Horseback Riding

Saddle up and enjoy a Florida horseback riding adventure along the miles of unspoiled beauty at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo. Forty-five-minute trail rides are led by our experienced wranglers, where even beginners learn the ropes and feel like real cowboys. You can now reserve your time slot in advance! If 45 minutes isn't near enough time to bond with your horse and nature, extended rides are also available. Long pants and a hat are recommended. Remember your horse's name because you might recognize it helping in the Saturday Night Rodeo. Do you have a little one 7 years old or younger who still wants to ride? Check out our Pony Rides, where your young cowpoke can create memories that will last a lifetime.
