Site Location Search

We are in the process of evaluating sites for the Appalachian Horse Center, in a number of counties within Eastern Kentucky, particularly the coal-impacted area.  This area is where the most free-roaming horses are found, and is most convenient for visitors, students, individuals who will receive equine-assisted activities, and the community.  This mountainous area is beautiful, with a combination of forested valleys, creeks and flat pasture-like fields from reclaimed coal land that now are growing grass as well as trees.

The combination of horse herds, mountains and valleys will make the Appalachian Horse Center a pleasure to come visit and even participate in equine and other adventure tourism activities.

  1. I was born and raised n Leslie County. We still have our old home there and visit there often. Leslie County would be an idea location for the Appalachian Horse Center. The Hal Rogers Park Way runs all the way through Leslie County with excellent access to I-75, and pathways to large cities, such as Louisville, Cincinnati and Knoxville. It is home to The Frontier Nursing University, The famous Mary Breckinridge, The Osborne Brothers, Foot ball Great, Tim Couch, and veterans Cemetery, along with many other attributes. There are many people needing work in Leslie County, and we need this Horse Center to bring jobs and opportunities to our good people. Thank you, Betty Barger Pace
