Coming Soon to Kentucky Horse Park: New Barns!

If you paid a visit to Kentucky Horse Park for LRK3DE this year (or any other horse show that utilizes the main stabling complex), you might have noticed a very different setting to greet you. The older barns that have played host to hundreds of incredible horses over the years have been razed with plans for brand-new stabling in the works from GH2 Equine Architects.

“The new construction, planned to start this fall, includes two 100-stall pavilions that combine shed-row and center aisles to maximize the number of stalls and provide ample access for trailers and exhibitors,” GH2 Equine Architects shared in a social media update. “A comfortable eave height and overhead HVLS fans encourage proper ventilation for horses (and people) attending Kentucky Horse Park’s action-packed warm season events. Restrooms, wash racks, and muck pits located in each barn help reduce the number of steps caretakers need to take, maximizing their time with their horses!”

The Horse Park took into account numerous responses from patrons collected during a public survey process, and the resulting ideas will be put into place in time for the spring show season in 2024.

You can follow the Kentucky Horse Park and GH2 Equine Architects on social media for the latest construction updates. We’ll be looking forward to an official unveiling later this year!
