Fun Riding Experience

The guides were skilled and friendly. The trails were shaded and lush. The hour long trek was perfect and the horses were exceedingly healthy, well-tempered and obedient.

I had a wonderful time. Our guide was Rob. He was awesome and answered all our questions. It was a slow paced ride but that gave our guide plenty of time to tell us about the horses and the area. The horses were in excellent condition and well mannered. I will definitely bring my family next time. Thank you.

The staff was very nice and took care of us right away when we showed up. The trail was very dusty, not much to see other than traditional Florida landscape but relaxing. Horses were good, we rode single file as usual and I could not hear from the back what the guide was saying. maybe some information about the location,... More

Today we visited Cactus Jacks Ocala location and took the two hour land bridge ride. Harrison was our guide and was pleasant and right on time, and the horses were so sweet. This is a slow paced, leisurely walk with nice scenery, I recommend for new riders and children. This stable accepts cash and cards, offers a large parking lot... More

We took a guided trail ride today, and the experience was fantastic! I'm a very seasoned rider, but my husband has never ridden. They had horses to accommodate both of our levels, and our guide, Rob, was friendly and knowledgeable. The horses' care was excellent as well - from hoof maintenance to body condition, I could tell they were given... More

Took my 2 granddaughters (ages 9 and 11) for a trail ride. We went for 1 1/2 hour ride. The trails were great very quiet and serene. I got to ride Hook who was very gentle. 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

Recently went on the one hour guided greenway trail ride with my girlfriend. Their were two other riders (a father and his young daughter who was riding for the first time) and our trail guide. 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
