Trail Rides

Rymar Logo

Rymar Ranch adjoins the 44,000 acre Withlacoochee State Forest by a fence in the back of the 20 acre property. The forest is filled with a plethora of wilderness trails open to horseback riders. Upon your arrival at the ranch, you can expect a friendly environment, professional staff, and a clean modern equestrian facility.

Rymar Ranch horses are calm, gentle, and always beautifully maintained. Whether you are a first time rider or have years of experience, the trail staff can customize your ride to suit your riding abilities.

We offer one, one and a half, and two hour rides in the forest. We can accommodate riders from ages 7 and up.

About the Withlacoochee State Forest.........

After exiting the back gate of the Rymar Ranch facility, the forest provides miles of unspoiled natural trails. Rolling hills filled with limestone caves, mature stands of longleaf pines, and live oak trees which tower above the winding cleared paths, cover the area. This environment has created a habitat that allows generous amounts of light to reach the forest floor, thus creating a collection of under-story foliage. This forest provides a wonderful habitat for several endangered species including the gopher tortoise, the pileated woodpecker, and the scrub jay. Also among the inhabitants are white tail deer, coyote, fox, florida panther, fox squirrel, raccoon, armadillo, hawk, bald eagle, wild turkeys, and quail just to name a few.

Once you have ridden through the Withlacoochee forest, you will understand why the World Wide Wildlife Fund has deemed this forest as one of the "Top Ten Coolest Places You've Never Seen" in North America. There is no better way to explore this remarkable natural wonder than by horseback.
