoyed our visit.

I knew nothing about the Saddlebred so everything about this museum was interesting. There is a movie to start and the exhibits are varied and entertaining. It only takes about an hour and I would recommend it for those that want to know about the Saddlebred horse. It is a short walk from the entrance to Kentucky Horse Park.

This is a great museum to check out while also visiting the Kentucky Horse Park, especially since it's included in the price. It highlights the significance of saddlebred horses and I learned a lot. The displays are very well done and it doesn't take long to go through it.
