We loved every single second of our time here! Spent a day and a half here! Our two elementary aged daughters and our dog had a great time too. Even during winter times there is still plenty to do...

The stall-side chat was definitely a highlight of this visit as the guide was very knowledgeable on the history and personality of the horses, especially in the Hall of Champions. Very impressive...

Interesting to see the horses and the barns. Good amount of walking to get to it all. We went in fall which just was beautiful . The different buildings to see the history of different things was cool to see and read about. We watched some of the shows withthe horses and that was worth seeing so pay attention to the time. My granddaughter enjoyed going on a horseback ride which is an extra cost for that but she loved. Worth going to and experience it.
First time here at the horse park. What a lovely day to visit such a lovely place. We enjoyed a carriage ride by the two draft horses as the lovely tour guide explained the park. This place is amazing. This park is so large it would take a whole day to see it all. We enjoyed the museum. It showed the history of horses, the racing trophies and the Derby clothes that people wore throughout the years. We took pictures with Funny Cide the 2003 derby winner. Thank you to the officer who introduced us to her horse.
I unfortunately called this place after hours right before the sun was completely down. I don’t think I got the traditional experience, however I did walk around the property. I got to see some of the Hall of Fame horses relatively close, got to see the stables up close where they held some of the horses and learn some history about the sport. This property was massive and seemed to be very well-kept. I don’t know too much about it, but it was pretty fascinating and I would absolutely love to come back another time during the day and get more of the traditional experience. If you’re looking for a unique experience I think this is definitely a good place to go if you’re not from Kentucky. It seems there’s a lot of local heart poured into this sport and facility.
Even if you don't know anything about horses this place is great. It's a beautiful facility with many things to see and do. Learning about the history of man and horse was very interesting. You will learn much more than just the history of race horse's but that was great too.
So excited to see the museum and all the history displayed beautifully. The grounds were equally beautiful with all the trees changing colors providing a gorgeous backdrop. The horses were so amazing and surprisingly larger when close up. I am happy we made an extra stop to see the Kentucky horse park.
