“don't go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2010

I was thinking of making the trip with my sister from Minnesota, but after she went there last week, I won't waste my time and money. For $15 per person, and the description of the farm, she was hoping for a lot more. The 90 minute tour lasted 45 minutes. A bus had trouble coming, so there was NO grandstand show whatsoever. There were bugs everywhere, albeit not bothering the horses. When Judy opened the museum, (garage size building with a door) it was only an old wagon, which they could only see the front of it to boot! The "gift shop" had shirts, stuffed horses and postcards. (The regular size postcards were $1 a piece!) Not much. On top of all that, the publicly beloved Budweiser horses, the treatment they get and their history were all put down. They could have refunded at least part of the money for no show, or given a raincheck just to be tourist friendly. Best advice: Don't go!!

“Amazing animals and very informative but a bit pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2009

My husband and I recently visited Larson's Famous Clydesdales and were amazed by these beautiful animals. The tour was very informative as they talked about the horses as well as the equipment, trucks, trailers, wagons, etc. that they use. It was obvious that the tour guide was very proud of her horses as they have won many ,many, many competitions, however at times she came across a bit boastful. Overall, it was a good experience and I think it would be a fun outing for a family as I'm sure the kids would love it. The cost was $15 per person.
