Horse Property and Horse Activity in Kentucky -
Kentucky is the home of literally thousands of horse operations , and over a million acres is used for them. Main uses are first for r farms or ranches, then personal use, followed by boarding/training establishments, and breeding.

Thoroughbreds are the most popular in numbers, then Quarter Horses, followed by Tennessee Walkers, and Saddlebreds. After the saddle horses, come donkeys and mules, then the Mountain Horse Breeds, followed by the Standardbred.

The list of primary use of these breeds is as follows: First and by a large number is Trail Riding and Pleasure, followed by broodmares, then show horses or competition horses. Below this in number but still a very healthy percent is the annual yearlings, weanlings and foals. Then comes the race horses, and breeding stallions. There are also horses used for work or transportation.

All this being said, with the extent to which horses are popular in Kentucky, it would be hard indeed not to find a representative of every current USA horse breed, and probably more than USA!! Kentucky is horse country for sure.
