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.

As an activity director at an RV park, I am always looking for ways to keep our guests entertained and happy. Cactus Jack's provided a great experience for all who participated. They began by matching the perfect horse for the varied expertise of riders in a professional and fun fashion. The less experienced riders felt a level of confidence that... More

I've been riding horses for over 40 years and riding at Cactus Jack's was amazing. The horses were so well trained and the trails were wide enough to ride side by side. No rocks, and beauty all around. Thank you for a great 9 mile ride. I'll be back for sure.

The staff w/ Cactus Jack's is very friendly and helpful. My mom & I had a great time out trail riding w/ them. Wish it had been a smaller group of people but all in all good experience & would go again for sure.
