I loved my trip to Desert Acres Stables! As an avid horse person, I am always concerned primarily with one thing when seeking out a trail ride--care of the horses, and Donna takes great care of her horses, who she treats as family! Two of us with very different levels of horse experience went on a 2 hour trail ride... More

We had a great time at Desert Acre Stables. Donna is extremely friendly and a great (as well as patient) teacher. Even though there was a little rain during our 2 hour trial ride we had so much fun riding through streams and through woods that we barely noticed. The horses are very well trained and do exactly what you... More

2nd visit and just as enjoyable as the first. Donna makes you feel like your riding out with your best pal, 3 hours on an excellent mount (Geronimo) thousands of acres to explore, rivers to splash through and being able to let your hair down. Looking forward to my 3rd visit :-)

I've never been horseback riding but man is it fun! I heard about Desert Acres from a friend and it is definitely the best way to spend a sunday morning.

Our family included our 11 year old daughter and two middle aged females. None of us have ridden a horse in years. Had a wonderful time with Donna. All of the horses were easy to ride and the trails were fun. None of us were saddle sore at all. Donna was very helpful as was very aware of making sure... More

I came to Florida for Easter break from Michigan. I read about Desert Acres on line. I had an awesome time!! The owner, Donna, and I rode for 2 hours. We were able to trot and canter instead of just walking in a line. We went through brush, sand, up and down hills, and ran through small river beds. It... More
