Kentucky Horse Park invites field trips, offers financial assistance


The Kentucky Horse Park and International Museum of the Horse invite teachers and your students for a field trip experience that connects their programs to Kentucky standards and your class curriculum.

During a field trip to the park, students will visit the International Museum of the Horse, the Kids Barn, the Hall of Champions, the Big Barn and Breeds Barn. Lunches are typically picnic style, weather permitting. Field trips can be scheduled year-round.

The Kentucky Horse Park Field Trip Fund has been expanded to offer admission support for all Kentucky public schools during the 2018-2019 school year. The scholarship program covers the full cost of admission for each Kentucky public school student (grades K-12), their teachers and up to one chaperone per 10 students. A bus fund also is available to help with transportation costs (up to $100 per school).

The field trip fund is available on a first-come, first-served basis while funding remains. While field trips are scheduled year-round, the scholarship assistance is for trips made by Oct. 31.
