Very attentive and patient staff. Horses are gentle and well behaved. A great Sunday afternoon adventure with our grandson.

My boyfriend absolutely LOVES horses. I, on the other hand am afraid of them. I freaked out each time my horse jerked his head up to get the flies out of his face. In spite of this, the staff were extremely kind and patient with me. I was actually able to calm down and enjoy myself. We came a little... More

Great place if your going for just a trail ride but horrible English trainer that speaks to kids as if they are adults. Would be a better place if more kid/teen friendly and certain trainers weren't there. Would not recommend having your kids take lessons from the English trainer. She is very rude and lowers kids self esteem. Has no... More

We went on the 1 hour trail ride. The employees were friendly. About half of the trail is flooded so it is kind of like going through a creek, but that makes it more fun than your typical trail ride. The rest of the trail is sandy and somewhat dusty, but again it adds variety. The horses are in fantastic... More

My mom, sister and I rode on the one hour trail ride at Arnett's Gulfside Trail Rides and had a great time! We received a short lesson and the guided ride was about an hour long. Our guide, Mike, was knowledgeable and friendly and made me feel at ease as this was my first time riding a horse. This is... More

We forgot our guide name but he was a awesome guide and instructor. We went on the 1 hr trail ride and had a great time. I wore tennis shoes but might recommend wearing the mud boots because you do go through some water. Would go back if we come back down this way.

I have taken my 6 and 7 year old nieces here twice for one hour trail rides. Each time is awesome, they LOVE it. The horses are well mannered, stables are nice and clean and the employees are the best around ~ friendly and very knowledgeable! The state park where you ride through is beautiful! One of my nieces also... More
