The Appalachian Horse Project, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) partnering with Eastern Kentucky officials, landowners, horsemen and animal lovers to ensure that the practice of free-roaming horses continues in a responsible manner, and that any herds of unowned horses are managed to a sustainable level.

We also use horses as a way to help humans, including equine therapy, 4-H projects, trail rides, horse events, and community functions involving horses.

AHP Programs Include:

  • Tours to see the free-roaming horse herds

  • Equine Therapy

  • A trailhead for an extensive network of equestrian trails


Local officials and AHP are in the process of fundraising to construct the Center in Breathitt County, on a site donated by a local landowner. The Center will be located close to the largest herds of free-roaming horses.

Tours are being offered now with the starting location in Jackson, KY on Route 15.

The facilities will be available to the community and for rental for events.
