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!
$26 (Under 12)
The tours have various hotel pick ups, so when you book just confirm where you will be picked up from.
Try to get the morning tour so you can see the horses training at the race course! The only difference between the two tours.
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.
Healthy Eating It never hurts to just put something in your bag for the kids during the tour, like water. No food or soft drinks allowed.
