Martha was recommended to us by our AirBnB host. Wow! We were blown away! Martha Martin is SO knowledgeable about both horses and also the Lexington area. She picked us up (we were masked in the vehicle) and she drove us to Claiborne Farm and a smaller farm as well. The whole way she told us about historic Lexington - which was wonderful! At both Claiborne and the smaller farm she continued telling us about horses (famous ones, history of horses, basically anything that we wanted to know). I can’t recommend her enough! Thanks so much, Martha, for a fantastic time!!

Martha picked us up and returned us to our campground. We toured three horse farms and learned a lot about the horse industry. Martha was great! We loved the personal tour!
Highly recommend Martha’s tour!

We visited Lexington from Sep 16-19 2010. Our oldest daughter rides horseback and she wanted to see some farms. We had decided not to take the traditionally tours offered by different companies, but to take a personalised tour. On the internet we found UnBridled Horse Tours.
They asked us what we like and what we are interessed in, so they could propose an itenary. Everything was aranged by e-mail and when we arrived at our hotel in Lexington Nancy "Hap", a lifelong rider, educator, and equine enthusiast contacted us to welcome us.
She arranged for us a day we will never forget. We met at Keenland Track Kitchen where she explained what she had planned for us: a privat visit to the Darby Dan Farm, the WinStar Farm and the Audubon Farm. During these visits she told us a lot of interesting things, even for people that are not that interested in horses and she arranged that a manager told us of the little histories of their farm and horses. We ended our tour at the Yearling Sales where we had the opportunity to met the buyers and the sellers.
We appreciated Nancy's charming appearance, whilst her excellent knowledge of the thoroughbred has given us a broader view about her passion.
You can book them for as long as you want and they charge you by the car. We had booked a tour of 3 hours and it was worth every penny.
If we are in Lexington, Ky we definitely will contact her to book an other tour.

We visited Kentucky for the Derby and stayed in Lexington. After the Derby we wished to visit Perryville and Shaker village, but there are no such tours to these sites. We found Nancy "Hap" through the Lexington visitor guide. She was wonderful and spent the whole day with us, showed the Kentucky countryside, Perryville and where and what we wanted to see and more all at our pace.I shall be recommending her to our travel agents in Australia and have already spoken of her services to the manager of the Griffin Gate in Lexington.
All in all a truly wonderful experience of which we shall have memories for years

We have visited family in Lexington a couple of times, and this time we made a spur of the moment decision to try a Horse Farm Tour. Our aunt, Karen, suggested UnBridled Horse Tours which is operated by some tennis mates of hers. We really didn't know what to expect, especially on the short notice we were throwing out, but Hap (Nancy Hapgood) was free that day, and accomodated us. Because there was four of us, Hap met us at the house, and my husband was the driver because we had a bigger vehicle. That kicked off an intimate, knowledge-filled excursion that I will always remember. Although we called at the last minute, Hap lined up a tour to a horse farm that has a swimming pool for rehabilitation, a tour through Hill 'n' Dale Farm to see the resting place of Seattle Slew, and a drive through of Donamire Farm, a 650 acre thoroughbred horse farm owned by Don and Mira Ball. Donamire is widely recognized for its picturesque stone barns with steeply pitched slate roofs, cupolas and spires set among fifteen miles of curving white fences that follow the contours of the rolling hills. Probably my most favorite part was a visit to Darby Dan Farm, a stud farm. We toured the facilities, learned about the breeding process, and watched three beautiful stallions strut their stuff for a prospective mare owner. I am officially ga-ga over Shackleford... if I had a mare and $20,000, he would be my choice. We took a slight detour to visit Weisenberger Mill to satisfy my other passion, flours and cornmeal for baking. We also visited a broodmare farm to see the foals in action (or not, seeing as they all seemed to be napping near mama), then a finale to Equus Run Vineyard for a wine tasting, and purchasing. The tour was personal, full of interesting tidbits, and worth much more than we paid. I highly recommend touring with Martha Martin and Nancy Hapgood of UnBridled Horse Tours.

I had Nancy "Hap" customize a tour for me and one of my friends from California (first time in Bluegrass Country for her and it was amazing. She recommended restaurants and shops to see before we met her and the rest of the day was pure heaven, from watching the horse auction at Keeneland to a horse rehab center, to a horse farm and we topped it off with a wine tasting. Just doesn't get any better. Cannot wait to use her again . She is the best by far.

We took a tour with Martha Martin through Lexington farm country. She was so knowledgeable and gave us all kinds of insider information as an owner of her own family's horse farm and a lifelong resident. She catered the tour to what we wanted to see and got us access to places like the farm where Secretariat is filmed that is not available to other guides or the public. She answered all of our questions, and we had a ton because we knew little about the horse world. The advantage of going on a tour with a local who had such apparent passion for horses and the area can't be underestimated. I highly recommend her tour. I am sure hoping I meet her again! She really was like traveling with a friend by the end of the day. Everyone we know was amazed at the pictures we posted and one of our friends is already planning to contact her for a tour later this spring. What are you waiting for? Contact her now!

Nancy "Hap" Hapgood is such a doll. She was the most wonderful and kind person. She picked us up at our bed and breakfast, and off we went exploring horse farms and sites that WE were interested in seeing. She offered suggestions and was so much fun. She stayed in touch with us through e-mails and made sure to make the experience tailored to our needs. I would 1000% recommend Unbridled Horse Tours!

While several horse farms allow the general public to visit by just calling in advance and making an appointment many do not. I was interested in two of those; Darby Dan and Crestwood and thanks to Unbridled Horse Farm Tours and my tour guide, Ann Hayes, I was able to visit with some of my favorite Thoroughbreds who are now retired to stand stud. The bonus, for me, was learning so much from Ann and the staff of these farms about the real operations of a farm. While touring the beautiful Lexington area Ann shared so much information about additional farms, the breeding and racing industry and sites along the way. It was a very memorable experience and I plan to take the tour again on my next visit to Lexington.
