The American Saddlebred Museum & Gift Shop

The American Saddlebred Museum, Gallery and Gift Shop is the ultimate "Showplace for Saddlebreds". Located on the grounds of the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, the Museum provides an exciting and educational experience. Inside, visitors learn the important role the ASB played in our nation's history, and how he has evolved into the elegant, athletic and versatile breed we know today. The Museum features special exhibitions that change annually as well as a wide variety of interactive permanent exhibits, a children's area and an award-winning theater show.

The ASB Museum houses the largest collection of Saddlebred artifacts in the world. Our archives house trophies, photographs, tack, and artwork, including one of the most extensive collections of George Ford Morris Saddlebred artwork. Our library houses over 2,500 volumes used by our members for bloodline and genealogical research. While the Museum serves as a resource to the Saddlebred industry, it also educates tens of thousands of visitors annually about the beauty, versatility and history of the American Saddlebred horse.
