Kimie is so friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell she loves what she does and loves sharing her work with others. We took a horse drawn carriage ride around the horse country farms while Kimie shared so many interesting details about raising, breeding, and training horses. Even if you aren't a big horse lover, you will appreciate the amount of work and care that goes into this lifestyle. If you're in the Ocala area and looking for something to do, I highly recommend this tour.

If you love horses this is a tour that should not be missed. Our family of 3 took this tour with Kimie. It was my husband, myself and our 15 year old son. We arrived at the barn and we were greeted by a friendly barn cat. We were petting him and up comes another that looked pretty much the same. Then another 3 came up...we love cats. So they were the pre show. We were able to watch Kimie put the pulling harnesses on Tiny Prince Charming, not tiny, think he was 18.3 hands. Such a big beautiful horse. Was interesting watching Kimie get him harnessed and hooked to the carriage. Then off on the tour we went. Such a leisurely tour through the horse country of Ocala. Kimie was very informative of so many things about Ocala, about the different kinds of horses, about the different disciplines. Stories of celebrities in the area, stories about the training facilities and famous race horses. Kimie made the tour very enjoyable, I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks so much Kimie and Tiny Prince Charming!

Special kudos to Kimie for being such a wonderful, well-versed guide. She added so much to the experience with her sense of humor, her genuine friendliness, and her extensive knowledge of the horses and the rich history surrounding them. You will enjoy this tour!

Florida has more than great beaches and theme parks...Florida has an amazing, world class 'horse country' in the heart of the state, and Kimmie at Horse Country Carriage Tours is the perfect person to tell the story! She makes setting up your trip easy, when you meet her you feel like you've always known her, she knows her stuff and shares Florida's horse country history, insider stories and fun facts about famous properties, winning horses and colorful people. All with a great sense of humor and while expertly coaxing her draft horse(s) to pull your carriage past one horse farm after another, letting you hop out to interact with the curious horses who come to the fenceline to see who's visiting today. After the ride, you can roam Kimberton Farm at your leisure, visiting the horse barns and paddocks and perhaps get to watch some of University of Florida's equestrian team working on the track or in the jumping area. Overall it was one of the best weekend escapes we've had in a long time!
