When you think about horses, think about Minnesota. Minnesota is horse country as well as lake country. Rated 10th in the nation, Minnesota has more horses (236,000) than many states with a horse reputation. Minnesota is the home of many national and international horses and horsemen, plus home of Canterbury Park, the most modern horse racing facility in the country. Minnesota: a lake state, an education state, a horse state; we have it all. The cultural and entertainment center of Minneapolis-St. Paul is just twenty minutes away. We are in the center of great horse country and Minnesota’s famous lakelands. Please accept our invitation to visit us and inspect our facilities.
