Denali Stud currently offers seasonal tours in partnership with Horse Country. We are proud to accept fans for scheduled tours through https://visithorsecountry.com/
Come and join us for a behind the scenes look at one of Central Kentucky’s leading thoroughbred nurseries. Guests will begin their visit with a stop at the Denali cabin. A brief history of the farm will be given, and the tour will move to the foaling barn area to visit mares and their foals (in the spring and early summer) Visitors will learn about the care and management of broodmares and their babies and have the opportunity to pose for pictures and feed the mares peppermints. This part of the tour can be done by walking or driving (weather permitting) and depending on the wishes of the guests. After ample time with the horses, you will learn about the sales and memorabilia from our many special horses, whether they were stars on the track or in the auction ring.
The tours are hour long walking tours through our barns to see the operations of a working farm. You will see day to day chores and horse care being performed. Some guests are lucky and get to watch vet work or a foal be born! It is all luck of the draw on tour day, and we hope you can walk away with a great experience to tell your friends!

COVID-19 Statement 2020:
Due to the happenings this year regarding COVID-19, in person tours will resume starting June 18th. We have limited group sizes to 6 to allow for as much social distancing as possible. Guests are asked to please wear masks at their discretion and will be required to sign a waiver provided by Horse Country regarding COVID-19 before starting the tour. Hand sanitizer will be provided before and after all tours. We ask that you please not come to the farm if you or your family members feel sick, or if you know you have been in contact with someone who was sick in a 2 week time frame. Horse Country is glad to cut you a rain check or refund! If we have to transport in vehicles due to weather, or wishes of the guests, we ask that this is done in your personal vehicle at this time. We will not carpool on tours for the duration of the year in an effort to keep all guests and farm staff safe and healthy.
Denali joined in with various other thoroughbred farms, clinics, and services in the Bluegrass region for the past few months providing fans access to live virtual tours through our social media channels each week.
