Horse Country Tour
Central Kentucky is home to more than 450 working thoroughbred horse farms. These farms cover miles of beautiful rolling hills of the heart of our Bluegrass Region.
* Your visit could include a tour of a stallion barn at one of the world's most famous thoroughbred farms where Derby horses reside. While there you will meet the grooms that care for these most valuable of horses.
* Or your visit may include touring a horse farm for mares and foals. If you visit in late winter or early spring you may get to see a brand new foal. The sight of a newborn foal still unsteady on his feet or nursing from his mother will warm your heart.
* Your tour could include a trip to Keeneland Race Course, a National Historic Landmark. Keeneland is home to the most prestigious horse sales in the world. Keeneland gently merges country elegance and racing excitement. You may choose to go shopping in Midway, Kentucky, also a national historic landmark if you forgo Keeneland.
This is a seven to eight hour tour offered for groups of 10 or more.
