Trail Publications

HORSE TRAILS of FLORIDA is a book that will help and encourage you to explore over 100  Florida Horse Trails.  Horse Clubs have their local trails scouted out, but this book includes horse trails from Georgia to the Everglades, Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf,  SWFWMD to St Johns to State Parks.  They’re all in the book.  This is the most complete, detailed book Florida has ever seen of Horse Trails.  Over 100 trails with 70 maps, phone numbers, addresses, accommodations, directions and short descriptions of every trail.

Even if you don’t own a horse, this book gives the locations of rental horses for beach or forest trail rides…. check them out for your company.  I fox hunt and the Hutchinson Island beach ride was wonderful.
