Derby City Stables and Parks

Saddle Up Anywhere in Louisville

Horseback riding in Derby City – that’s a winning combination. There are plenty of opportunities to ride in Louisville, thanks to parks and inner city stables.

Louisville is known as Derby City thanks to the annual Kentucky Derby – a world-famous event held since 1875. For over a century, the first Saturday in May is reserved for the “Race for the Roses” – the last day of the two-week Kentucky Derby Festival. Found yourself in Louisville during the spring? Grab a big hat, and head to Churchill Downs for some old-fashioned thoroughbred racing in Louisville.

Head to McNeely Lake Park in southeastern Louisville for a short ride fit into the morning or afternoon activities. Open daily and throughout the year, the McNeely Riding Stables allow you to choose from a 30-minute trek to a two-hour journey. Hop on and see the beauty of this city park just south of McNeely Lake during a dazzling day in Kentucky. Another option is the Iroquois Riding Stables at Iroquois Park in southwestern Derby City, or Long Run Park’s riding stables in eastern Louisville.

No matter where you ride in Derby City, you can be met with a Best Western hotel in Louisville. Whether staying near Elizabethtown or Carrollton, or visiting friends and family in Clarksville or Shelbyville, a comfortable room is not far off. Soak up the sun and the convenience of Louisville this vacation on horseback.
