Come enjoy a relaxing view of the Withlacoochee State Forest on horseback. Each 2 hour long trail ride is with the group (up to 5 riders) you come with. Reservations must be made at least 1 day prior to the ride so that we will get you matched with the horse that best meets your ability. We take riders from school age to seniors. We meet at the stable, have you fill out a standard Equine Liability release and pay for your ride. Then the horses are trailered to the forest, 5 min away. Riders are mounted on the assigned horse, basic safety is covered, and down the trail we go. After a scenic journey through the woods, pines, and meandering paths we get back to the trailer for photos if you would like. Depending on the mood of the wildlife, we have seen deer, eagles, and many types of songbirds, coyotes, owls and even a bobcat!
All rides must pay for 1 rider NON-Refundable to hold the ride time for your group.

Lessons We offer riding lessons for private or groups. One hour lessons are $60.00 per horse for 1- 2 riders/ or $20.00 per horse for 3-5 riders. We offer beginner to intermediate English instruction or all levels of Western instruction. We can also do speed event training for all levels of riders. Participants are responsible for preparing and putting away the horse they are assigned. This can be part of the hour lesson, or the riders can arrive early and prep on their own time. For a fee of $10.00 per horse extra, the horse will be prepared and put away for you. Advanced English lessons can be scheduled with proper notice so the instructor can allow time to be available. Please note that there will be an additional small fee per lesson.
