Enjoy a Tranquil Alafia River State Park Horse Trail Ride in Lithia, Florida!
Join us for equestrian trail riding at Alafia River State Park, centrally-located near Tampa bay. The Alafia park is a former phosphate mine. Mining altered the landscape and created new landforms, including several small lakes and steep grades. This makes it great for trail riding.
Your guide will point out all the wildlife you may come across. Part of the ride will take you to the lake’s edge. Keep your eyes peeled as you may see water birds, turtles, and even an alligator. Most of the ride routes through the manicured shady trails. Find a perfect spot and your guide will do a quick photo shoot for you.
Horseback Riding in Tampa, FL lets you leave the stress of the city behind. The first part of your excursion will be a meet and greet. Your instructor will match you with your beautiful rescued gypsy horse. You will marvel at their beauty and quiet nature. Once you look into their eyes, your heart will melt. Next, you will receive your riding instructions. Then, mount up and begin your journey. You may feel like you are riding a magical unicorn through an enchanted forest…well you just might be.
After the ride is over, you will get another chance to love on your horse. This is where you help us with our rescues, as 90% of our horses were rescued. After you give them the carrots that you brought for them, you give them their final rub and kiss goodbye. You see, you are showing them that not all humans are BAD!
