“Great Trail Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Our family took the 2 hour trail ride over the Greenway Landbridge on I-75 for our son's 11th birthday. It was very enjoyable! Lots of shade throughout the ride which was great on a day over 90°. Very friendly staff. All the horses were all well behaved and got along with each other. Along the ride we saw some wildlife including a few coyotes in the distance and a box tortoise. We will definitely return!!

“Great Riding, Horses and People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I have gone to Rock Springs twice and had a great time. The staff is awesome, their focus on keeping everyone happy and safe. The horses are well mannered. Great family fun no matter what your level of experience is. I am definitely going back.

“Great Fun, Very fair prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Experienced rider or not this is a fun time. Wranglers were good horse people, very friendly and helpful. They worked hard to get riders on a horse to fit their riding ability. Would do it again.

“a safe, fun experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The guides hand-pick each horse for the rider, and the horses are very gentle and easily reigned. The trip can go through part of the forest (the Florida Horse Park) or through some open areas.The guides are knowledgeable and fun. It was affordable, especially with a Groupon coupon. If you go in the summer, be sure to reserve the morning ride and take water bottles to hang from your saddle. Don't wear sandals or flipflops ever to ride horses, and consider bug spray. Take some extra money to tip the guides if they have given you a good time and good information. Use the bathroom prior to riding--it is down the road a few hundred yards. Otherwise, you only have a port-a-potty at the stables. This is the second time I've ridden at Cactus Jack's and I will definitely return.

“Excellent Escape From The City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Cactus Jack's trail rides is the perfect way to spend a day. The two of us that went had a great time with our guide, Tammy. She was very talkative and was a blast. The Rock Springs location is beautiful. We saw a coyote, bear, deer, and many birds. I will definitely go back if I have another chance!
