About the American Saddlebred Museum
Located on the grounds of the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, the American Saddlebred Museum provides an exciting and educational experience. Inside, visitors learn the important role the American Saddlebred played in our nation's history, and how it 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, award-winning videos, as well as an award-winning movie.
The Museum boasts 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 research library contains over 3,000 volumes used by our members for bloodline and genealogical research. While the Museum serves as a hub and resource for the Saddlebred industry, it also educates tens of thousands of visitors annually about the beauty, versatility, and history of the American Saddlebred horse.
The American Saddlebred Museum preserves the traditions and promotes the heritage of our beautiful athletic horses, through active engagement of the general public and equine community by expanding interest and appeal in our breed.
The American Saddlebred Museum is the destination for everyone to experience history through the journey, past to present, of the horse America made — the American Saddlebred.
