Comment: My brother and I really enjoyed our afternoon at Orange Blossom Trail Rides. Sandi was very knowledgeable and helpful. Her horses were gentle and healthy. She paired me with Flash: he was a perfect match for my beginner-level riding experience. Thanks again for a lovely time :)

The trail was ~2 hours through the beautiful Geothe forest. The trail was easy, peaceful and all levels could enjoy this.

Sandi was a fantastic host and made sure we enjoyed ourselves, and was extremely knowledgeable of all the flora and fauna in the area.

Comment: My husband and daughter had a wonderful time. We went for my daughters 12th birthday (I didnt ride, but interacted with Sandi and her horses). Sandi is a great teacher/instructor and you can just tell how much she loves and cares for her animals. Her horses were the sweetest, calmest, most loving horses weve ever interacted with. Will be coming back.

Comment: Our nonprofit organization, Childrens Dream Adventures, sent a foster family on a vacation, and horseback riding is one of the activities that they chose. We had a last-minute mix up with the reservation due to an error I made booking the ride online. Sandi graciously upgraded the family from the trail bud ride to the full blossom ride at no additional charge. The family had an amazing time and highly recommends Sandi, and Orange Blossom Trail Rides, as do I!!!

The open fields where the animals roam are just beautiful! Sandy was very patient with us before and after the tour. We spent a lot of time with the horses. She even gave us treats to feed them. This place is about 45 minutes from my house, but its my new go to place for horseback riding.Kenyatta

Comment: Had an amazing time horseback riding today with Sandi. She is so nice, must be because she’s originally from Minnesota. Drove to the ranch from the Orlando area. It was a nice, easy drive. The trail we went on was in a state forest. So pretty. All the horses were so beautiful and well behaved.

Comment: Sandi was awesome! She made an extra ride time for us later in the evening. She was extremely accommodating and spent lots of time talking about the area and educating us on the animals along the way. She was very attentive to our beginner riding status and helped us learn to be comfortable with the horses. Absolutely would come back here again! And the horses of course were all sweet and clearly trained well to work with people of all experience levels.

Comment: Today was a WONDERFUL DAY! Sandy is so great! I have taken many trail rides around this country and I can say these horses are probably the best taken care of Ive ever seen for community trail ride horses. They are gentle and VERY easy to ride. Sandy has trained them perfectly!!! They are healthy and happy. Ive never seen such a crew of happy horses!!! I will definitely come back with more friends and family:)

She has such a passion for the animals in her care, you can see the love they have for her the minute she walked out to the paddocks. The babies (miniature horses) were so sweet, I just loved giving them scratches and seeing them smile. The trails were awesome, very well maintained! A great time all around.

Comment: Wonderful trail ride! The group I joined had all experience levels and Sandi handled us all patiently and very professionally. The horses were all beautiful and friendly. They were all saddled and ready for us when we arrived. Sandi matches you with a horse that will fit you. She put the bridle on, introduced you to your horse and pointed out any quirks....mine doesnt like gravel so I let him chose his path the few times there were stones. Most of the trail was sandy or just dirt in the forest. Lovely ride.

We have four kids ageing from 7-11 and we are all first time riders. Most of us were very nervous at first! Sandy made us very comfortable and got us going on our group trail ride quicker then I expected. Her horses were great with the children and understanding of our lack of knowledge in riding. I can tell they are each loved and cared for, they absolutely love their job. The trail was perfect for us starters and we look forward to meeting again to explore more of her beautiful trails with her beautiful horses.

Comment: After not being around horses for almost a year, I called spontaneously Orange Blossom Trail Rides if they had a trail ride going out that day. Sandi the owner was so kind and said sure come on out, they will have a trail ride later that afternoon. I was amazed when I drove true the gate and up the hill. As I reach the top of the hill, the sight was just beautiful. Horses and Goats grazed peacefully in the fields, 6 Horses where groomed and saddled for our little group to go out. All the horses where perfectly matched with their riders. I got the pleasure to meet and ride sweet Peaches. Sandi made sure everyone was happy, and you can clearly tell she loves her horses so much and has a wealth of knowledge :-) On top, to be able to ride right out of the property and in to the magical Goethe Forest is just WOW. I live in Ocala for some time and used to work with horses, but to find a quality Facility to go for a casual trail ride is rare to find. I am looking forward to have many more trail rides, just longer then on hour :-) Thank you again, for a wonderful Saturday afternoon!Conny

Comment: My boyfriend and I went for a ride yesterday to celebrate my birthday. We were both completely inexperienced but Sandi showed us the ropes and was patient with us as we were learning. Some people that leave negative reviews may have had false expectations that you just sit there and enjoy the ride, but people should understand that these are intelligent animals with minds of their own, so it does take a small amount of effort on your part to guide the horse. They are well trained, and as long as you follow Sandis instructions, the horses will listen! Nothing that we did was physically demanding or difficult in any way.By the end of the ride we both felt a lot more comfortable on our horses. You can tell she really cares for all of her animals and treats them with so much love and respect. They were very well behaved and we both felt very safe with them. All in all we had a great first time riding, and the trails we rode were amazing. The property itself was beautiful and well maintained, plus we were so close to the springs that we were able to visit them while we were in the area. It was a great day! We cant wait to come back.

Comment: Five of us went today on Mothers Day and my daughters 10th birthday. We had a wonderful time the horses were great. I will remind everybody that you are in Florida so we do have sugar sand everywhere. So parts of the trail you will have dust flying up. Hate to see a bad review just because of dust being thrown up by the horses. Definitely recommend this place. There was two other groups that came with us as well. Which we didnt have a problem with they were great groups. We even got to see a proposal that was sweet. If youre looking for just a basic trail ride for beginners or even advanced this is a great place to go wonderful scenery wonderful horses Sandi was great.

Comment: Don’t pass up an opportunity to support small and local businesses. It is apparent that orange blossom is a throw back to old Florida when you come to visit Sandi and take a ride. Trail ride through the state forest and part of her property was great. The horses were gentle albeit interested in all sorts of vegetation but as an inexperienced rider found it easy to handle them and correct them. Loved the history lesson on the springs and activities around us that we don’t realize their importance once Disney opened and took over the state. We had a great time on the ride and will bring our kids up in the future. FYI also went to one of her neighbors for blueberry picking. We barley got into the blueberry field before we picked Two pounds of yummy berries.

I am not experienced with horses at all and the instructor made me feel completely safe and comfortable by putting me on the beautiful horse names Black Ice. Try couldn’t have had a better time. Highly recommend for any families.

Sandi creates a wonderful safe learning experience and is an awesome professional instructor and coach. Her instructions were clear and created a safe ridding experience. I rode Flash and he was so calm and responsive. We rode on her 80 acre ranch and then went on the trails of Gothe National Forest. Amazing!!!!!!

Sandi was professional and you could tell that she loves her horses. She actually teaches you about the equipment and what it does. She teaches you how to ride and expects that you listen, which indicates to me that she is serious about safety!! We will be returning on our next trip to Florida!!Oh and even though we called on short notice for an appointment and it was Sandis birthday ...she was as able to accommodate us. Thank you and happy birthday Sandi!!!

The horses were beautiful and friendly. Sandi was very personable and great to talk with along the trail ride. The Gothe Forest was absolutely beautiful to ride through. Would highly recommend going to Orange Blossom if you’re looking for a great ride with greatly trained horses, for anyone beginner to expert.

Comment: We rode at Orange Blossom Trails Saturday, Aug. 1st. We had a group of 7 ages 8-80, and a 13 year old not from our group who also joined us. I am not an experienced rider and have only done these types of arranged trail rides. This was the best one I have been on. The horses were great and seemed to get along well with each other (not true at several other places Ive been). My horse was very sweet and easy to control- we trotted a few times, which I enjoyed. My son, age 8, was very nervous, due to a previous incident with a horse elsewhere. She took the time(and effort) to actually lead his horse with a line during the ride. She briefly had him trotting--something that was his worst fear- and he loved it. Hes already asked to go back there again. The ride itself is very scenic and goes through a fairly heavily wooded area of the Goethe National Forest. My wife is an experienced rider and owned 2 horses growing up. She can be a fairly tough judge of riding guides/instructors and she was very impressed with Ms Sandy, which is probably the best praise I can give her. If were up in that area again well definitely go back for another ride.

Sandi gave me an awesome sweet horse named peaches! She was a very well behaved horse! And if I (someone who hasn’t rode a horse in over 9 years) can Handel peaches anyone else can! I would recommend orange blossom trail rides 100 percent! I will be going back!

She guided my 12yr old sons horse (to his relief), as he was extremely nervous about riding. But within the first 5 minutes he kept saying that he was really enjoying himself and having fun!

Comment: We went on a group ride this Sunday and it was one adult with three teenage girls and anyone that has had a teenager knows how challenging it.os with just one teenager much less three and Ms Sandy accommodated us with no problems and was extremely knowledgeable in the local fauna and and animals to keep the younger ones intrigued and Interested even though I think I enjoyed her trivia the most lol. Ms Sandy also made this the best trailride I have ever experienced because out of the numerous times I have gone throughout my life I have never had the opportunity to do more then a trot and we were able to get into a full gallop more then once which was invigorating and exciting for all of us! The trails are absolutely beautiful and accessible right from her property making it easy for us to enjoy nature without actually having to go onto a road except to cross into the national park. It was also very nice because all the trials are so shaded and provided a nice scenic atmosphere very much different them what you stereotypically think of when you go to Florida. Thank you Ms Sandy for your wonderful trained horses and having such a wealth of knowledge and experience, we truly appreciate you taking the time out to accommodate us and hope we can get to Ocala again and ride with you in the future!!!

Comment: My wife booked us a trail ride as a surprise birthday gift for me yesterday 8/4/19. To my understanding during the planning/booking process, Sandi, the owner of OBTR was very friendly and very informative. Being that this was going to be our first time riding a horse, my wife was extremely nervous and I’m not going to lie but so was I (maybe not as much)🤣. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Sandi, and immediately I could sense her passion for horses and seeing the way she handle them reassured me that my wife had made the right choice. She was very thorough with showing us the ropes ;) and once mounted she gave us the opportunity to get comfortable with the horses before hitting the trails. All in all we had such a great experience and would totally recommend this trail riding experience with all family, friends, and anyone reading this review. As a matter of fact, I’m really considering taking lessons with Sandi in the near future🤞

Comment: Very special day with Sandi, Beth, Frosted, Flash, Joker, and Sunny. Coming all the way from Germany, we got in touch with Sandi several weeks before our trip and she took a lot of time helping us plan everything and even suggested where to stay and what else to do in the area. Having very little experience myself, I still felt completely safe on her gentle horse. Our children, who have more experience, loved their horses, too. The scenery was beautiful and we had an amazing time today. Riding with Sandi in Goethe National Forest was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Florida right among swimming with manatees and spotting dolphins in the ocean. We all agree that Sandi deserves her five stars for being so thoughtful and patient with us, very professional and friendly. The horses were wonderful.Our kids very much enjoyed watching the new fillies after our ride and feeding the goats. Well definitely be back in the future.Gloria Gebhardt and family from Germany

We will be telling all of our friends and family of Sandys wonderful ranch. Even her goats came out and said hello! We stayed and chatted with Sandy the longest and she has definitely someone I would call a friend. We normally dont leave reviews, but this is a experience I will talk about for weeks.

Comment: Some friends and I took a one and a half hour trail ride yesterday with Sandi. There was a mix of riding experience within our group, however, Sandi ensured that we were all paired with the perfect horse to match our ability. Our ride through the scenic Goethe Forest was so much fun and Sandi proved to be the perfect guide. Having now discovered Orange Blossom Trail Rides, well definitely be return guests.

Comment: I am a lifelong rider who owns my own horse. My adult nephew and his wife, who have no riding experience, were coming to visit and I wanted to do something typical Ocala so horses definitely needed to be on the itinerary! Sandi was very accommodating from the initial phone call through the entire ride. She picked just the right horses for each of our skill levels which ensured a wonderful and safe ride for all. The Goethe Forest has beautiful trails and Sandi proved to be very knowledgeable. My novice riding relatives loved the experience and felt very safe on Sandis well trained horses. I would highly recommend this trail riding experience for all levels of riding ability.

Comment: My boyfriend and I came here to ride horses after reading all the other great reviews and we were not disappointed! Sandi was incredibly kind and her horses are so well taken care of and you can see the effort she puts into her animals. Her ranch is beautiful and her horses are sweet and fun. My boyfriend is not an experienced rider and was nervous but Sandi made him feel at ease and he actually had a great time. Would highly recommend Orange Blossom Ranch!

Comment: Fantastic trail ride for both experienced and inexperienced riders! Sandi is very knowledgeable about the area and a great guide, we had a wonderful ride and felt comfortable and safe the entire time. Sandi’s property is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of her animals. Joker and Flash were the best trail horses we could ask for!

Comment: Sandy was a wonderful guide. She really loves and cares for these horses.She can work with you whether you are beginner or expert. I have only ridden a couple of times and she taught me how to do a trot and a canter. It was great.The trails are beautiful. Very scenic. The set up took about 30 min and we rode for almost 2 hours. Great trail system.

Comment: Took my two girls (9 and 12) for their first ever horseback trail ride. Sandy took time to acclimate us and ensure the girls were comfortable with the horses. She was awesome with the kids. She engaged them throughout the ride and pointed out all the sites as we went through Geothe forest. Will definitely book again.

Comment: I took my granddaughters 7 and 15 and another family friend. The ride through Goeth was beautiful. I have done trail rides before and was impressed with the care Sandy took before we set out to make sure everyone was fitted to saddles and stirrups especially the youngest. It was a great experience and I highly recommend.

Comment: This place is beautiful!! Large property with many wonderful horses that has loads of space to run around and enjoy their life. The owner Sandi is a very welcoming woman that has lots to tell about her beautiful animals and the area around. We went for a 2 1/2 hour ride in the Goethe State Forest and it was exstremely relaxing and enjoyable. The horses are super sweet and are being cared for in the best way.We loved our experience and will definately come back!

Comment: This was the third place we called and even though it was the third place that didn’t answer, Sandi called right back. It was evident after i checked out the website that this was going to be the place best suited for us because we didn’t want a place that seemed commercialized, meaning we didn’t want to go somewhere we’d be treated like a number. Sandi is so easy to talk with while in the process of making the arrangements while still being professional. The whole experience was just so smooth and pleasant. Great person, great with kids and adults. If i could give six stars i would.- Alex Hogsett

Comment: My granddaughter and I went for a trail ride through the state forest and it was a wonderful way to spend the morning. The horses were great, very gentle and easy to handle. They were all tacked up and ready to go when we got there. The farm is a fun place with goats, miniature horses, ponies and full sized hoses. When we were done my granddaughter was allowed to go in with the goats and miniature horses. It was a great finale for her Florida visit. This week I have two more grandchildren and a daughter who are going and are very excited. I would highly recommend Orange Blossom Ranch.

Comment: What a great experience and time. My daughter rides mostly English and though the trail ride was Western, Sandi made it as close as possible to the style of riding my daughter is comfortable with. Myself, I had not ridden a horse in 40 years and I found the experience amazing! The horses were gentle and easy going. Sandi made an hour and a half trail ride so enyoable that the time flew by. We will go back for a longer trail ride when we come back to Florida.

Comment: As a Florida Master Naturalist and Florida Land Steward, I thoroughly enjoyed being able to see many of the native animals and plants that are unique to west central Fl. And as a horsewoman of 30 years, riding with Sandi made it even more enjoyable talking about horses and wildlife the whole ride. Seeing a male bald eagle fly over us to rest in a tree just added even more to the great experience of my whole 3 day (too short) getaway in Levy county.

Comment: My son Ethan and I went horseback riding here two days ago and had a wonderful experience. Sandi , the owner, is very friendly and knowledgeable . She gave us some helpful instruction before we started since we are both novices. We then enjoyed a leisurely ride through Goethe Forest, even trotting a little on the return trip. Thank you Flash and Joker for a great ride!

Comment: Sandi was very friendly and informative when booking our trail ride. I took my teenage daughter and her friends who have different levels of riding experience. Sandi did a great job explaining to them proper riding along with sharing life lessons. You dont feel like you are in Florida while riding through the state park which is beautiful. You can tell Sandi loves her horses along with all of her ponies and goats on her property. If you are coming in from out of town there is a very nice Comfort Suites in Dunnellon that is 20 minutes away. Also after your horse ride you can go to Rainbow Springs which is about 25 minutes away and beautiful.
