Extended Shuttle Tour

This tour is available seasonally from April – October on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays

This two-hour tour allows guests to first see the stallions of our all-star roster and walk through our state-of- the-art stallion barn to get a glimpse of the day-to-day life of each of our stallions. Guests then receive a tour of our breeding shed. Afterwards, guests will climb aboard our brand-new electric shuttle and see all the beauty the rest of the farm has to offer. Driving tour includes foaling barn and broodmare barns as well as some of the historic sites on the farm.

Guests participating on the Shuttle Tour will be expected to remain in the Shuttle for the duration of the experience, with all hands and feet kept inside. However, there will still be ample opportunities to capture the beauty of the farm - be sure to bring your camera to take as many photos as you’d like! The Shuttle Tour experience will vary seasonally, offering a unique look at a working horse farm at every time of year! Foals are out earlier in the year and through the summer, and yearling prep begins late summer.

We do our best to let fans meet our stallions; however, there are no guarantees that can be made for any stallion on any particular tour. Showings depend on the health and daily activities of our stallions.
