Kentucky considers itself the "Horse Capital of the World" as well as being home to a great selection of Kentucky bed and breakfast lodging options. In the 1700's the horse breeders discovered that the rich limestone deposits of the Bluegrass Region nourished the thoroughbreds and a tradition was begun. The Lexington area now has more than 450 horse farms as well as the American Saddlebred Museum, the Kentucky Horse Park and several racetracks. Of course the most famous track is Churchhill Downs in Lousiville, which is also home to many a Kentucky bed breakfast.
