Very disappointed in our tour. One of the three stops was great. The other two weren’t. Second farm we couldn’t go into the barn and never saw a horse there. Nice barn but the horses were somewhere else. Third farm we just visited horses at a gate. All of these weren’t even throughbeds.

Interacting with the horses……….the gorgeous views……….. Sean was a wealth of knowledge………… We’ll be back for sure…………
A Horse Petting Zoo like Experience
, Jul 2022
Lots and lots of opportunities to pet horses of all ages-babies, yearlings, mommies. As if we went to horse petting zoos. A dream come true for me.
Owning a race horse is expensive!

The tour was interesting and the guides were great with great stories. Indeed we got up close with the horses. Seeing the Clydesdales was especially exciting. The nay disappointment was not seeing the yearlings swim.
Our tour guide gave so...

Our tour guide gave so much info about horse racing and how they raise horses. A trip my wife and I will never forget. If you are a horse lover or want to get close to these majestic creatures, this is a must.

Sean made this tour so personal, we learned so many facts and fun filled. Getting up close to the horses and the farms was amazing. We made this reservation last minute and we sure are happy we did! It did not disappoint one bit. Sean also hVe is a lunch recommendation to Carson’s and it was delicious a perfect day spent in Lexington.

Foal running at last the last farm. The tour left a lot to be desired. Barns were the same after the first. We were hoping to see some training or working with the horses.
Hands on with hirses

Loved seeing the fillies and learning about their blood lines. Our tour guide Shawn was full of knowledge and made our experience unique.
This one's a winner

Shaun was an excellent guide--his knowledge of the horseracing industry, history, current operations, and key personnel was simply incredible, and my how he made us laugh! Having the opportunity to tour some of the largest, most gorgeous (not to mention expensive) farms in the Lexington/Versailles area was so worth it. You really get up close to the animals & operations, and you will find out much more about horseracing than you ever expected! Great for couples, families, or if you're just passing through solo.

Great experience
, May 2022
The 1st and 2nd farms were spectacular. The 3rd, though note as nice gave us more opportunity to pet the horses. The second farm was the most beautiful we had ever seen. It had to be worth several billion.
Highly recommended

Shawn was a great guide and knows everyone! Seeing the beautiful views and interacting with the horses was a great way to spend our day in Lexington.

Great experience!! The horses, the horse farms and the barns were incredible. Beautiful scenery! Just wish we were able to see the horses swimming and feed them when up close.
Beautiful Horse Farms and Moreb
, May 2022
Truly a Unique experience seeing 3 horse farms and being up close and personable. Sean was our driver and guide for 3 full hours of fun, laughter and history. He made this damp raw day so wonderful and we really enjoyed being able to touch and see where the horses live in the barns. This was a top notch tour with seeing the finest barns and thorough breads horses. Sean had so much personal knowledge from this beautiful town since he has been here his whole life. Lovely man, would highly recommend Unique tours. It’s a father and son operation, you get your money’s worth.
