A very informative tour that was a lot of fun, too! Got up close to the amazing horses and had multiple opportunities to interact with them! Thank you so much for the great job in sharing this amazing part of living in Ocala! I had previously gone on your tour and had out of state guests that wanted to learn about the Horse Capital of the World! They had a wonderful time and it was one of the highlights of their visit here! Thank you so much for a wonderful morning together!
Absolutely wonderful tour with owner Karen Grimes … she is not only a wealth of knowledge but also a delight to spend 2 1/2 hours with … great personality. Karen patiently answered all our questions … 8 in our group … so there were many. Also, there was a tiny glitch in my trying to signup online for the tour … Karen went out of her way to call me the day before to solve that glitch. Do not think twice about experiencing ‘Farm Tours of Ocala’ … just “do it”. Jeanne … Buffalo, NY
