We loved every minute of our time at Arnett's Gulfside Stables. Such a good time that my granddaughter wants to come back next year and take some lessons. The trail guides were absolutely the best and we enjoyed our conversations while on the ride. I have already booked another ride for tomorrow. It's an advanced ride this time I can't... More

My friend and I wanted to do something different on a beautiful sunny day. Everyone at Arnetts was wonderful! Bonnie greeted us and she was so sweet and fun! Her husband Michael was our Trail guide. He picked the perfect horses for us. And gave us a great lesson before our ride. It was very enjoyable. And I will absolutely... More

I haven't ridden a horse since I was in elementary school with my family in Arizona. So I decided for my 26 birthday that I was going to go horseback ridding. I took my sister, mom, and aunt with me. And you know we had a blast. This is a "must go", everyone there was welcoming and we didn't feel... More

I've ridden all my life and tend to shy away from tourist destination stables and riding. Often horses are not well cared for, instructors/guides lacking experience and stables less than desirable. Not the case with Arnett's! What a fabulous activity for the whole family. Our family, party of 8, arrived with a diverse level of experience, including several who had... More

I have been a horsewoman for 50+ years however my husband had never been on a horse and wasn't really interested in being on a horse - ever. I convinced him to try this trail ride and he loved it. He couldn't stop talking about it. We are in our 60's and this was a perfectly comfortable ride that would... More

I've had a horse ride on my bucket list for over 40 yrs. But, I've always been afraid to get on a horse. My husband grew up around horses. So, when we took a trip to Florida I decide it was time to take that ride! Jackie did a quick demo on how to get on and ride. It really... More

We were staying near Seaside after Labor Day, and decided to spend one of our mornings on a trail ride to let our sunburns from the beach cool off. Neither of us are really riders, but they quickly got us comfortable with the horses. Great trails and scenery, we'll definitely be doing another ride when we're back in Florida.

Michael and Bonnie put everything into making sure riders are safe and have an enjoyable time. Our family of 6 ranged from 68 to 9 years old and each one of us left this trail ride with a smile on our face! Great experience.

My husband, son (10), daughter (13) and I were staying in Panama City Beach and wanted a day getaway. Our daughter loves horses, but our son - not so much. He surprised us and said he wanted to go. Once on the horse he became very scared. The staff at Arnett's were AMAZING with him. He was on the owner's... More

Let's be realistic - it is not that difficult to break a horse (for an experienced trainer) and once broken, it is a matter of repetition and reinforcement. That's the easy part (for them) and most trail rides have this foundation ... or they would be out of business. It is up to the friendliness and information-sharing of the staff... More
