Walk in the hoofprints of Secretariat at The Meadow where the legendary Triple Crown winner was born and raised. See his original foaling shed, yearling and training barns and other points of interest on this historic site which dates back to 1805.  Visit our latest attraction - the Museum of the Virginia Horse and the Meadow Champions Galleries in Meadow Hall mansion. 

Tours are conducted by Leeanne Meadows Ladin, Secretariat tourism manager and co-author of the award-winning "Secretariat's Meadow – The Land, The Family, The Legend."  She will share exclusive behind-the-scenes stories about the farm, the family and the famous mares and stallions of Meadow Stable. After the tour, she will sign books in the Meadow gift shop.

The narrated tours are available by tram for groups of 15 or more and as walking tours for smaller groups or individuals.  Reservations and payment must be made in advance.  Tours are generally held Wednesday - Saturday at 10 am and 2 pm;  Sundays at 2 pm.   Availability depends on the event schedule of Meadow Event Park.   

These tours are a great activity for corporate or civic outings, retirement  communities, family trips and anyone who loves horses and history!
