Martha Martin is a native Kentuckian who has been involved in the equine industry all her life as a Thoroughbred owner and breeder. Martha grew up on an historic farm herself, Audubon, in Midway, Kentucky. Martha will give you an "insider's view" as you visit famous farms and meet the people and horses behind the scenes. She is passionate about the thoroughbred industry, and you can often find her watching the races at Keeneland Racetrack.
Martha has been customizing tours for over 18 years, which means that her clients get expertise and access that is rarely provided through other tour companies. Whether you're planning for a large group of visitors with no previous knowledge of thoroughbred racing or life-long horse enthusiasts, Martha can plan an excellent itinerary for your needs.
Her approach is straightforward: give her a call or send an email and she'll assess what you'd like to see, the amount of time you have available, and she'll get started.
Unbridled Horse Tours grew out of two friends' enthusiasm for putting two things they love together - horses and people. Martha Martin and Nancy "Hap" Hapgood founded the tour company in 2000. Hap retired in 2018, with Martha continuing on their tradition of customized horse farm tours.
Unbridled Horse Tours will customize a tour experience for you and your guests at the most notable horse farms in the world. Come see why Lexington, Kentucky IS the "Horse Capital of the World" and have fun all along the way!
While Martha's focus is on Kentucky's largest signature industry - horses – if your interests include historic homes, distilleries, barns, architecture, shopping or more, we can plan that too! Martha is a life-long resident of the Bluegrass region and will happily show you what makes this area of the world so special.
