In 1875, Churchill Downs hosted the first Kentucky Derby. And since then Kentucky has been making its mark as the epicenter of the sport of kings. Horses are Kentucky’s pride and joy, and reclaiming that history is ours.
Central Kentucky is now home to over 450 horse farms and breeds the top race horses in the world. Each and every May, April and October, thousands of visitors gather to watch and wager on these majestic creatures.
At Old World Timber, we’re in the business of wood, but also of stories. We take the ageing fences the horses live alongside and turn that materiel into floors, walls and beautiful accents. When these fences are built, they are made of 100% American oak; premium hard-wood material. Each and every piece of wood carries the history of the farms they have contained, the horses that have chewed them, and the decades of Kentucky’s equestrian prestige.
