The seasons are changing in the Bluegrass, and the Kentucky Horse Park is arguably one of the most beautiful places to experience it! Autumn leaves provide the perfect backdrop for our resident horses, cooler temperatures make traipsing the grounds so enjoyable, and special events are scheduled to attract visitors of all ages.
Here at the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, we are certainly enjoying the fall, and we are also looking to the future. The 29th Annual Southern Lights Holiday Festival opens on November 25, and we can’t wait to welcome guests from across the Bluegrass and beyond. The KHPF staff is working hand in hand with the Park as we make plans for the expansion of education programs like the Mustang Troop and the Field Trip Fund.
Perhaps most notably, through the support of donors like you, the KHPF was recently able to make a grant of $90,000 to the KHP which will be directed towards the purchase and planting of trees. These trees are just one of our efforts to ensure the long-term beauty of our beloved Kentucky Horse Park.
This newsletter highlights some of the wonderful things that happened this summer, including the Battle in the Saddle, and it showcases our plans for this fall, winter, and beyond. I hope you will enjoy learning more.
As always, I am overwhelmingly grateful for the KHP Foundation family that stands by the Kentucky Horse Park today and helps us plan for tomorrow. I truly believe that the Park’s best days are ahead of it, and I thank you for joining us on this journey.
