Parents and kids are invited to spend a day together learning to work with horses at the Big Barn, located at the Kentucky Horse Park. This one-day program called City Slickers is being sponsored by the Kentucky Horse Council. Participants can be of all ages ranges, and no experience is necessary.
The event will take place on June 22nd from 9am - 3pm. The goal of this program is to provide a unique outing for the whole family to come learn and work hands on with gentle horses. Parents and kids will learn to groom, lead, and tack horses. Basic horse health and different breeds and disciplines will also be some of the various topics covered. In addition, families will be provided lunch while enjoying a hay ride across the park.
The cost of the program will be $25 per family (up to four members) and will include not only lunch but also admission into the park but also admission into the park. Registration for the event is required and will be limited to the first 48 people (24 for each group).
Please complete the registration form, and then you will receive an email for payment options if we have the requested time and available spots open. Thank you.
