What You Can Expect

Horseback Riding at Forever Florida Eco-Reserve

Exploring the Wildlife Conservation Lands on Horseback

This 1.5-hour horseback ride begins with a meet and greet with the expert tour guide — and a horse, of course. The horses are matched with each rider’s personality and level of horseback riding experience. That being said, first-time riders are always more than welcome on this unique adventure.

Then head out to the pristine conservation area, including nine distinct Florida ecosystems with an endless amount of natural flora and fauna. Local residents include alligators, black bears, white-tailed deer, nearly 200 species of birds and the Florida panther. 

Ride along the same trails that were first traveled by Native Americans back in the 1500s. Take a short walk to explore a floodplain forest and boardwalk. Then ride through the headwaters of Bull Creek, a stream of clear, tea-colored water (known as blackwater) that’s actually clean enough to drink. The water and plant life here help to clean the air, so take a deep breath — it’s the freshest air in all of Florida.

This tour was fantastic, very scenic and guides knew the history of the place and answered any questions we had. It was great for all levels as my dad had never ridden a horse an he enjoyed it too. Well worth the money and the good weather is almost guaranteed not like the UK! Definitely recommended...

Absolutely excellent. Our guide Maggie was very informative, the trail was very interesting and the horses were very well behaved. Maggie answered all our questions and genuinely seemed to care for the eco-reserve. We all enjoyed this trip very much and would recommend to anyone of any riding ability, from complete beginner onwards.
