The Museum’s 2013 special exhibit is sure to entertain and interest industry members and the general public. Entitled The Art of Selling with Saddlebreds: The Show Horse in Vintage Advertising, it will feature images of our breed on products, printed advertising and corporate collectibles dating from the late 1800’s through the 1970’s.
An Opening Reception will be held on Friday February 15th at 6:30 p.m. in conjunction with ASHA’s Annual Convention. The event will be “Kentucky Proud” inspired. The star of the evening will, of course, be Kentucky’s native breed of horse, but will also feature ambiance provided by Longwood Antique Woods and a complimentary premium bourbon tasting by Four Roses Distillery.
