UVM Morgan Horse Farm
Ranked #4 of 21 things to do in Middlebury
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 September 2013

The mixed reviews that I read made us reconsider whether we would make the trip to visit the Morgan stud, we were very close and ever the optimist we took the change and dropped in past. The signposts and sat nav weren't much use and we relied on a local to direct us to the farm. The grounds were lovely and well maintained, the main building with it's statue impressive. The staff lovely and the horses all well cared for, it's a working yard and represented as such. As a keen equestrian with access to many breeding studs and beautiful horses, I can say that the stud is not going to blow you away, its a functional, well kept and cared for establishment. Finding out about the history was interesting and communicated very well, the staff were all very engaging and took great pride in what they were involved in. Their passion for the continuing breed standards and ongoing breeding programme was evident. I would highly recommend visiting if this is the element that you are interested in or wanted to see how a working breeding stud is managed and have the opportunity to be up close to horses of all ages. Should you expect polished stables and immaculate grazing which are not a reality, you will be disappointed.

I was very pleased at the interest shown by the staff at this facility, and the horses were just beautiful, as I had expected. Certainly worth checking out if you are a horse lover!

It is very clearly a working farm. The personel are there to do a job and visitors watch them doing their job. It is a beautiful facility and the animals are superb. I am not sure it is a "tourist attraction".

Knowledgeable and friendly staff, both volunteer and paid. Hands-on visit with the horses. In a short time, I learned about the history and current status of these beautiful horses. Take time to walk the barns and fields. Ask questions. Great visit for children, too. Because it was quiet when we visited early in the day, we were able to have extended Q and A with several of the interns and staff. Sure hope to visit again when I'm in the area.
