Overview

We offer 2 hour Guided horseback trail rides in the beauty of central Florida,that cover parts of a 20,000 acre forest track. We take riders from school age to 99, from first timers to those who have owned. We limit the number of riders to 4,and keep the ride as personal as possible by not mixing groups,so please call for an appointment time for your ride. As a working ranch, we also offer lessons, lease, and a few horses for sale. Rides that are 3 or more hours have a scheduled stop at a local restaurant where you can buy your lunch and then continue for the rest of the ride. As an interactive activity,guest who wish, may help with the unsaddling and washing of their horse at the end of the ride. Come get away from the city for a day and see the real Florida. Rates start at $70.00, plus tax and wrangler tip, for the 2 hour ride per horse.

Sorry we had to reschedule the first ride. Irma did a number on our horse trails that we have been slowly finding again! Your daughter seemed to have a good time even with the delay in celebrating her birthday.

My family has never rode on horses before. We were all a bit nervous but Amy our instructor made us all feel very comfortable. My 6 and 9 year old were naturals. The place is absolutely beautiful and we would definitely do it again!!!
