About the Museum

The National Steeplechase Museum is the only museum in the United States dedicated solely to the national story of steeplechasing, and to the horses, people and places that have influenced its history. Located on the historic Springdale Race Course, the museum holds a wealth of knowledge about the amazing athletes, both equine and human, who have become champions in this exciting sport.
