I loved your tour!!
I am a BIG horse lover!

We have a "Museum of the Horse" in Rudiso, N.M. and have visited it.
If and when we ever get to Kentucky I will be sure to take it in.

Great pictures of all the different horse breeds. And I loved the "virtual tour" of the horse park. I'm not a huge horse person, but I do appreciate them. If we get back to Kentucky, it sounds interesting enough to go there.

Glad to hear that John Henry is still alive! I can remember him winning the Arlington Million twice. In 1984 he won 6 of 9 starts at the age of 9 and earned over $6.5 million in his career. He's the richest gelding in history of any breed. We saw him at Kentucky Horse Park over 10 years ago.

Howard, I'm really impressed with your recap of the Kentucky Horse Park tours and shows. You must have been taking notes! We were there last year, and did the same thing. This year, we returned with some friends and got an entirely different view of the park. If you take the main campground road straight through the campground, it makes a sharp left turn and takes you in to the back of the Horse Park (also where the polo field is, as mentioned by another reader). From here you can get to (with no admission fee) all of the shows and competitions. We watched several steeplechase cocmpetions, which were very impressive, and several other competitions that we didn't even know what they were. On another afternoon, we watched a polo match and in the evening were able to venture onto the grounds of the Horse Park for free. Nothing was going on, obviously, but we got to see all the barns and several horses out in the pasture. We're not horse people either, but we were awed by the beauty of it all. It made for a great bike ride!
