We were on the Buffalo Gals Quilt Trail, there is a quilt square at Old Friends. So glad we stopped by for photo opportunity. The ladies in the office were so friendly. They educated us on Old Friends and we educated them on quilt trailing.

Adults are $10, children ages 6-12 are $5. Children 5 and under are free. I am a long-time volunteer and the proceeds benefit the continued care of the horses. Thank you.

Should we bring our own carrots for the horses, or can you get them at the farm?

Old Friends does not offer trail rides, but The Kentucky Horse Park does. Old Friends are retired race horses that enjoy meeting the fans & eating carrots.
