The American Saddlebred Museum is pleased to announce its re-opening on Wednesday, June 17, 2020.

Admission includes entrance to the Kentucky Horse Park.

In anticipation of re-opening, Museum staff have implemented extra precautionary measures to disinfect our spaces throughout the day. We are increasing the cleaning frequency of high-touch and high-traffic areas such as entry areas. We have installed plexi-glass shields at our front desk. We are providing additional hand sanitizers in strategic locations throughout the building. We encourage all staff, volunteers, and guests to make use of these resources. All staff will wear masks, and we encourage all guests to do so as well. Masks will be available upon request. Additionally, we are encouraging social distancing and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance between guests and staff.
Although we would love to see you when we are open, if you are sick or feeling unwell, we urge you to stay home and avoid close contact with others, as recommended by the CDC.

The Museum Gift Shop will be open to the public as well. Members of the public are encouraged to visit and shop new merchandise.

The American Saddlebred Museum and Gift Shop is located at 4083 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, Kentucky, on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park.

The American Saddlebred Museum and its gift shop are committed to supporting our equine community during this period of uncertainty. During the months of April and May 10% of the profits from your online gift shop purchase will be donated to the JLC Horsemen's Relief Fund. The Relief Fund will offer assistance to horse trainers, instructors, independent contractors, and other members who are financially distressed, such as horse show staff and vendors, who have been impacted by the COVID-19 closings.

The American Saddlebred Museum Gift Shop's online store is operating normally and can help mark significant celebrations such as birthdays and graduations that are still happening during this time of social distancing.
