Road To The Horse Postponed Due to Coronavirus

Posted on March 12, 2020 by Press Release

Taking caution, The Road To The Horse has postponed its event in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement posted on the Road To The Horse website, event producers said the following:

“In an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to postpone Road to the Horse, scheduled for March 19-22, at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena.

This decision was made today in conjunction with the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, the Kentucky Horse Park, and in consultation with the Governor’s Office as part of the Commonwealth’s ongoing effort to ensure the health and wellness of the public as Kentucky fights aggressively to prevent the spread of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus.

At this time, we are investigating our options for rescheduling the event and will provide details as soon as possible.”
