Guided Horseback Riding

The State of Florida designated horseback riding provider for The Cross Florida Green Way “70,000 + Acres” at the Landbridge Trail Head about 60 miles from Orlando in Ocala, Florida

As Portions of all proceeds goes back to the Florida Parks Cross Florida Greenway and to the upkeep of the Greenway Trails. Our horses are assigned to guests based on the riders weight, experience level, and handicaps if any. We have horses to suit every rider from beginner to experienced. Our horses are gentle, people friendly and enjoy their jobs.

We have 22 horses, that we rotate out on a regular basis to give them some time off. Horses, just like people, need time off from their jobs.  Also good saddles are just as important as good horses. Many times, a ride is ruined by an uncomfortable saddle. We use mostly Australian and Western saddles that provide comfort and support.
