To our Museum Friends:

The American Saddlebred Museum is a place where people love to celebrate the history and traditions of our beautiful athletic horses.

We’ve been evaluating the best method to address and limit the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) within our community. Essentially, we need to limit the potential transmission of the virus among visitors coming from a broad range of origins. With much thought and consideration, we have decided to close the Museum from now until Monday, April 6th. The online gift shop will operate under our current normal practices. Feel free to visit our website for your online shopping needs.

Our administrative offices will operate with some limited hours and staffing, but the office functions will be uninterrupted by these changes. All vendors and visitors should contact us ahead of time before visiting the Museum office.

Thank you for your continued support as we try to help keep our community safe and healthy. We will continue to monitor the evolving circumstances and send updates as we have additional information to share. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns.

Wishing everyone good health,

Keith Kurz, President, Board of Trustees
Jennifer Foster, Executive Director

The American Saddlebred Museum is pleased to announce Emily Brown of Louisville, Kentucky is recipient of the Keith Bartz Impact Scholarship Award. The scholarship committee chose Brown from an outstanding group of nominees. The scholarship celebrates the life of Keith Bartz, who focused his time, talent and resources on building the American Saddlebred Museum and the celebration of the American Saddlebred Horse. The recipient is an individual who exemplifies the same character and enthusiasm for our breed.

Brown has been involved with the American Saddlebred for over 10 years competing in Academy divisions and 4H including the Mounted Horse Drill Team and Horse Bowl. In addition, she has worked as a camp counselor at the Louisville Equestrian Center for regular summer camps as well as HOOFKY camp, which reaches children who would not typically have the opportunity to experience horses. She is known as an outstanding teacher and mentor to young riders, encouraging excellence in horse management and riding. Her community charitable work includes involvement with the Misfit Toys Rescue Division, a Kentucky non-profit that helps locate and repurpose rescue Saddlebreds. She has worked with that organization in many capacities from horse care to the promotion and marketing of the charity.

Brown attends the University of Kentucky with a double major in Equine Business and Business Management. In addition to her studies, she competes with the UK Saddle Seat ISSRA team. Her work with the American Saddlebred and the community in general shows her enthusiasm for the breed and for the wellbeing of the community as a whole.
