Join Old Friends 
"Horses Healthy at Home" 

As you are likely aware, the current global health crisis has caused us to halt our tourism operations and quarantine the farm. Good news: We have begun a partial reopening, and we're so happy to welcome back small numbers of guests as we continue to adhere to CDC guidelines and those set forth by the Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Health. Bad news: It's still a fraction of our usual tourism traffic, and we know that due to health concerns and/or travel restrictions many of you may still not be able to visit. 

With only small numbers of visitors, and with the cancellation of our annual farm fundraising events, a significant revenue stream has dried up. As we continue to weather this crisis, many of you have asked us how you can help. So we decided to offer our friends and supporters this targeted set of sponsorship opportunities to keep our supply chains healthy. Maybe there's one here that fits your budget. We'll even include a free gift!

If you are interested in sponsoring an item, please make checks payable to 
Old Friends and return to:
