My equine enthusiasts and I have traveled to several equine bnb(s) across Florida. We keep coming back to Our Fathers Haven as the best experience. The accomodations are so clean and welcoming. Our horses love the big pastures to graze and play. The "Inn Keepers" Gary, Joanne (and Melissa too) do a wonderful job of making you feel at home and relaxed. They provide a beautiful breakfast (even accomodate for vegetarians;) that will keep you subsided for a 5 hour trail ride should you want to go that long :) Great experience. Best so far for me in Florida...Also, I must note, I have never seen such a clean watering trough out on the public trail...my horse (finicky/picky) would even drink out of it. Gary's daughter told me that he goes out and maintains it....extremely thoughtful folks running this establishment...like no other place I have been.
