Trainers’ Treasures: Gifts From Saddlebred Professionals



The American Saddlebred Museum’s 2016 exhibit will open to the public on April 1, 2016. Titled Trainers’ Treasures: Gifts From SaddlebredProfessionals, the exhibit runs through December 31, 2016.

Trainers’ Treasures will consist of items that have been donated to the Museum over the past 50 years by professional horsemen and women from within the Saddlebred industry. Paintings, photographs, sculptures, and tack collected by or used by famous Saddlebred trainers and their horses will be included. Some of the items were created by the donors, some were used by the donors and some were collected by the donors. This will be a diverse exhibit, filled with items of importance to the industry and to the professionals who donated them.

The American Saddlebred Museum and Gift Shop, aka The Showplace for Saddlebreds, is located on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park, and is open daily from 9 am – 5 pm. Admission to the Museum also includes free admission to the Kentucky Horse Park. As always, current Museum members receive free admission to both the Showplace for Saddlebreds and the Kentucky Horse Park, as well as 10% off on Gift Shop and online purchases. If you are attending the Kentucky Spring Premier Horse Show April 14 - 16, 2016, be sure to stop by the Museum to see this exhibit!
