  • Great first impression, beautiful grounds. Staff was super friendly and eager to help. Lots of horses, including several rare breeds. Something for everyone. Also they are veteran friendly, got in for half price with my ID! Only negative comment, some of the buildings are in disrepair but there was work being done while we were there. All in all, WELL worth the trip!
  • I'd advise coming early and staying the whole day. If you want a chance to ride horses you'll need to arrive as early as possible as they get snatched up quickly. There are shows that only happen once a day and those are early in the day. I highly recommend this facility if you love horses. There is no better place in Kentucky to go and be among these beautiful animals while learning more about them. The only better experience you might hope for is owning your own horse.
