It is an amazing man who turned his land into a place were retired race horses could live out their remaining years. They let you feed and pet the horses and give you amazing history of the horses they have on the farm.

The work these people do to care for these older horses is outstanding. They give them all the care they need with nothing but love in return. I highly recommend taking a tour. The fee is only a donation of your choice to the farm. You will see some high $$ racehorses, some old retirees and even a miniature horse.......all... More

If you have any respect for the Thoroughbred horse, or even if you don't understand this breed and the racing industry, you MUST visit this retirement farm. You will touch, pet and feed lots of carrots and horse cookies to the famous, and sometimes forgotten, Thoroughbreds that were money-makers in their prime, but now are old men living their last...

Tour of farm where horses are brought when no longer able to run or sire. Great to see the horses have some where to go later on.

I love this place and commend Michael for following his dream and making a difference in the lives of our animal brethren. I've been here three times now and have enjoyed every visit thoroughly. I don't want to leave when the tour is over. Such a beautiful spot on earth. The horses deserve this retirement after earning their way in... More

We have visited Dream Chase Farm three times and enjoyed each visit. One trip was much longer than the other two and our daughter ended up bored. We were able to be very close to the horses and even feed some treats. A short video of some of the residents begins the tour, followed by a walking tour. Wear walking... More

... to Michael Blowen and his faithful volunteers for providing an awesome home for these magnificent athletes. After their owners has drained all possible money from them, they at least have the decency to allow them to live out their lives with dignity. I asked Mr. Blowen if he continues to train or exercise the horses, but he said, "no,... More

Some of the horses are absolutely sweet-- Ogygian has to be one of the nicest horses! It's good to know that there is a... More

What a great time. Wonderful tour of the horses, and was able to hand feed them carrots. Great information given by staff, and loving care was obvious. Do not miss.
