Where can a 4 year old see horses in Lexington?

Children under 6 are not recommended for the 3 hr tours of the horse farms. We have a very interested 7 year old, and 9 year old, but must accommodate the youngest girl also. Any suggestions for viewing horses etc during a Lexington trip in early June?

Thanks Aliaj

You could try Thoroughbred Heritage Horse Farm. I believe there a handful of reviews on this site.

I would call the horse farm tour company you are interested in and tell them the situation. I don't know if they will budge on age or not, but it would be worth a shot!

Have you looked at the Kentucky Horse Park? Your 4 year-old can definitely see horses there. Also, Unique Horse Farm Tours, which leaves from the park, doesn't recommend the tour for children under 4 so your daughter can go on this tour!

I second the recommendation about the Kentucky Horse Park. There are plenty of horses, and you can pet them after the Horses of the World show (formerly known as the Parade of Breeds show). There are also pony rides, and horses (including miniatures) are visible everywhere throughout the park. Little kids seem to be welcome at Old Friends, which is a thoroughbred retirement facility that is around 10 minutes away from Kentucky Horse Park:
