Kentucky Derby Party

WHERE WILL YOU BE ON THE FIRST SATURDAY IN MAY FOR THE MOST EXCITING TWO MINUTES IN SPORTS?! 

Tickets are NOW available!! Tickets for the in-person event and for the party-to-go kits must be purchased in advance.

High Horses invites you to join friends and neighbors at our farm on Saturday, May 1 at 6 pm for a limited attendance, in-person social hour, and Kentucky Derby viewing party to benefit High Horses in support of our therapeutic riding programs.

Wear your hats. Dine on delectable hors d’oeuvres and desserts by local catering favorite The Barefoot Gourmet. Sip complimentary beer, wine, and cider, or try a refreshing and all-ages friendly Mint Julep mocktail. Place your bets, and cheer on your favorite horse in the run for the roses! We’ll see you in the Winner’s Circle for photos with one of our beloved therapy horses. And of course, no Derby party would be complete without prizes for best hat and the winning “bets” on the race.

This event will be masked, socially distant, indoor/outdoors, and with attendance limited to fifty people. Other COVID-safety protocols will be in place as well. We will be offering a virtual option available for at-home celebrations on Zoom, and a limited number of party-to-go kits featuring delicious food from the Barefoot Gourmet available for purchase and advance pick-up.

Spring is here. There’s hope in the air. Let’s have some (COVID-safe) fun TOGETHER! See you at the races!
