The story, the history, the horses all exceptional. This is a very informative tour and the people and facility are top notch.


I think listening to the owner tell his life story was as good as getting to see those beautiful horses. The history of how he brought these horses to America is so interesting. All the staff are very helpful and the tour was great. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves horses.


Dennis, the owner, was a great person to meet. His story of how this horse breed came to America was magnificent. You’ll likely leave there dreaming of owning one of these beauties. ❤️


This working farm, run by the owner and founder of the famous Gypsy Vanner horses, is a spectacular view into Ocala’s famous horse world. The staff are very friendly and make your visit entertaining and educational. What an absolute treat to learn about this breed of horse and the fascinating history behind it!


Amazing experience with the man who discovered a new breed of horse, the Gypsy Vanner. Beautiful time exploring the farm, petting the horses, giant donkeys and parrots. If you want to see the real Ocala, I highly recommend this horse farm tour. The owner shares his super interesting life history with the group. He needs to write a book!


The history of horses is impressive. The owners of the farm are very friendly. We were a group of 6 . We all had a good time. The view was so beautiful and relaxing.


Loved the backstory of how these horses came to the US and how the owner is trying to bring a positive light to the gypsy culture! I could listen to him talk all day. Hoping he completes writing his book soon! Loved how we got to feed all the horses too. Very enjoyable experience. Recommend for all, especially those that don't know too much about horses (like me!).


What a wonderful experience! The farm is peaceful and beautiful, filled with lovely people, incredible creatures. ❤️


This was a beautiful horse farm and it was interesting to discover the lineage of this beautiful breed and how this particular owner came upon them.


Dennis and Erin had extreme passion for their life's work and it showed! The animals were beautiful, loved and well-cared for.
