Chairman’s Message

Dear Kentucky Horse Park Foundation Family,
As our global community navigates these unprecedented times, I feel tremendous gratitude for our Kentucky Horse Park Foundation family-individuals like you who ensure the Kentucky Horse Park’s ability to survive and thrive.

In its forty-two years, the Kentucky Horse Park has never experienced times as challenging as these. The effects of COVID-19 are substantial and far reaching. Unfortunately, even a revered place like the Kentucky Horse Park is not immune. Lost revenue and rising expenses have had significant impact, and the Park faces a daily economic battle.

Thanks to the generous support of donors like you, the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation has been able to assist like never before. In the past year, the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation has granted over half a million dollars to the Park, helping the Park weather these turbulent times.

This newsletter will celebrate your dollars at work at the Kentucky Horse Park and highlight programs that are continuing, projects that are flourishing, and improvements that are taking place, in spite of the events of the world. I could not be prouder to share these things with you.

And I also am thrilled to share that the best is yet to come at the KHP. Through the leadership of the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation Board of Directors, the direction of KHPF Executive Director Kathy Meyer and her staff, and the loyal support of donors like you, I know we will accomplish great things.

The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation and Kentucky Horse Park are working together to explore new initiatives related to trees and green space, we are considering ways we can improve the competitor experience, and we are expanding on relationships within the equine community to partner and collaborate. I know that together we can continue to preserve the Park for future generations.

The KHPF is filled with hope and positivity for the future and anticipation of brighter days ahead because the community that loves the Park is vast and generous. Thank you for being an important part of this community.

With Regard,
Clay Green
Chair
