SPENCER BENEDICT STABLES
Amid South Central Ky, surrounded by 70 rolling acres, you’ll find Spencer Benedict Stables. Home to Spencer and Carrie Benedict and their World Champion Tennessee Walking Horses.
This full-service facility for both training and breeding hosts four barns with a capacity of 80 stalls. However, despite their prestigious rapport and award-winning horses, there’s something else that makes their stables so memorable and leaves you thinking of their modern-day oasis long after you leave. Spencer and Carrie Benedict have mastered the art of combining world-class services, mixed with the authenticity and hospitality of a family-run farm. Their love and passion for what they do seep into every aspect of how they run the stables and is the very core of their business.
