A perfect excursion for the entire family, both kids and first-time riders will delight in the experience. Offering a slice of Old Florida, you’ll have the hard choice of deciding between horseback riding on the beach or exploring the quiet back roads on a peaceful trail hidden behind the farm.
You’ll get to see one of Florida’s finest horse parks, and along the way, you’ll learn about Tampa Bay’s ecology, history, and the horses. All the horses at Cypress Breeze Farm are rescue horses, and it is the strength and power of these animals that will impress you the most as you soak in the picturesque landscapes and serene ambiance surrounding you.
Ensuring you have an intimate horseback riding excursion, the groups are small with no more than four people on the beach excursion. The farm prides itself on not overworking the horses, making sure that both the horses and visitors have a positive experience. The guides make sure to pair the horses with the right person to ensure that you can sit back and relax and enjoy the journey.
The farm also offers an array of other horse-related adventures, including an equine yoga course where you can learn to improve your balance and relieve stress. Pony rides are perfect for the little ones, while those who want to stay on two feet can still interact with the horses in an hour-long private session.
