When it opened to the public in 1978 the Kentucky Horse Park was billed as the only venue of its kind dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. Critics of the $28M project called it a "White Elephant" that would never be anything more than a costly government experiment. But over time, with several major investments, the horse park has become an important part of the state’s economy and a lasting symbol of Kentucky's identification as the horse capital of the world. Now close to forty years later the people who run the park are turning their attention to the future with several visioning sessions. Samantha Lederman attended one such meeting earlier this week and she files this report.
