Hats off Day is a day to celebrate and promote Kentucky's horse industry! 

In celebration of the horse, Kentuckians flock to the Kentucky Horse Park on Hats Off Day  for a free day of family fun and an opportunity to learn more about horses and the amazing things they do for our great state!

Happenings Around the Center...

The KyEHC is a tranquil 70+ acre farm and safe haven for equines in need. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. Some arrive here surrendered by their owners and others have been rescued from abuse and neglect. Once healed and (re)schooled these wonderful horses are available for adoption to become someone's best friend and partner.

Our Mission Statement is:
​To provide humane treatment and shelter while working to seek adoptive homes and provide second chances for Kentucky's equines, regardless of breed.To educate the public and raise awareness for responsible equine ownership so that fewer horses end up in crisis.To work with and serve as a model for organizations with the same mission in other states: to save America's equines from inhumane treatment.
