Anyone been horse riding in the Orlando area?
If so, where did you go? Was it expensive? How many of you were there in a group?

We have only been the once and we left from the Villas of the Grand Cypress. The actual riding lasted for an hour and it was through some woods and fields on some very well behaved horses. Actually, my horse just wanted to stop and eat while DH's always wanted to be in the lead.:lol:
It was very relaxing and we actually booked a private trail so there was just DH, myself and the leader.

Not me, I'm allergic to horses which is a shame since I love them so much.

We did this at Fort Wilderness, I definitely preferred the tour of Fort Wilderness from the air-conditioned internal bus! The kids all loved it.

we went off site to a place on poincieta blvd (not sure on the spelling) its off the 192 and a bit of a drive but you go out into some really nice woodlands from the ranch there was a slow ride or a fast ride for more experienced riders it was a little bit expensive but worth it i think it was about £127 for the 4 of us but we did it every visit it was so relaxing would recommend it
