ASB Museum Temporarily Closed for Renovation

Lexington, Kentucky - On Monday January 25, 2010, the American Saddlebred Museum temporarily closed its doors to the public.  During the closure, a complete renovation of the current exhibit space will take place. When the Showplace for Saddlebreds building addition opens in late March, the entire attraction will sport a new look. 

Originally, the facility’s Grand Opening was scheduled to be held during ASHA’s Annual Convention, however, weather and other delays now prohibit those plans.  Unfortunately, this means the Museum will not be open to convention attendees in 2010.  However, the Museum’s Gift Shop will have a booth at the Marriott well-stocked with new items.  Also, orders for merchandise will still be taken through the Museum’s website,, and by phone at 800-829-4438 while the Museum is closed. 

The Grand Opening of the new Showplace for Saddlebreds will now be held on Friday evening April 9th following that day’s session of TSE Tattersalls Sale.  Mark your calendars now and plan to attend this not-to-be-missed event!  For more information, contact the Museum at 859-259-2746 or
