We had a great time on the hour long trail ride. Horses were beautiful and well mannered. The tack was super as well. Guides were friendly and kind. The trail was beautiful with many different types of Florida foliage. I highly recommend this farm!

It was a great horseback ride! Of course, horses will be horses. But, they're well trained and well behaved. Our guides Sondra and Jackie were wonderful guides throughout the trail. Definitely recommend it.

Great trail ride! Nice friendly staff! Daughter enjoyed being able to get out and ride horses while we were in Destin! Would definitely do it again! The donkey is about as nice as can be! He just wanders around place.
