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 May 30, 2022 through September 5, 2022! Meeting every Monday evening (with the exception of Monday, July 4th) 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
The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation proudly presents the ninth annual Battle in the Saddle Team Penning event. The date for this spectacular event is Friday, September 2, 2022, at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Covered Arena. 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 to support 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 to access the trails from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 10, 2022.
