Perfect Time to Visit Kentucky

Anytime is a good time to visit Kentucky and tour the horse farms but this time of the year is the best.
The weather is great and now the young fouls are out in the fields with their moms and it is enchanting to watch them run about.

Many of the farms have guided tours.  You decide which farms you wish to see and arrange for a reservation before you arrive in town. Also their are many special companies that will arrange for you to visit the farms you pick and even drive you in vans. One group of my guests recently toured using Unbridled Horse Tours and they were extremely pleased with the guide and highly recommended them. You can check out more information on their website at or email them at   Phone: 859-333-8940

The horse farms a amazing! The barns are so luxurious with rubber floors and polished wood stalls. Some even have swimming pools for horses and blankets that massage the horse. The central Kentucky countryside is beautiful with rolling meadows, lined with incredible fencing and landscaped around the perimeter. Many scenic drives lead you to these farms or Bourbon Distilleries.
So you could combine your visit to a few horse farms, take a break to eat and tour a distillery and leisurely wind your way around the gorgeous countryside.

One place to stop and have a bite to eat is Wallace Station. It is located along Old Frankfort Pike which is one of those scenic byways. It's in the heart of the Kentucky Bluegrass horse country and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It originally was a grocery store and post office, but now is a great little wayside restaurant serving up delicious food in a quaint setting. Take a look at more information and the menu at or call them at 859-846-5161.
Good news: they are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
