Boots & Bridles Gala

NOTICE- Shelby County Parks Foundation is grateful to all those who have supported or participated in fund-raisers that sent proceeds to Shelby Trails, Greenway Trails and general parks maintenance. Our dedicated team of volunteers who coordinates the events need a break so BOOTS & BRIDLES, WOOFSTOCK and PARK’S PEDAL PARTY will not take place in 2019. Donations, especially for Greenway Trails, are still needed and accepted. Please make check payable to Shelby County Parks Foundation (501c3), 715 Burks Branch Rd, Shelbyville KY 40065, noting donation to Greenway Trails.
Thank you again, Clay Cottongim, volunteer consultant.


Thanks to all those who attended the 2018 Boots & Bridles Equestrian Gala on May 19. Historic Undulata Farm was the ideal setting once again for the fund-raiser to benefit Shelby Trails, a 462- acre tract at 5063 Aiken Road that was deeded to the Parks Foundation in 2010 by Dr. Roger and Diane Shott… who attended the 2018 event.

Food, fun and friendship filled the horse barn for dinner, cocktails, live and silent auction items as well as door prizes. One auction item was a live concert by JD Shelburne, Kentucky’s Country Rocker who performed at Boots & Bridles.
