Spotlight: Horse World Riding Stables

This attraction is now closed.

Want to do something different from the theme parks?  Only about 25 miles from the Orlando area, you can get away from the crowds and get back to the basics at Horse World Riding Stables.  Here, you can explore hundreds of acres of the beauty of nature on horseback and see the beautiful Florida countryside.

No matter what your level of riding experience is, they will match you up with a horse that is suitable for you.  You can enjoy 3 levels of riding tours:  beginner, intermediate, or expert.  And, you can ride as young as 4 years old.  Of course, the tours are geared towards your level of expertise, so you don’t have to worry about doing a lot of running if you’re a beginner, but if you are experienced, you will get to trot and canter much more.  The tours run about an hour and reservations are recommended.  These beautiful sandy trails are only used for the tours, so it’s like getting your own private tour through the country.  Experience the way Florida used to be – away from the hustle and bustle of the city! And, you may even see some native wildlife in their natural habitat.

Spotlight: Florida EcoSafaris

Get in touch with the Wild Side at Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida.  Experience a wild, natural Florida that most people do not get to see.  You can choose your own fully-guided adventure from the Coach Safari, Horseback Safari, and the adventurous Zip line Safari.  This special attraction boasts 9 Florida Ecosystems!  This wildlife conservation area is home to many native plants, flowers and animals, including white-tail deer, black bears, alligators, and the endangered Florida Panther in their natural habitat.

The Coach Safari is an open air coach that brings you on a 2-hour tour through the beautiful 4,700 acre Forever Florida wildlife conservation area.  Midway through your adventure, you’ll get a chance to walk the boardwalk that winds through 500 year old cypress trees and takes you over the Bull Creek floodplain.

Or, feel like you are going back in time on the Horseback Safari, where you can ride the historic trails the native Americans used back in the 1500s.  Choose between a 1, 2, or 3 hour ride through the wildlife conservation area.  Horses are individually picked for each rider, and the tour is fully guided, so no need to worry if you aren’t an experienced rider.

For those ready for an aerial view, zipping up to 25 miles an hour, the Zipline Safari is for you! Your guided tour will let you soar through the tree tops 55 feet off the ground along runs spanning up to 750′ in length and make your way across two sky-bridges!  What a great way to enjoy Florida’s natural flowers and wildlife!   (That is if you can keep your eyes open- what an adventure!)

Florida EcoSafaris allow you to see a side of Florida that has been preserved as nature intended.  (Approximately 50 miles from the Orlando area.)  And is one of the attractions you can go to for free with your Go Orlando Card, which is a discount card for area attractions.
