Comment: “The Kentucky Horse Park has initiated a new fee for non-stabled horses of $30.00 for all competitions. This which will replace the requirement for trailer parking passes. Each competition will be charged by the KHP for every non-stabled horse entered in the competition. This fee will be
collected by the event from the competitors and be paid to the KHP. The event will not receive any revenues from this fee. Please add this fee to your total on your entry form if you plan to work from your trailer rather than booking a stall.”
