The Saddle Celebrity Team Penning Event

The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation proudly presents the Battle in the Saddle Celebrity Team Penning event each year.  This family-friendly event pairs two amateur riders with a celebrity guest rider on each team. Teams compete against each other to determine who has the skills and bravery needed to pen a group of cattle in the fastest time.  And all of this fun is in the name of charity- to raise funds for the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation!
