Experience natural Florida just as the founding settlers did – on horseback. Forever Florida boasts some of the best riding in Central Florida featuring historic trails first used for horseback riding by Native Americans back in the 1500’s. Your adventure even includes a trip through Bull Creek!

You’ll make your way through the native foliage while being led by a knowledgeable guide who provides insight and commentary about your encounters along the way. It’s a real safari through unspoiled Florida ecosystems rarely seen anymore.

Depending on water level your feet may get wet. All guests joining us for a guided horseback trail ride should wear long pants and close-toed shoes as a part of our safety assurance policy.

Forever Florida is bringing back the Rawhide Roundup, and it’s better than ever!  After a short training session in riding a cattle horse and a bit of practice, riders will head out to the pastures to gather the herd and drive it into the arena. There they’ll learn to hold the herd and take turns cutting and sorting.

  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Minimum Age: Children with parent or guardian 10 years old
  • Experience: Recommended
  • Max Weight: 265 lbs.

This isn’t a walking-pace trail ride.  Confident “cowhands” will be able to trot and lope their horses in the arena to keep the herd tight, run down strays and bring out selected animals. Better contact Reservations right away.  This is an adventure you won’t want to miss.

Your expert guide will get you up-close to everything as you make your way over land and water onboard our special open-air safari coaches, elevated 5 feet off the ground for a fantastic view of everything. Hold onto your seat and get your cameras ready for the Florida photo-adventure of a lifetime.

Your wild Florida adventure begins with a trip through the Crescent J, a picturesque Florida ranch featuring a living museum of Spanish Colonial Cattle and Florida’s unique Cracker Horses. These are direct descendants of those brought over by Ponce de Leon and other Spanish settlers in the 1500’s. Once on the trail, our knowledgeable guides provide insight and commentary about your encounters with the Florida wilderness. As you reach the border of the Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation area, the contrast between ranchland and the wilderness of Forever Florida becomes evident.

Watch for native Florida wildlife – alligators, turtles, the colorful wild turkey, white tail deer and possibly the protected and endangered Florida Panther. Next, you’ll visit a floodplain forest and take a stroll along a boardwalk with an up-close view of Bull Creek, a “blackwater” stream of clear, tea-colored water clean enough to drink – if you’re very thirsty. The water and plant life also help to clean the air. We recommend taking a deep breath – there is no air in Florida more pure than here! Bull Creek Boardwalk

Returning through several different ecosystems, you’ll be relaxed and ready for the amenities offered back at the Visitor Center – have a good country meal at the Cypress Restaurant, shop for the perfect souvenir or collectable at the Forever Florida Marketplace or sit a spell in a rocking chair on the veranda and watch the alligators in our lake. Take your pick to mark the end of a perfect visit to Forever Florida.
