This is a very interesting and unique place to visit. They have interesting exhibits and shows. You have to plan carefully to hit all the show as you want as they are at specific times during the day. Some walking involved so plan on that.

Spent the whole day there. Follow the suggested schedule to see exhibits. Staff was very informative and friendly. Took the 1215 trail ride. It was just a trail ride, kind of dull but through pretty hillside. Recommend Park for all horse lovers.
