Horseback Riding is a Fun Activity

Although many people wouldn't think about horseback riding in Destin, there are beautiful trails in Northwest Florida. There are thousands of acres of State Forest throughout Northwest Florida, which is great landscape for a trail ride. Horseback riding is great for all ages and the little ones can ride on a horse with an adult. The stables are kept clean and the horses are well taken care of.

What are the Trail Rides Like?

where to ride horseback destinThe trail rides start out with an introductory lesson for those who are new to riding. The guides want to make sure the riders are comfortable with the horses. Once the people are comfortable, the guide will take the group through the forest trails. The horses are very easy to maneuver and they typically just follow each other. When one horse stops, they all will typically stop. The trail rides usually last an hour and the guide will make sure everything goes smoothly. It is best to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Flip flops or sandals may come off while riding and it's hard to get off the horse in the middle of a trail ride. We recommend booking a Destin horseback ride because they are great for a non-beach related activity.
