The owner/guide/driver is a wealth of info. The farms are fascinating. The horses are amazing. I was not sure it would be worth the price but it is. I absolutely love horses.

Diane was so knowledgeable - it was like taking a college course on the horse country in... More

Wonderful day spent driving from farm to farm on a beautiful sunny day. It was so enjoyable being around the horses and looking at the nicely groomed farms. Would do it again!

My brother and his wife, who are horse people, came for a visit. Since Ocala is the horse capital of the world, we booked a tour of local horse farms. It was fantastic.
