We offer trail rides on our gentle, safe horses! See Florida's oak hammocks, pine forests, and green fields. Riding is the best way to see the beauty of the Ocala area.

The horses were matched perfectly to us. Our guide only talked if we asked questions. We talked amongst ourselves but wished she would have... More

I took my daughters here (ages 12 and 9) for a trail ride. I felt very safe with all of us on the horses. The horses were very friendly. It was fun seeing their personalities with each other. You could tell that they were very well cared for and loved our guide. Tim was our guide and he was great... More

I enjoy riding horses and I wanted to take my 12 y/o son on a trail ride. He has only ridden once and that was when he was 5 and we rode on the same horse. I found Cactus Jack’s website and after reading some reviews, decided to book a 90 min trail ride in Ocala. Our guide was Steve,... More

If you are looking to take in the scenes at an anemic pace than this trail ride is for you. As soon as I tried... More

Myself, 66 and two 14 year olds lead by Harrison was once again a great time. Weather cooperated, Harrison was the perfect guide (management please note this compliment), and horses were well cared for with shining coats. Thanks for great memories once again.

My wife and i have taken another ride with Cactus Jacks and i expect we will be back. This is our second two hour ride. We asked the guide to take us somewhere different this time and he did. I hope to go back Next month and do it again.

My sister and I went for a trail ride at Cactus Jack's on May, 9 2016. The weather was perfect for a trail ride. The trail guide, Tim, let us meet the string of horses and told a bit about them. We picked our horses and after an intro on horse riding basics, we mounted up and headed out. We... More
