A piece of history...and some neat horses

COL Battell started the farm, and UVM continues the tradition of running it by showcasing the history of the Morgan Horse with the great descendants of the original sire.

Very interesting tour especially if you love horses. The tour lasted around 30 minutes and was $5/person. Afterward we walked around the grounds--lovely in the fall.

This beautiful setting,the home of the original Morgan horse was a surprise discovery for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the short tour conducted by a passionate well informed guide and afterwards wandering around additional areas of the property alone. The farm is quite close to Middlebury and easy to find. Definite point of interest in the district

Wanted to love this place, but I found it not in top condition, and was genuinely upset by the dark, small stall areas where the horses to be sold for top $$ were kept. It was explained that the farm keeps them indoors (no pasture free time) so they do not get hurt or scarred, but they are downstairs in... More

You don't have to be a huge aficionado of horses to appreciate a visit to Morgan Horse Farm. It is a relatively inexpensive ($5/person) departure from the all-too-common touristy shops encountered in popular travel locations. Your time is spent first watching a short film appraising you of the history of Morgan throughbreds and then with a guide who educates you... More

There's always someone in the family that loves horses and this is an easy, well-maintained breeding farm, usually with several little foals to enjoy, as they run and play. Sometimes there is a container where you can put your choice of name for one of the young ones. The kids always like coming up with crazy, unusual names. We could... More

A must see in Middlebury, VT. See some wonderful Morgan horses and watch as handlers groom and train them. Almost 75% of all Morgan horses in the world come from this stock. Don't miss the short film of the history of this farm.

We used to take our own children to Morgan Horse Farm. Now, 25+ years later, we are taking our grandchildren. These animals are majestic up close and from a distance. For a couple dollars, a family of four gets personally guided tour detailing the history and current uses of these grand thoroughbreds. Be sure to enter the annual drawing for... More

Small farm to show the origination of the Morgan horse breed. Beautiful animals with an interesting tour. My GPS insisted on crossing a covered bridge to get here. My motorhome would not fit! Otherwise peaceful countryside.
