The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation has established a Cigar Memorial Fund and is honored to accept memorial gifts in Cigar’s name. Proceeds from the Cigar Memorial Fund will be used towards a statue and landscaping surrounding Cigar’s grave. Any funding that remains will be directed towards the care of the Kentucky Horse Park’s resident horses. The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is privileged to play a role in memorializing this great horse. We hope you will consider supporting our efforts to celebrate the life of our beloved Cigar. Gifts to the Cigar Memorial Fund may be made online here or sent to Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, 4089 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, KY 40511, or by calling 859-255-5727.

Over twenty years ago, the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation presented the first ever driving tour of holiday lights, aimed at attracting the local community. Today Southern Lights has evolved to attract over 120,000 visitors each year from across Kentucky and surrounding states and is regularly chosen as a Top 20 Event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Boasting over four miles of lights, Southern Lights continues to grow and improve each year, adding additional holiday displays along the driven route and expanding its Holiday Festival attractions.
Indeed, every day presents a fresh challenge at the Kentucky Horse Park, and the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation exists to help the park rise to the occasion. We firmly believe the KHP is the world’s leading equestrian destination because of the support of friends like you.
Charitable contributions to the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation provide the private support necessary for the Kentucky Horse Park to fulfill its primary missions. We appreciate your gift, as it is vital to sustaining and growing these programs we all enjoy.
The Education Department of the Kentucky Horse Park strives to be a vital member of the horse industry and the community at large by serving as a center for equine education and learning. There are a number of programs within this department which will greatly benefit from increased funding.
