American Saddlebred Museum COVID-19 Health and Safety Update



To our Museum Friends: 

The American Saddlebred Museum is a place where people love to celebrate the history and traditions of our beautiful athletic horses.

We’ve been evaluating the best method to address and limit the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) within our community. Essentially, we need to limit the potential transmission of the virus among visitors coming from a broad range of origins. With much thought and consideration, we have decided to close the Museum from now until Monday, April 6th. The online Gift Shop will operate under our current normal practices. Feel free to visit our website for your online shopping needs. 

Our administrative offices will operate with some limited hours and staffing, but the office functions will be uninterrupted by these changes. All vendors and visitors should contact us ahead of time before visiting the Museum office. 

Thank you for your continued support as we try to help keep our community safe and healthy. We will continue to monitor the evolving circumstances and send updates as we have additional information to share. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns. 

Wishing everyone good health,  

Keith Kurz, President, Board of Trustees
Jennifer Foster, Executive Director
