Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm and an educational theme park opened in 1978. The equestrian facility is a 1,224-acre (4.95 km2) park dedicated to "man's relationship with the horse."
Each year the park is host to a number of special events and horse shows.

A number of horse sculptures stand in the Kentucky Horse Park, including a Man o' War statue on a pedestal near the entrance, over the horse's grave, which was moved here from Faraway Farm during the establishment of the park in the 1970s. There is also a life-size statue of the 1973 U.S. Triple Crown winner Secretariat with jockey Ron Turcotte aboard being led by groom Eddie Sweat. From harness racing, there is a statue of Bret Hanover.
