In collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, the Kentucky Horse Park’s International Museum of the Horse is hosting a new exhibition, “The Horse” through April 6.
Bill Cooke, director of the International Museum of the Horse, says he is glad this exhibition will be occurring while school is in session.
“We are excited that this will be our first blockbuster-level exhibition while schools are in session,” he said. “I have no doubt that both teachers and their students will love ‘The Horse.’”
“The Horse” will explore the horse’s earliest ancestors and the bond between horses and humans. Additionally, the horse’s impact on trade, transportation, war, culture, labor and sports will be discussed.
Cooke says the American Museum of Natural History “did a masterful job in developing an exhibition that not only illuminates the timeless union between humans and horses, but does so in an amazingly entertaining way.”
Kentucky Horse Park is open seven days a week through Nov. 6. Admission is $16 for adults and $8 for children ages 7 to 12.
From Nov. 7 to March 14, the Horse Park is open Wednesdays through Sundays. Winter admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 7 to 12. Children age 6 and under are always admitted free.
“The Horse” can also be viewed with museum only tickets, which can be purchased for $8 for adults and $4 for children ages 7 to 12.
