Kentucky Horse ParkWhen you think of Kentucky – chances are you think of horses.  The old line “there must be something in the water” really does ring true when it comes to why horses are prevalent in this part of the country.  In Lexington, Kentucky – it’s big business and a way of life for many of the people that call this place home.  There are horse farms every way you turn and no surprise – the number one attraction to see here is the Kentucky Horse Park.

It’s a Disney World of sorts for horse lovers.  During the regular season, you can watch horse shows, ride a horse, learn how horse shoes are made, explore massive museum space to learn about the history of horses – both in America and beyond.  There are also stables with prized horses that have won the Kentucky Derby.

One of the cool things about the Kentucky Horse Park is that you can walk in the front gate not knowing much of anything about horses and still spend an entire day learning and enjoying one of the beautiful animals on Earth.

I visited with Lisa Jackson of the Kentucky Horse Park for a “Re-Discovering America” segment for Bill On The Road and we talked about everything visitors will see in the park as well as why Kentucky is so famous for horses.
