The BlackHorse Farm is a family operated horse farm located on State Route 854 in Rush, Kentucky offering horse boarding, special event hosting and pony parties. We are just minutes from Ohio and West Virginia. Our facility has 30 acres of land and trails, an unmatched 44'x110' custom built 23 stall barn featuring chandeliers, several open bay areas, and a walk around loft (great for photos). The 50'x110' indoor arena matches the barn and serves perfectly for receptions (plus you'll always have a Plan B in case of inclement weather). Ceiling heights are well over 18 feet tall. Tents, tables and chairs are available as well as straw bales for that perfect rustic look.

In July of 2017, I held my wedding ceremony and reception at The BlackHorse Farm. While every bride dreams of a flawless wedding venue, it's rare that those dreams are fulfilled. I'm extremely fortunate to have witnessed my dreams come to fruition as The BlackHorse Farm was transformed into what I had imagined over the course of time leading up to the big day. I had never been a huge proponent of outdoors ceremonies due to uncertainties associated with the weather; however, The BlackHorse Farm reduced all concerns by confirming the ceremony could be moved indoors if necessary.Sent on 09/19/2017
While many weddings mimicked the same setup and design style, I had opted for something unique and different. The owner, Jessica, was more than encouraging and had no issues with how I chose to set up for the ceremony or reception. There are so many creative options for designing a personalized ceremony. Aligning with the same creativity options, the reception area is no different. The arena was a beautiful spot to hold a wedding celebration, especially with the option to control the climate on a hot July day. We had roughly 160 guests attend and experienced no issues with space or crowding.
Regarding decor, The BlackHorse Farm was supportive of our choice to bring in numerous decorations. Beyond just adding floral arrangements to the tables, we filled the arena with plants and flowers to compliment the more neutral tones of the space. There is so much room for creative design which I appreciated greatly! Moreover, the Bride and Bridesmaids have a suite above the arena designated solely for their use where they are able to prepare for the day and store all personal items out of sight. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at The BlackHorse Farm. I highly recommend this venue to anyone interested in a rustic-style wedding venue!

I got married on June 3rd, 2017 at the Black Horse Farm and I cannot even describe how perfect my wedding was and how the owners made sure everything was exactly how I wanted it for our big day! The Black Horse Farm overly exceeded my expectations. The inside of the arena is absolutely beautiful with its woodwork and chandeliers hanging throughout. They have a concrete dancefloor with a real discoball! I have always wanted a barn wedding and when I found out it was air conditioned- I jumped on it!! Of course, you could have an outdoor wedding at this location- but with chances of rain and June heat- having it all indoor worked out perfect. They include the use of their tables and chairs- I had enough for 160+ people. There is also a projector where I put together a slideslow to kill time for our guests when we took pictures! The stable is nearby for anyone who wanted to go over and see their horses, which the kiddos loved!! They also have a shuttle now ro valet guests from parkimg to the barn!! It came in super handy wirh my grandparents and other elderly guests. Plus, there is a bridal suite above the arena with a restroom, sofa, and table. It worked out perfect for my 6 bridesmaids and I to get ready. They even let me borrow a horse to take pictures after the ceremony! The Black Horse Farm is beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone!! I checked out and toured soooo many barn wedding venues and this one is by far the best!!! You can see pictures on their website and Facebook pages- but they don't do the barn justice. It is a must see in person and you will fall in love like I did!! :) I cannot thank the Black Horse Farm enough, it was my dream wedding!Sent on 06/13/2017

We were there for a wedding and reception. It is a beautiful facility. There was a luxury golf cart to drive us the short distance to the ceremony, or we have the option to walk through the barn and pet the horses. The location is gorgeous, not too far off of the main roads, but far enough to give the feel of a remote country location.Sent on 07/15/2017
The banquet/wedding facility was so much more than I expected. Beautiful wood from top to bottom in a large open area, that was well air-conditioned, and beautifully decorated with gorgeous chandeliers. Something I did not anticipate was the sawdust covered floor. I wasn't sure about it at first, but fell in love with it. It gives a outdoorsy, barn feel but is clean and comfy enough to kick off your shoes.
The staff was incredibly professional and courteous. Very approachable and willing to help. They made every effort to accommodate any request.
My favorite part was the horses, they were in stalls in a gorgeous open barn. Several were less like horses and more like giant puppies, who would lay their head against the bars of their stall for you to pet their heads and scratch their ears. My college age daughter has decided she'll have her wedding here, when the time comes. We just have to find her the right fella. ;)
