As you might expect in the Horse Capital of the World, they have horses! But in Lexington’s Bluegrass Region, there are hundreds of exciting things to do, see and experience. Lexington is Kentucky’s centerpiece, offering all the best Kentucky has to offer. Celebrate the living history of Kentucky Bourbon at nearby distilleries such as: The Woodford Reserve Distillery, Buffalo Trace, Four Rose, Wild Turkey, James E. Pepper and Town Branch.
Kentucky Horse Park, or KHP as it’s known in equine circles, is basically an equestrian event venue that celebrates and explores our relationship with horses – it’s a fantastically engaging hub for all things horse. Besides these events, the park sports a hall of champions, a daily parade of different breeds, horse and cart tours and four different museums. The International Museum of the Horse is a Smithsonian Affiliate examining the role of horses through history, while the Al-Marah Arabian Horse Galleries caters to children with interactive experiences, and the Wheeler Museum focuses on showjumping and is chock-full of fascinating memorabilia.
