Welcome to NKHN

Welcome to NKHN

We are a Non-Profit, 501c3, group of horse enthusiasts from the Northern Kentucky area. We hold clinics on everything from trailer driving to horse shoeing. We have trail rides and horse shows. We also get together just to socialize and share stories. We are involved in educating on abuse and neglect and supporting Large Animal Emergency Rescue. We also build and maintain trails and promote trail riding. We are a collaborative effort among the UK Cooperative Extension, the Conservation Service, horse owners, riders, trainers, educators and equine businesses from all breeds and disciplines. We are an “all volunteer” group.

We hope you can join us!

“Recognized as the 2008 Most Active Horse Group”, the Kentucky Horse Council has credited NKHN as the type of organization that “exemplifies the type of regional organization that the KHC would like to see develop throughout the state.”
