Virtual Horse Tours This Week

Virtual horse tours

As we start another week of physical distancing, Visit Horse Country is working with their members to bring the public several virtual tours.

Horse Country, Inc. is an organization of horse farms, equine medical clinics and equine attractions dedicated to sharing the stories of Kentucky’s Horse Country. Usually, they organize real tours by sharing stories of the horses, the land, and the people with our guests; ultimately to develop fans of farms and clinics through tourism experiences.

In this period of time when we can’t host tours in person, some of our members are offering virtual experiences periodically. We’d love to have you check those out – see a list here or see what is upcoming in the list below. Please know the Virtual Tours page & the members’ social accounts will be the most current place to find information on the streamed experiences.
