About the Trip

Have you ever watched the sun rise over bluegrass or seen a horse take off down the track? Around here, “hot brown” is more than just a color, and our history is very much alive. Days are spent enjoying time on the beautiful lakes, surrounded by caves and mountains.

Join us in horse country! Opportunity is knocking and we hope you come join us in exploring the horse capital of the world. Kentucky is home to rich Appalachian culture, a heritage of great men and women, and breathtaking landmarks. Cadettes will be able to enjoy all of these marvelous things and more on the I Dream of Bluegrass Destination! So lace up your boots, bring a healthy appetite, and get ready for an adventure!

Itinerary highlights: horse farm and park visits, lakes & gorges, historical tours, artisans & antiques, service project, and more!
