Karen took us to several horse farms as well as driving past others. You don't have to be a horse person to enjoy the time. You can feed a million dollar horse carrots and see farms owned by some of America's more prominent business people....More

Karen is very knowledgeable in all things horse and all "equestria" Ocala. She's pleasant, attentive and thorough. Our 3 hour tour turned into 4, including interaction with jockeys, trainers and farm owners. We plan to take friends and family with Karen again.

Thank you for the wonderful review of that wet day! Yes, I so concerned that the rain was going to make for a Not So Fun Tour. Walking around a farm in the rain is not fun. And umbrellas freak the horses out.

So, you book a tour and hope the guide is good, the sites are worth seeing, and the transport is comfortable. Farm Tours of Ocala is all of that. I took this tour with two best friends, one of whom owned horses and competed as...More

Diane did an excellent job - very knowledgeable about multiple areas of the horse business. The scenic drive is worth the cost, let alone the 3 stops, 2 at beautiful horse farms.
