Morgan Horse Pavilion’s Ribbon Cutting

As the completion of the Morgan Horse Pavilion at the Kentucky Horse Park approaches, a ribbon cutting ceremony will honor the progress of the pavilion, July 9, 2010 at 6 p.m. This ceremony takes place during the Blue Grass Morgan Classic Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park. Hosting the ceremony during the Blue Grass Morgan Classic will allow many members of the Morgan community an opportunity to view the pavilion.

Prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony, a founders’ society reception will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. This closed reception will honor those Morgan Horse community members who have generously contributed to the Morgan Horse Pavilion’s capital campaign. The founders’ society reception will also include a preview of the Morgan Horse Pavilion’s interior.

After Friday’s Blue Grass Morgan Classic Horse Show, hard hat tours of the pavilion’s interior are also available for all other Morgan community members and the public.

Morton Buildings, the construction company for the Morgan Horse Pavilion, reports that the atrium glass, skylight and entry porch ceiling are completed. The framing and insulation of the pavilion are also finished. Exterior painting has been scheduled to be done by the end of this week. The drywalls are 90 and 95 percent complete on the first and second floors, respectively. Electrical installation and HVAC continues as the construction of the pavilion nears its completion.

The Morgan Horse community invites everyone to come and celebrate the achievements and progress of the Morgan Horse Pavilion. Media is welcome.

In the meantime, we encourage you to please visit to view current construction progress of the Morgan Horse Pavilion.
