In this third and final Kentucky Horse Park segment we take a look at some of the long-time favorite attractions among park visitors. One is the colorful and whirlwind Parade of Breeds, a half-hour demonstration near the Breeds Barn. This exciting display of 24 of the park’s equine breeds highlights the horses’ unique traits, complete with authentically costumed handlers and riders to put them through their paces. Another attraction is the renowned Hall of Champions where a handful of equine legends are presented daily. And then, during the spring, there’s the adorable mare and foal show, made possible by the foals that are either born or raised at the park. A 20-minute Mare and Foal presentation gives visitors an up close and personal introduction to some precious foals and their doting mothers. Then come summer the Horse Park campground hits its peak. The full-service 260-site campground is complete with bathhouses, a grocery store, gift shop, fire rings, picnic tables, and facilities for leisure activities.
