$49 for a 90-Minute Guided Horseback Trail Ride ($100 Value)
Groups of up to three venture through woodlands and past lakes on horseback, stopping midway for a respite and a bite to eat. Steeds will walk then trot at straightaways. This deal is recommended for those aged 10 and up with at least some riding experience.
The Alafia River slowly flows along the edge of Misty Farms, where 15 acres of woodsy terrain serve as an idyllic training ground for horses and their owners. As steeds sleep in 12'x12' matted stalls or search for misplaced lottery tickets in the fenced-off grass jumping fields, the staff of trainers teaches lessons that foster camaraderie between riders and mounts with topics ranging from basic care to more complicated jumps and show maneuvers. Outside the paddocks, visitors hop on the saddle for trail rides along the river, enjoying the slow gait of a quiet trek in the woods or a speedy gallop of a train-robbery getaway.
