There were still others to see. These guys were getting ready to go on.
and this 4-H'er was having a "discussion" with her horse over who was really in charge.
One of the star performances was William Shatner with his horse All Glory.
and inside the museum, Priscilla Presley was autographing Breyer horses as part of the press conference to announce the Elvis Presley Graceland Stable exhibit coming to the park soon.
I didn't want to stand in line for (or pay) so I just took a picture. It was free.
After all that outside touring, I was HOT, so I hit the museum. They have a special exhibit running through October that features the Arabian and its history along with many artifacts. It was very good.
And the main part of the museum that is up all the time, was really neat. It covers horse history from prehistoric to current events. Once you cover the prehistoric history, you enter a wide winding hallway that moves in an upward direction and acts as a timeline of horse history. Featuring when certain breeds were developed, important roles horses played in history, etc. It was a neat design and a wonderful display. You arrive on the second floor and a gallery of modern horse accomplishments.
By this time I was worn out, starving, and just done! So I headed to the truck and we hit the road. I left the Kentucky Horse Park with the same feeling of elation that I took with me as a kid on that vacation! It is definitely worth the drive and the $20 admission price! My only word of advice really is that I think I'd wait till Spring or Fall as you'll be much more comfortable and there will likely be more horses present and up close. Or, brave the heat and go to Breyerfest! That was so cool. I think I'll have to go back again sometime.
