Big Barn - Draft Horse Hub

Visitors may tour the scenic Kentucky Horse Park grounds in a trolley pulled by two of our beautiful draft horses daily throughout the summer season (weather permitting). This informative 8-10 minute tour provides a chance to learn more about the features, history, and current events of the Kentucky Horse Park. Trolley picks up between the Kids Barn and the Mounted Police Barn.

Come visit the draft horses in the Big Barn for a live demonstration and Meet & Greet session. This demonstration will cover a variety of information about the draft horses, including show preparation, harnessing, and breed history. The demonstration runs for approximately 15 minutes, and questions are gladly accepted from the audience. Afterwards you are welcome to visit the draft horse being used in the day's session and take pictures!
