My kids age 22 and 19 enjoyed their trail ride. It seemed organized. They were at the pace of a walk or slow trot. They saw a good bit of the preserve and alligator lake.

A great family experience! The small animal farm has a wonderful collection of goats, cows, chickens, pigs and sheep that the kids will love, and the pony and trail rides are well done! The guides are fantastic and the facility is impressive.

The Horseback rides, for adults, through the beautiful country side are truly a relaxing time. They have a small outdoor "Zoo" for the youngest family members. Their horses are very easy to ride, as long as you don't let them stop to eat the flowers...More
