Guest Animals: Pets are welcome and stay free. We love our four-legged guests. There are no size or breed restrictions. However, aggressive pets are not permitted. Animals acting in an aggressive way will be asked to leave without a reservation refund. Guests are responsible for any damages caused by their pet. Please keep in mind that other animals are present on the property, and this may cause your pet to become uncomfortable. As a safety to all pets visiting our farm, dogs are not permitted to run around the horses.

Our Animals: Guests are invited to interact with Nicura Ranch animals. Interactions should take place in a safe manner. Use caution while interacting with horses. Under Kentucky law, guests assume all liability while engaging in farm activities with the animals on our property (horses, goats and chickens). Horses and goats may approach guests in the field/pastures. Guests should be alert and respectful, and always avoid having children or dogs run around the animals. Our animals are very friendly, but can spook. Proper footwear (closed toe) must be worn in the fields/pastures.

Barn: Guests are never permitted to open or close a stall door. Guests should not enter horse stalls unless guided by a Nicura Ranch staff member. Please refrain from feeding the animals. For the safety of our animals, the barn area is under surveillance.

Horseback Riding: We do not permit horseback riding. A nearby farm offers trail rides. More information can be found on our Things to Do page.
