The American Saddlebred Museum, located at the world renowned Kentucky Horse Park, celebrates the horse that was named for this country. He has carried pioneer children and Civil War Generals; he has pulled buggies that have carried doctors to their patients and families to their places of worship. Now we enjoy him in competition and just for the pleasure of owning him. The American Saddlebred and the people who have taken the journey with him are intertwined with the texture of our country’s history. Our mission at the Museum is to remember this rich and storied past by collecting artifacts, preserving them for future generations and displaying them so that the history of this horse and the people who have surrounded him is not forgotten.
The American Saddlebred, now known as the Peacock of the Show Ring, is the show horse all other breeds emulate. His intelligence, beauty, athleticism and versatility make him suitable for a variety of uses and disciplines and for riders and drivers of all ages.
