Spring is a wonderful time of year. In Kentucky, Spring is all about the horse. Kentucky lays claim to the “Horse Capital of the World” with more than 450 horse farms in the area. Spring is a busy time of year when fouls are being born and horse are being prepared for competitions and upcoming races.
The world’s “Most exciting two minutes in sports”, the Kentucky Derby, is held the first Saturday in May at Louisville’s Churchill Downs.
The Kentucky Horse Park, the only park in the world dedicated exclusively to the horse, will host the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. It will be the first time the Games have been held outside Europe.
My family and I love to visit the Kentucky Horse Park. The park is home to some 115 horses representing approximately 50 different breeds during the main summer season. Most of these horses are housed in barns throughout the main area of the park. Literally thousands of additional horses ship in to the park to compete in horse shows throughout the year.
I created this layout with Kiki Art’s new collection, Hot Air Balloon. The outdoor theme is just perfect for my recent photos from the Kentucky Horse Park.
