LOVED THIS GREAT EXPERIENCE

Our tour guide was Eric and he did a great job. This is the best horseback ride we've been on and the nature is wonderful. Will definitely come back.

We love Cactus Jack's! It was such a fun experience. They were so sweet to my 7 year old daughter, she always asks if we can go riding with Cactus Jack's. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing ride. By far one of the best riding experiences we have ever had!!!

Gentle horses that go on the Florida Greenway. Guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We took the 90 minute tour which was plenty for us.

I had an excellent time, I rode Hook on a 3 hour trail ride with my guide - he (the horse) was a pleasure to ride and I would liked to have taken him home. With thousands of acres to explore we were able to spend the majority in shade which in June was a bonus. For any horse riders... More

My husband and I have trail rode all over the country an Cactus Jack's has been one of our best experiences. The guides are friendly and helpful and the horses are in the best condition I have seen. Very relaxing ride through beautiful giant oak trees. Best time ever. We will definitely be back.

This place is awful!!! Two of my kids ended crying with the experience. We rented 6 horses and 3 of them were so old than one of them wasn't able to keep walking after 30 minutes. The guide was a very rude young guy, that didn't have any idea about his job. From the minute that I arrived to this... More

I have been to Cactus Jack's three times, twice in Ocala and once in Sanford. The riding in both locations is great and the horses are well taken care of and are comfortable with any rider. Since I have experience in trail riding, I requested to be paired with a horse and guide so that I could do some trotting.... More

The ride was very pretty- we were in the rock springs park location. Our guide Travis was a delight and helpful. The horses were a little feisty but mostly due to the bugs and flies pestering them while riding in the woods. Better bug repellant on the horses would have made for a better ride. Overall we had a great... More

We just got finished an hour trail ride here at Catus Jack's and it was fantastic! It was my sister and I (both in our 30s) and our parents (both on their 60s) and all of our needs were met. Shelby (our guide) was very knowledgeable and very nice, she made sure we were all comfortable in our saddles before... More
