Went out yesterday for a 2 hour ride with my 12 year old granddaughter and as a grandmother 64 (beginners) totally enjoyed our experience. The staff was top of the line, friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were clean and well mannered. The facilities were clean. At the end of our two hour ride, we signed up for two more hours... More

I took my granddaughter for a trail ride. This was the first time we went here and found the guide and instruction very good. My granddaughter has ridden before, but was a little tentative at first, but soon was out there riding and enjoying herself. The trail was excellent and was tree covered most of the way, making it cooler... More

Took the family to celebrate my birthday and couldn't have picked a better way to relax. Horses are calm and the staff was excellent. Even my 10 y.o. grandson loved it, Will definitely go back.

Both of our horses were well behaved,and so much fun to be on!! I rode Butch,who is very big and tall, he was such a gentleman! My friend rode Annie,who was a real sweetie!!... More

I came out from California to visit a friend, we both have our own horses, but since she only has one, we decided to both rent horses at Cactus Jack's and go for a ride on the Landbridge trail. We opted for the " private" ride, with just us and a guide, and we had a great time. Heather was... More

When we finally found them (the list we got in Ocala had the wrong address,) we met a couple of the staff who helped allay the fears of my 14 year old. The horse she was put on was not as well behaved as he should have been. Her butt was sore for 2 days after the two hour ride.... More

I did my first trail ride with them at 67 years old. I have been back several times with children and grandchildren. I have been very pleased with the effort to make everyone comfortable and consider their level of expertise. It was great fun and well worth the money.

Went on the 3 hour ride, and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Kyle was very nice. It was nice to see the horses there are well looked after. They get fed high quality hay and they all have lots of weight on. The horses are well behaved. Thanks for the wonderful afternoon.
