Saddlebred Night at Spindletop Hall



Spindletop Hall and its historic connection with the Kentucky Saddlebred Horse will be celebrated with a “Saddlebred Night at Spindletop Hall” on Saturday, April 18th from 5:30-8pm. The evening will include a cocktail reception followed by “The Ultimate Saddlebred Trivia Competition.” Guests attending that evening will be asked to participate in a challenging trivia competition with questions pertaining to the Saddlebred Horse as well as the rich historical relationship between the horse and the Spindletop Farm. A short documentary “The Saddlebred Legacy; Legends and Luminaries” will also be available for viewing and assistance with the competition.

“Spindletop Farm and its owner Mrs. Pansy Yount, contributed so much to the success of the Saddlebred Horse in Central Kentucky. We have created a fun event for the Saddlebred Community that will also pay tribute and give support to the current capital campaign to repair and renovate the 77 year old mansion and grounds” explained event Committee Chair Misdee Wrigley Miller.

In addition to the reception and trivia contest, the event will include tours of Spindletop Hall, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Artifacts will also be on display from Spindletop’s historic connection to the Saddlebred-------America’s first indigenous breed that was developed in Kentucky -----including trophies, photos, halters and other items related to the period 1937-1952. Spindletop Hall was a national leader in breeding, training and the showing of Saddlebred Horses.

The cost per person for the event is $50 and reservations can be made by emailing spindletopsaddlebreds@gmail.com or by calling 859-255-2777.
