Where are we going today?
Lexington is the Horse Capital of the world, and Horse Farm Tours is your ticket to get right up close to these amazing horse farms that produce some of the world's premier Thoroughbreds!
Over the course of about 3 hours, you can spend time with your guide visiting some pretty incredible horse farms, as well as the historic Keeneland Race Course, as well as other fascinating attractions in the local area.
Every one of the tours include a drive by Calumet, as well as a visit to two farms, as well as a walk through one of the area's super modern barns.
The goal of Horse Farm Tours is to take you INSIDE the plank fences - they want you to see the horses after their prominent racing careers have come to an end, as well as in-foal broodmares, yearlings, meanlings, and if you are lucky (depending on the time of the year) some sweet newborn foals!
The tours with Horse Farm Tours are unique, as they also give kids an insight into the real procedures of a working farm. (And you don't have to do any of the cleaning - we LOVE that!)
If you take the morning tour, you’ll be able to see the horses actually working out at the race course, but not the afternoon session. However, both sessions will be just as fascinating!
All of the guides are from Lexington, so you really will have local knowledge filling your tour! It's aways nice to come away feeling like you have had a total learning experience, and with Horse Farm Tours you will!
How much does it cost?
- Children$26 (Under 12)
When can we go?
Tours daily at 8:15am and 12:45pm
7 days a week, except certain major holidays
There isn't any food provided on the tour, but you're in Lexington! There are so many places to grab something before or after your tour. .
It never hurts to just put something in your bag for the kids during the tour, like water. No food or soft drinks allowed. .
Any Top Tips?
Try to get the morning tour so you can see the horses training at the race course! The only difference between the two tours. .
Need a little extra help?
If you do have mobility difficulties, just give them a call before hand to see what limitations your disability might have .
If you have kids under 6 you have to provide your own car seat.
The tours have various hotel pick ups, so when you book just confirm where you will be picked up from. .

I cannot thank you enough for the great tour that you gave us this year! They loved going on the back roads of Lexington to the Horse farm, and also enjoyed being able to see a farm really work. Thank you for all the information you gave us while on the tour. We would like to make the same times for next year. If we could travel on some of the back roads and see a horse farm again, that would be great

I would just like to let you know that my wife Barbara and i were very impressed with our tour guide Sue. On our tour, Sue demonstrated a wide breath of her knowledge. A friendly, and casual presentation style, plenty of good humor, and an evident love of both the horses and the Lexington area. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and we attribute that to our good fortune in having Sue as our guide

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time my family had on the tour. We were there the day before the derby and it made our derby experience even better.

My husband and I brought 3 of our grandchildren on a horse farm tour with this company in April of 2011. The driver who owns the company was our driver, an older woman and she is totally rude to SOME of her guests and it was us that day evidently. She asked where we were from and WE told her Michigan ( called us damn Yankees )and right from there she was not very nice, in fact, my husband says she was downright nasty to us, except she did take us to a farm that my 6-year old granddaughter could have her photo taken with a newborn colt.

Tour guide was a bit rude. Not worth the money.

The driver who owns the company was our driver, an older woman and she is totally rude to SOME of her guests and it was us that day evidently. She asked where we were from and WE told her Michigan ( called us damn Yankees )and right from there she was not very nice, in fact, my husband says she was downright nasty to us, except she did take us to a farm that my 6-year old granddaughter could have her photo taken with a newborn colt. After telling all on the tour to turn our cell phones off and made a big deal out of it, but, when her's rang she answered it immediately, stopping in the road, mind you, then pulled off in a driveway to complete her conversation. Our tour was supposed to be 3 hours, we got 2 hours and some minutes and she drove like a bat out of hell to get us back to the hotel where we were picked up. We're going to be in Lexington this April, too, and we are going to take our German exchange student and another of our grandkids for a tour, BUT, IT WON'T BE WITH THIS COMPANY!
