Travel Tips for Lexington

On Hallowed Ground

by grandmaR

My children have competed in Kentucky several times, but not at the prestigious Olympic Level three day event. They have been there at Pony Club Rallies. When I've been there with them, I have not had much of a chance to see anything as I was tied down to the truck and camper. So I had really hoped that I could see the rest of the sites including the horses for the Parade of Breeds. They regularly host prestiguous events such as the Rolex CCI, the USEF National Pony Finals, USEF Open Reining Championships, The Pyramid Society Egyptian Event, and the United States Pony Club National Festival.

Since we visited in the winter when not much was going on, there was no one taking admissions outdoors and no one seemed to care where we went, so at my distracted direction, Bob drove all over the grounds - past the statue of Man O War, past the Pony Club Headquarters (which was closed), past the USEF offices (which was not but we didn't go in), past the National Saddlebred Museum, past the dressage rings, past the Big Barn, past the long lines of stabling, past the steeplechase course, in the middle of which I could see people working on the cross country jumps presumably for next May's three day event, past the Grill on the Hill (closed), past the building for officials, past the riding stable, all around a race course on the outside and past the Clubhouse restaurant. No one challenged us at all. The Park regularly hosts the following types of events:

Hunter/Jumper Horse Shows
Dressage Horse Shows
Three-Day Event Horse Trials
Breed Horse Shows
Rodeos
Reining Horse Shows
Pony Club Rallys
Mounted Games
Polo
Carriage Driving Events

If you are competing at the Horse Park, you will need to bring your own horse, equipment, groom and probably your coach. This is not going to be a low budget operation because as far as I know the lowest level Three Day Events that the horse park hosts is Intermediate level.

There is a riding stable at the park. That's the only way that most of us could ride there

Cheapside

by Agraichen about Cheapside

Located on Short Street just two blocks off of Broadway (one of the main roads through town) this boisterous bar is definitely designed for those out for drinks and munchies and not an older “dinner crowd.” There is an extensive outside bar area that does a great business. There is even a bar on the sidewalk to ensure you are never without while waiting. The specialty drink menu is almost as large as the food menu.

Since the town was over crowded due to the World Equestrian Games, there was a long wait for entrees so we ordered an appetizer; The spinach dip was excellent. We were warned the wait for the entrees would be long due to the crowds; the wait was not as bad as anticipated, but some of the entrees were not “up to par.” The Black Bean soup was quite bland and the salad rather wilted. The Chicken l’orange on the other hand was taste, even if quite over cooked.

It was obvious the place was more of a bar and was quite overwhelmed by the crowded. Our young student waiter was quite polite and very attentive. We did have to teach him a bit about serving wine as he brought our California Red in an ice bucket; an omission he continued to apologize profusely about.

Keeneland Racing in April and...

by jtb2inky

Keeneland Racing in April and October
This is an absolute must-do activity for anyone and everyone wishing to visit Lexington. The races are run throughout the months of April and October and are a definite cultural experience. Churchill Downs is grand but it cannot compare to the beauty of Keeneland. It is reminiscent of the races at Ascot in England. Women adorn often large and noticeable hats, while men too are often dressed to the tee. But casual is the normal attire for a day at the races. Placing bets on the race is fun, but this is a place to see and be seen. Plan on spending a full day here. And don't forget to try the Kentucky bourbon bread pudding.

Go see a horse farm

Open to visitors by appointment only.

Ashland, home of Henry Clay

by Krumlovgirl

Henry and Lucretia Clay had a home at Ashland from around 1806 until 1852. At first it was their country home and then in 1809, they moved their growing family to Ashland where they lived until he died. At one time the estate covered up to 600 acres. Hemp, tobacco and grains were grown and livestock was raised. Henry was very interested in stock breeding and imported pure bred stock, particularly sheep and cattle, from all over the world. After Henry Clay's death in 1852, his heirs sold the estate to his son, James Brown Clay. Soon after James acquired Ashland, he had the original house, which had been in bad repair since the 1820s, torn down and a new one built. The second house was completed in 1857. It followed the plan of the first one and is documented to have been built on the original foundation or at least within the original builders trench. It is a registered National Historic Landmark.
