The Kentucky Horse Park-site of the 2010 World Equestrian Games, will offer you a chance to experience a variety of thrills from the newly constructed arenas, variety of horse breeds, beautiful visitor's center and gift shop and a large museum currently featuring THE HORSE from the American Museum of Natural History.  Set on over 1,200 beautifully manicured acres there are plenty of things to offer any visitor.   The Horse Park is also the location of many breed organization offices as well as the USDF, USEF and Pony Club headquarters and of course our very own FHANA office which will be open from 2-5 on Friday.  A special demonstration will be done on Friday and Saturday at 2:30 either in the Big Barn aisle or the Breeds Barn arena (depending upon the weather) by Jannie Giles, a very successful and long time Friesian and Saddlebred trainer from nearby Pleasureville, KY.  Jannie will use several of her own horses to present "101 Uses for your Friesian".   She will be comparing the different body conformations of our Friesians and how they can best be used to bring out their individual talents.   Jannie will also introduce the crowd to some simple and fun trick training methods that anyone can do with their horses.  Allow yourselves plenty of time to enjoy the Park and this demo.
