One hour tour was a little short, recommend the two hour. Narration was good but a little difficult to understand due to other noises.

Our guide, Larry was friendly, enthusiastic, most knowledgable and was so interesting that we entirely forgot how hot and humid it was. All staff members were courteous, friendly and professional. It as also comforting to know that the horses are handled humanely!
