Churning, deadly Irma up close
The Kentucky Horse Park announced on Wednesday that they will be offering shelter for horses evacuated from the path of Hurricane Irma.
From Wednesday until Sept. 17, the park will open 200 stalls for a rate of $20 a night on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Horses will have to have a negative Coggins test before being lodged at the park, according to the announcement. No pasturing, lunging or riding will be possible due to “contractual obligations” with previously scheduled horse shows.
Stalls can be reserved by calling the park’s equine operations department at 859-259-4290 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Any other information will be listed on the Kentucky Horse Park website.
