ASB Museum to Feature Open House at Kentucky Spring Premier



The American Saddlebred Museum’s 2015 exhibit, Bits & Pieces of Saddlebred History: Recent Donations & Special Selections, will kick off with an Open House at the Museum’s Showplace for Saddlebreds on Friday, April 10, 2015, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., before the afternoon session of the Kentucky Spring Premier Horse Show. The exhibit features new acquisitions to the permanent collection along with loans of unique items by collectors of Saddlebred memorabilia. Light sandwiches and beverages will be served.

At 12:30 p.m. the Museum will hold its Annual Meeting in the Gallery Wing of the Museum. Everyone is invited to attend the Open House to peruse the new exhibit and enjoy refreshments, and any current Museum member is welcome to attend the brief (approximately 20 minutes) Annual Meeting. Not yet a member? Sign up while you are attending the Open House.

By showcasing recent gifts to the collection and loans of relevant pieces, the exhibit is both a thank you to our donors and a chance to show the public some unique bits of Saddlebred history that are not yet a part of our collection. Bits & Pieces of Saddlebred History runs until February 1, 2016.
