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!

I decided at the last minute to email Cactus Jack at 7:30 in the morning asking for a reservation the next day. They responded immediately and told me they were full for the next day, but that I would ride that day at 9:00 am. I got my granddaughter dressed and rushed out of the house. I went to the... More

The people are friendly and helpful at Cactus Jacks. This ride on the Ocala Greenway was a peaceful event. The horses are well trained and pretty much know the trails so you are going along for the horse's stroll. Would recommend it for anyone who wants a quiet ride and is a first time rider.

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
