Happy Holidays from Horse Country!

As the Holiday season approaches and 2016 comes to an end, we take a moment to reflect on the amazing year we have had in Horse Country. With a full year under our belt, we have learned a great deal from our amazing visitors. In case you were wondering, more than 20,000 people come through our gates in 2016! That is more than 20,000 reasons for us to be thankful this Holiday season! Words cannot express how grateful we are to the visitors that made our first year a resounding success.

Do you remember our #HorseCountryCares campaign? We sure do! We remember you selecting Old Friends to be the recipient of the $5,000 proceeds from the Breeders' Cup Festival Week tours. Money that was generated by you, the fans!

Something that is difficult to quantify is the love our guests have for the four-legged residents of Horse Country. I bet you didn't know, we even had a nun break her vow of poverty just to visit AMERICAN PHAROAH! The Triple-Crown winner has received an overwhelming amount of love and support. He has played a part in some amazing events, but that didn't stop once he retired. Just this year, Horse Country had its very first proposal on a tour of Coolmore! Ryan knelt, not before the champion, but for his now fiancé Kari. Cheers to the happy couple!

AMERICAN PHAROAH isn't the only star enjoying retirement in Horse Country! We have welcomed many new and notable additions at our member locations (link to new&notable social post). EXAGGERATOR, NYQUIST, and RUNHAPPY just to name a few.

These are olny a handful of the highlights we fondly remember from 2016, and we look forward to creating many more! The new year is bound to bring even more surprises and adventures that you do not want to miss! Be apart of the fun by booking your tour at visithorsecountry.com.
