Stopping at the Big Spunk rest area, I found a refreshing rest stop. A historical marker was located there that concerned the settlement of the Benedictines between 1854 and 1847. Located nearby is the “Big Spunk Lake”, for which the rest stop was named.

As I drove by the Kentucky Horse Park, off I75, I decided to stop and see what it was about.  The Kentucky Summer Horse Show was being held at a new Alltech Arena. The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm/theme park and equine competition facility dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. The park is home to the National Horse Center that comprises more than 30 national and regional equine organizations. A new Outdoor Stadium was just completed and is one of several major components of capital improvement that are allowing the Kentucky Horse Park to attract large horse shows and other events to Kentucky.
