Graceland Stable Tours Starting Memorial Day Weekend

May 10, 2011

Back by popular demand! This summer, we will again offer stable tours for guests at Elvis Presley's Graceland. The tours will begin on the Memorial Day weekend of May 27 -30, 2011.

Artifacts on display as part of the Elvis Presley stable tour include saddles used by Elvis and his entourage, personal western wear worn by Elvis, checks and documents related to the purchase of some of Elvis’ horses, and home movie footage of Elvis on horseback at Graceland.

Built on the Southeast corner of Graceland by its original owners in 1939, the Graceland stable currently houses four horses. After Elvis bought the 13-acre estate in 1957, he often rode his horses around the property and even up to the front gate to sign autographs for fans.

Of the four horses currently living at Graceland, Max, Tucker and Bandit were adopted after being rescued. The fourth, Candy, was a gift.

The Graceland stables will be open weekends, extended holiday weekends, and during Elvis Week. Daily tour times are at 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. A schedule is posted below:
