We had Sean as our tour guide & what an experience! He is full of information about the industry, local farms, as well as, the Lexington area in general. Could listen to him tell stories for hours!

Sean Washington - one of a kind. We had only one day left in Lexington, and it was Sean's day off. Nothing seemed to fit both our schedules, my wife was very disappointed as Unique Horse Tours had come so highly recommended by the National Horse Center. A few minutes later, Sean called back and said he would meet us at local hotel - it was the beginning of an amazing day. Sean is unique - knowledge (check); access (check), great stories (check), knows the horses by name (check), knows the owners, grooms, and stable hands by name (check), van - clean, well maintained, and comfortable (check). My wife is the horse person, I am not. However, seeing the industry through Sean's eyes gave me a new appreciation for the heart and soul of the Kentucky racing industry and the horses. Do not miss a chance to be with Sean.

What an amazing experience!!!! Sean was a great tour guide who showed us great scenery, wonderful horses and most of all incredible stories. Sean showed us not only public properties, but he treated us private farms that were amazing to experience. I will highly recommend this trip to family and friends for sure.

Shaun Washington's personal knowledge of the area and the farms especially that he drove by and showed us and took us on the farm Margo especially so beautiful and that wonderful log cabin inside the big new barn. It was a treat my daughter and I will not forget for a long time thank you Shaun.

I have taken Unique Horse Farm Tours at least five times over the years, so when I visited Lexington in October I signed up to take it again. As always, I really enjoyed the tours. Shaun's extensive knowledge, interesting stories and ability to be both informative and humorous guarantees everyone a good time for everyone! One of the places we visited did water therapy for horses - that was a first for me. We also went to 2 private farms and got an up close to mares and their babies. I have recommended the Unique Horse Farm Tours to friends and recommend it to anyone visiting beautiful Lexington - it should not be missed!

All that I wanted was to go and pet some horses. Thanks to Sean not only did we get up-close to the beautiful animals but we also learned a lot about thoroughbreds and the million dollar business that revolves around them. His 20 years experience and amazing personality is what helps him deliver on this amazing tour. Have already recommended the tour to some work colleagues and will be back next fall with friends.

Shawn was very informative about thoroughbred racing horses. I’m not a race horse expert/fan but still found the tour interesting and informative with beautiful horse farm countryside locations and experiences.

Sean arrived at time stated. Sean was very personable, sharing loving and entertaining stories of his family, employers and personal experiences. The ride to/from each of the locations were filled with beauty of all kinds, the flora/fauna, animals, people and my personal interaction with the horses and barn kitties were wonderful! I would think, during the racing season, there'd be an abundance of stories to be had, as this was an adventure in September!!

Sean’s knowledge, local horse stories and sense of humor was wonderful. The tour took us to 3 farms with hands on with the horses. The highlight of the tour for me was the training swimming pool. Learned so much. We will take the tour again.
