During this time we will not be able to issue refunds. We will however be issuing credit for future reservations or a refund when our business is back to normal. Thank you for your understanding. Our guides will continue to look after the health and welfare needs of the horses in our barns.

The State of Florida designated horseback riding provider for The Cross Florida Green Way “70,000 + Acres” at the Landbridge Trail Head Ocala, Florida and Rock Springs Run State Reserve “14,000 Acres” Sorrento, Florida.
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 48 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.
Cross Florida Greenway
A Central Park feel with lots of beautiful tree hammocks.
Rock Springs Run State Reserve
Riding the tree lines with open ranges with LOTS of wildlife.
Most our horses are rescues, some was bought from auction, some was donated to us. We love all horses and do whatever we can for the happiness, good health and safety of them. If you know of a horse that needs our help please contact us immediately by email.
All our proceeds go back into maintaining the health and operations of Florida Horse Riding. Our Feed, Farrier and Vet bill far exceeds our riding proceeds. All donations are greatly appreciated.
