We provide horse hauling transport to the World Equestrian Center and anywhere within Florida. Guests can bring their own horses and dogs to stay for a while and enjoy the professional regulation sized dressage arena, round pen and the expertise of Jennifer L Schuck - career equine professional riding instructor and guide. The horseback riding experience is unique as it is only your private group of 1-6 riders and can be on-farm with obstacle course or off the farm with horse country trails and carriage ride tours of horse country.
You are in complete control of your horse under the guidance of Jennifer -your horse does not just walk behind a horse in front of it. You have free access to the barn and pastures during your farmstay and are free to visit and interact with the 16+ horses as you wander the 25 acres. Non-lodging guests are also welcome to visit and enjoy pasture walks, carriage rides, hands-on workshops, unicorn sessions, "pony party" and all of the family and kid friendly horse activities. Come enjoy the beauty of nature.
