In 1777, Patrick Henry, then Governor of Virginia, granted 9,000 acres of land in the Kentucky Territory to his brother-in-law, William Christian, as a reward for his service in the French and Indian War. A wealthy Virginian, Colonel Christian moved his family to Kentucky in 1785 and established a farm on Beargrass Creek near Louisville. Christian was killed by Indians in 1786, and his daughter, Elizabeth Dickerson, inherited the Elkhorn Creek tract, 3,000 acres of land now in both Scott and Fayette Counties. Part of this land became the Kentucky Horse Park.

We visited the Kentucky Horse Park for BreyerFest 2018 and had a wonderful time. The park was way bigger then we expected and had so many beautiful areas to explore. The main barn had shows with horses and dogs. It also had a food court window with some great sandwiches. If you are in the area, definitely visit the Kentucky Horse Park and give yourself a couple hours to explore and take pictures! My daughter loves horses and nature and was in love with this park.

What a beautiful horse park! The Parade of Champions was enjoyable. We got to meet “Go for Gin”, the the oldest living (1994) Kentucky Derby Winner up close and personable and learn a part of history. So sweet and distinguished! Quite the personality!

Enjoyed the day here. Beautiful park. Several lovely barns to tour and look at the horses. They offer a couple of demonstrations through out the day, the one we enjoyed the most was the parade of breeds. And the museum is very well done. Everyone in our family enjoyed it.

I live in Pueblo West, Colorado, and visiting the Kentucky Horse Park was a beautiful experience. If I'm fortunate enough to get there a second time, I'll arrive early so won't miss the activities. Enjoyed the documentary film in the Visitor Center (watched it several times as it was so beautiful!) and loved seeing the many lovely horse paintings in the Visitor Center and restaurant. Beautiful statues, lovely landscaping, and friendly staff. The restaurant had a reasonably-priced menu and nicely-presented food. If I get back, I would like to spend a few days there; it would be my number one priority!

Quite inexpensive for what you get to see. Lots of reading of displays but loved meeting the famous horses up close and personal. Lots of walking, they need to provide transportation for those who can't walk fast. The trolley ride was really not much but they did point out a few interesting things.
