I enjoyed my time at the horse park. I am not a horse lover, so that is probably why I didn't rate it a 5 star. The ride around the park was a bit lame. I did enjoy seeing Man O War's grave site. Otherwise,...More

We loved the place even in the cold and mist and seeing so many breeds of horses and seeing them perform their tasks was worth the trip.

February isn’t the greatest time to visit. Not a lot going on. Museums are very interesting (although updates are currently in progress.). We will definitely return in the spring or summer with our children because it looks like a lot of fun for the kids!!!More
