Welcome to Bluegrass Country
Drive through northeast Kentucky's Bluegrass Country on a sunny day and glimpse horses grazing 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. The region's natural limestone deposits – you'll see limestone bluffs rise majestic from out of nowhere – are said to produce especially nutritious grass. The area's principal city, Lexington, is called the 'Horse Capital of the World.'
