Cross Country Schooling

2019 Cross Country Schooling Days

What do you get when you combine the rare opportunity to school your horse on a world-renowned Cross Country Course, with a chance to support a fundraiser for a great cause? Cross Country Schooling Days!


Riders are given the opportunity to school their horses on the famous Kentucky Horse Park cross country course. For a $40 fee, riders can school their horse for four hours on the course. $20 of the fee will be considered a donation and all proceeds will go to the KHP Foundation to help maintain and improve the park’s competition facilities. There will be two sessions per day.

*Please know that for the KHP Foundation's Cross Country Schooling Days event, there will be no trailer pass required, nor will participants be charged a fee for "trailering in" rather than renting a stall, as stabling is not an option for many of these dates. For Cross Country Schooling Days, participants will need to pay $40 per horse and rider combination, as always, plus either have an annual parking tag OR pay the $5 daily parking fee to enter the park. No other charges will be required.
