Enjoy A Tranquil Ride Through Deer Prairie Creek Preserve

Conveniently located in Venice. The dominant natural communities are pine flatwoods, mixed hardwood and pine, and wetland hardwoods. Get a real taste of what Florida used to look like.

The first thing you will see is our magnificent Gypsy Vanner and Drum horses. Your guides will match you with the perfect horse. After a short safety meeting you will get ready to mount up and start your adventure. Your guide will point out all the native and non-native wildlife you come across. The ride will take you along the bank of the beautiful Myakka river. You may feel like you are in a western movie!

Leave the stress of the city behind as you explore the trails of Deer Prairie Preserve. Relax as the hustle and bustle of life leaves your mind and you become one with your horse. Your guide will find the perfect spot to take a few pictures and tell the story of your rescued horse.

Once your ride is finished you will have another chance to give your horse a treat and another hug goodbye. 90% of our horses are rescued. Our rides help fund our stable of over 20 horses. With your kindness you are helping us to rehabilitate the horses by showing them not all humans are bad.

Important Information

Your excursion will include a meet and greet with your horse, safety meeting, and your final farewell with the ponies. Please plan on arriving 15-20 minutes before your scheduled ride time. If for any reason the weather is not cooperating, the ride may be altered. Your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities.

Caution – we are selling out FAST! Please book your horseback ride online as far in advance as possible. The picture package is available on the day of your ride starting at $25 for two people.
