About the Event

Hats Off to Kentucky's Horse Industry Day is a day to celebrate and promote Kentucky's Horse Industry

The horse industry in Kentucky generates 80,000 - 100,000 in direct and indirect jobs, and impacts our economy by an estimated 8 billion dollars!

In celebration of the horse, Kentuckians flock to the Kentucky Horse Park on Hats Off Day  for a free day of family fun and an opportunity to learn more about horses and the amazing things they do for our great state!

Events include children's activities, free pony rides, educational booths, interactive equine stations, Grand Prix Show Jumping, and much more!

The Rood & Riddle Kentucky Grand Prix, a challenging show jumping competition between top international horses and riders, is the featured evening entertainment of Hats Off Day and is taking place in the beautiful outdoor Rolex Stadium!

2017 promises to be very exciting!  There's something for everyone -- competition, a terrific book fair, great amenities and fantastic entertainment for the whole family!
