Myakka River Ranch
At Myakka River Ranch, a herd of majestic horses lets visitors feel the liberating rush of flying through the grass atop a sturdy saddle. Among the stable's friendly inhabitants, an American Saddlebred performs tricks, an American Paint Horse frolics in the ranch's streams, and an Akhal-Teke mare—descended from the strong, golden horses bred in Persia more than 3,000 years ago—gallops in the outdoor arena. Along with lessons that impart the basics of English-style riding, Myakka's staff leads trail rides amid the scenic landscape, where majestic oak trees and open fields distract the horses from exploring the local sugar-cube quarry.

“I took the guy I have recently started dating, neither of us has recent experience on a horse, it was a really great time! It was "theraputic" in his words. The horses were well cared for and their stories were wonderful. Almost all of them are rescues that have been nursed back to health. Dasha was a great guide and shared the story of several of the horses as well as the story and plans for the ranch. She made sure the whole group was safe and having a nice time. We will definately go back!”
“Didn't know about it until I saw it on Groupon. Dasha and her horses were very sweet and we had a great time. ”
“Very friendly. I would do it again in a heart beat! Great people and appreciated all the time they spent with us!”
