Small-town Friendliness

Just Miles from the ‘Big City’ Louisville.

Shelbyville, Kentucky, located in the heart of Shelby County, was founded in 1792 and, like the county, was named for Isaac Shelby. Referred to by many as “The Saddlebred Capital of the World,” Shelbyville is a very diverse community rich in culture, history and industry. Shelbyville’s small town friendliness has a big town appeal for the young and the young at heart.

Enjoy historic downtown Shelbyville or spend the day watching the Great Bison roam the bluegrass. To the horse enthusiast, Shelbyville is the American Saddlebred Show Capital; enjoy the beauty and style of competition by attending the Annual Shelbyville Horse Show.
