“AWESOME AND INFORMATIVE TOUR-WORTH THE TIME AND MONEY”

Larson's Famous Clydesdales
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Ripon
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2012

We had a nice weather and nice trip from the Sparta, WI area. Moreover, from its very start of the tour, we realized that the price of admission had value and substance. Indeed, we found Mr. and Mrs. Larson to be open and friendly personalities who really worked hard to inform and transmit, clearly and concisely, their passion and knowledge of a very special and near-rare breed of horse. In closing, the entire tour was a compelling experience not long forgotten. This well-organized experience should appeal to everyone likes fresh country air, informative and experienced guides and a visit to an extraordinary setting where giant horses give one the sense the historic past of farm work life. In sum, this adventure respresents a kind of chronicle of the past which can enrich our understanding of the powerful forces and animals who worked and contributed to our current quality of life and living in America. Our hats are off to the Larson's for their nerve and pluck. Keep up the good things that you do.Because you do it so well. We'll be back.

These beautiful horses are worth seeing one time, and the chance to pet a baby Clydesdale was great too, but this will probably not rank high on most people's all-time favorites list. But if you're in the area and you like horses, check it out.

Get up close to these magnificent animals and hearing the stories from the owners. A great field trip for a school or family as well. It doesn't hurt to love horses too.

As a side trip while on vacation to Puckaway Lake WI. our small group (Mother age 92, two sisters,1 daughter and 1 husband) made the country drive to a very special place-Larson's Famous Clydesdales. The place was worth the drive even though we missed the correct turn our fault for talking. When we got there the tour started right with our greeting from owner Judy Larson. It is always a pleasure to see people working with animals with full passion. Both she and her husband were great at what they do- the beautiful horses were the proof. The Farm is small but packed with fine detail. We met horses at every turn and even had the opportunity to pet and photograph a baby Clydesdale! The Larson's are a treat for all ages and we all learned quite a bit about this special breed of horse.

The owners met us at the driveway and we had a few minutes to meet and pet four of their team of horses. The show started there, went on to see the trailers, equipment and tack. The show in the grandstand was awesome and informative. Bud (the horse) loved being the star of the show. We were fortunate enough to get a chance to meet a three week old Clydesdale and were never rushed in our exploration of their premises, or our interactions with the horses. We used the AAA directions to get there and found them most helpful. We were fourtunate to be a very small group, less than a dozen people. This ws a major treat and one couple in our group can't wait to take their grown daughter (and horse enthusiast) to experience the same joy. We loved it.
