Our fun and informative horse farm tours (approximately 3 hours in length) take you through the heart and soul of Kentucky's beautiful blue grass horse country. Drive by, see and hear the history of Calumet horse farm, home of a breeding and racing dynasty that dominated the sport of kings during the 1940s, 1950s and beyond. Step out and enjoy a walking tour of the ivy-covered grounds of historic Keeneland Race Course, home to the planet's most expensive horse auctions. Take a peek at the thoroughbred horse lifestyle as we take you behind the scenes to explore a premier thoroughbred horse farm and visit up close and personal with their famous horses. We'll even see where scenes from the major motion pictures Secretariat, Seabiscuit and Dreamer were filmed. « less

I can't say much more than anyone else ... perfection is difficult to improve upon, and this tour was just that! My mom and I had 24 hours in Lexington, and we signed up for the morning tour, which began at 9am. Dan picked us up at our downtown hotel, and we were spellbound for the next 3+ hours. We... More

Our guide, Dan, loves the horse industry, Lexington, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It's obvious! His tour is fun, interesting, and full of pride for the sport. Along the single-lane backroads that wind between the horse farms, we stopped and petted the horses, heard the history, and learned the names of the people and the horses who are king in... More

John White was our tour guide and he was excellent, giving us lots of facts about the area, etc. We had 6 couples from Illinois, traveling together, and we enjoyed the tour immensely. John even gave us a hint for a great lunch place on our way home. Thanks, John. Sincerely, LookingGlass Corvette Club

Our family just visited Kentucky for the first time (my daughter was competing at the Kentucky Horse Park) so we wanted to tour a few horse farms, not knowing the area at all. Not only was our guide on-time, picked us up at our hotel, and was very pleasant - but he even brought umbrellas for everyone (in case it... More

We enjoyed every minute of Matt's commentary and his commitment to our education about the horses, farms, and horse racing. He was well versed in the entire scope of needed information and made our discussions with him as we travelled interesting, humorous, and fun. We felt that he was an excellent choice for our tour guide. Thanks for providing more... More
