After 30 years of not riding and at 62 years of age I have had a hard time finding a qualified training facility that just wanted to help me with the basics on my level. I stumbled upon Arnets when staying at a condo in Destin, Florida. Everyone from my trailer Julie, to Bonnie's happy greeting at the office and... More

Our trail guide was informative and friendly and gave me the confidence to feel safe on my horse. This was only the second time in my life I'd ridden a horse, but I had no reason to be nervous, and even allowed the horse to trot a little throughout the trail ride. This experience made me want to go out... More

The horse ranch is a great place to visit. The owners are very experienced and take very good care of all the horses. The traiks take you through the forrest and the scenery is great. Well worth a visit if you love horse riding.

We took our 3 children (ages 6, 10, and 13) on the hour long trail ride, and had a blast! The ride takes you through the State Park, full of nature! The two tour guides were very informative throughout the whole ride, and the horses were well matched for each of us. They also offer a party area (complete with... More

After a few days at the beach, it was nice to do something a little different. It was my daughter's first time to ever ride a horse (age 8). The horses were gentle, the trail was easy enough, and the trail guide was great for a first timer. There was a lot of walking through more confined, marshy wet areas... More

This was one of the best rides I've done in the area. The scenery was beautiful and the instructor was very friendly and knowledgeable, she taught us a lot about the history of the trees and plants in the area which was a nice added bonus. This wasn't one of those boring trail rides that just goes along a road... More

By appointment only and easy to find. The ride lasted for about a hour down a trail in one of National Forest areas. The horses were easy to ride and were great for a beginner family.

We had a 1 hour trail ride and just loved it! The horses were just fantastic, my saddle was so comfortable, our guides were great. What a great time.

The weather was perfect and what a better way to spend the day other than riding thru the forest on a beautiful horse with my husband! The staff was very nice and it was a great facility! The horses seemed to be very well cared for! Since the land was originally swamp land, we rode thru several places covered in... More
