Experience the Kentucky Horse Park in unique ways through
our special events.
KHP Run/Walk Club
Presented by the KHP Foundation
The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is proud to announce the return of the Kentucky Horse Park Run/Walk Club in May 2021! Meeting every Monday evening from 4:30-7:00 at the KHP Visitor Center, the Park welcomes the community to explore the grounds free of charge! A specific route is marked for visitors to walk or run a 1.5 mile or 3 mile loop through the beautiful horse capital of the world.
Battle in the Saddle
This exciting event pairs two amateur riders with a celebrity guest rider on each team. Teams will compete against each other to determine who has the skills and bravery needed to pen a group of cattle in the quickest time. And all of this fun is in the name of charity – to raise funds for the Kentucky Horse Park!
Explore the Kentucky Horse Park at the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation Trail Ride! Proceeds will support the KHP Tree Fund Initiative, to protect and expand the natural beauty of the Park. Guests of all levels, breeds and disciplines are invited to explore the Park grounds with their own horse for a $45 entry fee which includes a KHPF/KHP facemask and access to the trails from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Southern Lights Holiday Festival
Twenty-eight years ago, the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation presented the first ever driving tour of holiday lights, aimed at attracting the local community. Today Southern Lights has evolved to attract over 120,000 visitors each year from across Kentucky and surrounding states. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to the 2021 Southern Lights Holiday Festival! Please stay tuned for details.
Southern Lights Stroll
The 2020 Southern Lights Stroll has been canceled in response to Covid-19. Look for its return in 2021!

Kentucky Three-Day Event
The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event stands as one of the most thrilling events on the international equestrian calendar each year. Celebrating and showcasing global excellence in the field of eventing, this annual competition, held over four days in April, has been the Kentucky Horse Park’s signature event since 1978. Its continuance at the KHP is crucial to the KHP’s future financial success and prestige, and the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is delighted to partner with Equestrian Events Inc. to ensure its success.
