Lexington has been my Kentucky home for a number of years now, but I will never forget my first visit to the city known as the Horse Capital of the World. My first glimpse was of historic Calumet farm with its signature white four-board fencing and red-trimmed barns. A quick driving tour of some of the back roads brought classic horse country views that I’d only dreamed of, with fields of mares and foals and lush green grass. Heaven! With a tip from friendly locals, I made sure
to get up early to watch workouts at Keeneland and have breakfast at the track
kitchen. Then it was time to head over to the Kentucky Horse Park, where you can
get up close to all kinds of horse breeds, meet legendary champions (Funny Cide
is one of the famous names in residence), and experience an incredible variety of
horse sports and events. The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, Road to the Horse
Colt Starting Championship, National Horse Show and U.S. Dressage Finals are
just a few of the high profile events held there.
Moving to Kentucky brought all this to my backyard. I drive past Calumet Farm
every day and never fail to notice its beauty. I’m out at the Horse Park so often I buy
a season parking pass., and it never gets old. Horse lovers have a special appreciaion
for all that the Bluegrass has to offer, and it’s a great destination for equestrians. For
our guide to Lexington’s favorites, see “Best of the Bluegrass” on pg. 48. If you have
the chance to visit, welcome. It’s sure to be a trip to remember.
