Board our air-conditioned bus and we will set off on our 2.5 – 3 hour horse farm adventure, while taking in the sights this region has to offer.  This tour features approximately area 3 attractions such as Katierich Farms, Hill ‘n Dale, and a lot more private farms or visit a horse hospital.

At these amazing locations we will be involved with activities such as feeding horses peppermints and seeing the babies such as the nicest American Pharoah foals. Many of the farms we visit have been operated by families for generations and are typically closed to the public.

A great experience

This tour took us to several amazing horse farms and we were taken through the stables, some with chandeliers. We also were right up close to mares and their foals in fenced areas. Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting, and humorous.

We just didn’t want to get up that early and we wanted to make sure if there was any fog, it would be all burned off by then.
