About Our Tours
Horse Farm Tours gives its guests a close-up look at the world's premier Thoroughbred horse farms. You can expect to spend approximately three hours with your tour guide visiting horse farms, Historic Keeneland Race Course and other attractions in the area. Every tour includes a drive by Calumet, two farms including a walk through one of the region's modern barns, plus a tour of Keeneland Race Course. Tours depart from several area hotels.
We offer a complete and comfortable tour with knowledgeable guides. We strive to make your visit to the Horse Capital of the World a part of the great Thoroughbred tradition. Our goal is to take you inside the plank fences and down the shady lanes of Central Kentucky. You will see horses after their racing careers are over, in-foal broodmares, weanlings, yearlings and depending upon the time of year, newborn foals. Our tour is unique in that we offer a glimpse into the daily procedures of working farms. You will have an opportunity to walk through the modern barns. You don't even have to clean a stall!
What to Expect
This 3-hour tour generally includes a drive by world famous Calumet Farm with history of what made this farm so famous back in the 1940s and 1950s and up until the present day.
You will visit the famous Keeneland Race Course and take a walking tour of the lovely ivy covered old buildings. The morning tours get to see morning workouts. Keeneland was the home of the Breeder Cup Champion Races in 2015. Then you will visit a couple of farms where you can get up and personal with the horses.
In the Spring you will get to see broodmares and their new foals and see these new foals try to stand on those long legs! During the tour you will see sights where several motion pictures have been filmed.
