My wife and I are local and enjoy riding horses. We wanted to get horses at a place that allowed us to actually ride them- not a place where the horses are like robots. Sun City stables is the only place in the Tampa bay area that offers an individual riding experience. We did take them up on the offer... More

We went two days running for the one hour ride, with a guide. 40 minutes from St. Petes beaches, over the lovely Skyway Bridge. They have a variety of horses for all abilities, which are well fed and good mannered. Also there are Pygmy goats, pot bellied pigs, llamas, miniature horses and chickens wandering around. Do telephone to pre book... More

I read the very mixed bag of reviews about this place before I went. After my visit, I understand why some people rate it very high and others rate it very low. If you are an experienced rider, with saddle time on horses that do NOT just follow the horse in front of them, you'll probably love Sun City Stables.... More

Had a very bizarre phone conversation to make reservation and was made very aware multiple times that whatever we selected we were locked in and could not alter - duration, type of horses, etc. confirmed. I asked for a total which added up quickly, was reminded of cash only as well as "taxes will be a bit" and determined upon... More

Sun City Stables is a very fun place to visit. During our visit we got matched up with horses that we could handle( Dillinger and Harley). Brian was very nice and helped us with tacking up the horses and getting on. He also helped us around the trail for the first hour ( we had the buy two hours get... More

I am an intermediate rider. I went to Sun City Stables so I could ride on their trails and do more than just sit on a horse that would follow along with another horse. Their horses are well taken care of. Rode one of the Paso Finos. Blair took me out to show me the trails and let me get... More

I had a very fun time! I was visiting my cousin who is familiar with riding horses, and the employees were very kind and with their knowledge of me being a beginner and her experienced made sure to pair our horses so they'd be comfortable with one another. They knew what they were doing, and were very friendly. Next time... More

Typically not one for leaving reviews, I feel compelled, after numerous trips to Sun City Stables over the last 5 years (my most recent being yesterday), to leave a review detailing my experience to hopefully combat some of the blatantly false or unusual experiences accounted thus far. I am an intermediate rider from Orlando, FL with a few years of... More

This is a very nice trail riding stable. We had a nice afternoon although I would seriously suggest an early morning ride in the summertime

If you are looking for a natural outdoor experience with horses this place can provide you with the necessary horses and gears to go back country.
