Horseback riding is FUN! Relax and enjoy beautiful guided trail rides from the FLORIDA HORSE PARK and on the Ocala GREENWAY Trail System. Horseback riding is FUN, SAFE and AFFORDABLE. We offer trail rides on our gentle, safe horses! See Florida's oak hammocks, pine forests, and green fields. Riding is the best way to see the beauty of the Ocala area. This is truly Florida at its best. The park is over 90,000 acres!!! We have outstanding horses and our guides have years of experience. We take riders 6 years old and up. We also do custom rides for the more experienced riders. Let us know what type of riding you enjoy, and we will do our best to accomodate..........Call for reservations!

My 9 year old granddaughter and I went to Cactus Jacks Trail Rides in Ocala, Florida today and had a fun time. Our guide was Shelby and she was excellent. We certainly will go riding there again.

Had a great ride on Saturday in the backcountry of Landbrige Park. "Chaco" was an amazing horse, and Rob was a great guide. Will definitely do it again!

This is areal,y special place to ride, relatively close to Orlando. Trails wind through woodlands and are nice and shady. My guide Lynn was a nice, knowledge young woman, and good company. My horse was responsive without being more than I could handle.

Just call and they'll give you their rates. My private 90 minute ride (my first) was $60 plus $20 for "private" - if you go with a group it is $60 for 90 min. And if you buy a package of 10 rides, they are half price. And... More
