“Worth one visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

These beautiful horses are worth seeing one time, and the chance to pet a baby Clydesdale was great too, but this will probably not rank high on most people's all-time favorites list. But if you're in the area and you like horses, check it out.

“Big, Bigger, Biggest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Get up close to these magnificent animals and hearing the stories from the owners. A great field trip for a school or family as well. It doesn't hurt to love horses too.

“More than a Horse Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

As a side trip while on vacation to Puckaway Lake WI. our small group (Mother age 92, two sisters,1 daughter and 1 husband) made the country drive to a very special place-Larson's Famous Clydesdales. The place was worth the drive even though we missed the correct turn our fault for talking. When we got there the tour started right with our greeting from owner Judy Larson. It is always a pleasure to see people working with animals with full passion. Both she and her husband were great at what they do- the beautiful horses were the proof. The Farm is small but packed with fine detail. We met horses at every turn and even had the opportunity to pet and photograph a baby Clydesdale! The Larson's are a treat for all ages and we all learned quite a bit about this special breed of horse.

“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

The owners met us at the driveway and we had a few minutes to meet and pet four of their team of horses. The show started there, went on to see the trailers, equipment and tack. The show in the grandstand was awesome and informative. Bud (the horse) loved being the star of the show. We were fortunate enough to get a chance to meet a three week old Clydesdale and were never rushed in our exploration of their premises, or our interactions with the horses. We used the AAA directions to get there and found them most helpful. We were fourtunate to be a very small group, less than a dozen people. This ws a major treat and one couple in our group can't wait to take their grown daughter (and horse enthusiast) to experience the same joy. We loved it.

“Ripon/ rip off”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2010

My husband brought me( 5 hr trip) to see these beautiful horses for my birthday. Granted it was very enjoyable to be close to them but other than that we were really disapointed. First of all to find this place was very fustrating. Roads weren"t marked , we almost missed the small home made signs directing us to the farm. Others in our group said the same thing. When we did get there , there was only room for 3 cars to park( were do they put the bues to tourist?) It was a small group that day we were there because a tour group buse broke down and wouldn"t be there until the next day. But because it was a small group they did not have grandstand performance (we did not see even were this was--whole farm was only 5 acres). They were also to demastrate harnessing and braiding on one of ther geldings. That was not done either because the gelding they used for that was keep a colt company in the barn--they had just taken the colt away from its mother. They had other geldings that they could of demastated with. Judy was very boastful about her horses and putting down others ( Budweiser and Cambells) that did not sit good with us. It was not our fault the bus did not make it or they separtated the colt but did state in there ad show and tour rain or shine. The next day Mn and Wi had heavy rain and flooding --did the show go on? And as for the museum was only ONE antique wagon you could only see the front of it. The souvenir shop was a rundown 1 stall garage. They did not offer any competation .
