The games, which are sponsored by John Deere, are held every four years, although this is the first time they are happening in the U.S. People who want to take a break from the equestrian events can hit up the Kentucky Experience Pavilion, which showcases some of the state's products.
For example, attendants can get a sampling of the state's famous Bourbon whiskey at a tasting area in the pavilion.
"I tell them everything behind the bar is made from Kentucky, including myself," said Thaxton Marshall, a bartender at the pavilion. "They like that. They are excited there is so much to try."
Liquor isn't everyone's thing, and the pavilion has a lot more to offer. Each of the state's nine tourism regions is represented, and bluegrass music is also featured.
The games run through October 10 and showcase equestrian events such as dressage, jumping, vaulting and reining. Sponsor John Deere also has an area where it is showcasing a wide array of its equipment.
