Introducing Bluegrass Country

Drive through northeast Kentucky’s Bluegrass country on a sunny day, and you’ll get an idea of what the ancient Greeks might have been imagining when they wrote about the Elysian Fields of paradise. Horses graze in the brilliant green hills dotted with ponds, poplar trees and handsome estate houses. These once-wild woodlands and meadows have been a center of horse breeding for almost 250 years, and the area’s principal city, Lexington, is known as ‘Horse Capital of the World.’
