Saddlebred Museum Exhibition Drawing To A Close


The American Saddlebred Museum, located at the Kentucky Horse Park, houses the largest collection of  Saddlebred artifacts in the world! It is currently showcasing a special exhibit, The House of Bourbon: Bourbon County's Saddlebred Kingdom, through December 30. Bourbon County, Kentucky, has long been associated with fine Bourbon and even finer Saddlebred horses.


From Civil War times through the late 1950s, Bourbon County was at the forefront of Kentucky Saddlebred activity. Many of the foremost sires in the Saddlebred registry were bred, foaled, raised or trained there. World champions and sires of world champions such as Bourbon King, King's Genius, Edna May's King and Leatherwood King all hailed from Paris and North Middletown.


The exhibit includes artwork, photographs, trophies, ribbons, tack and memorabilia. Several George Ford Morris pieces highlight the exhibit.


The American Saddlebred Museum is included with Kentucky Horse Park admission. However, ASB Museum membership includes free park admission. For more information, click on
