Ruxton's Ranch

Our horses are trained by experts and you are assisted by an experienced rider on every ride.

About Us

Ruxton's Ranch Rides is a small family-owned business that wants to provide customers with a fun, relaxing horseback trail riding experience.

We are starting small as we have three total horses, two customer horses, and one horse to guide the way around the beautiful trails. We provide two different trail riding services at the moment.

  • Certified staff
  • Friendly and experienced
  • Night time and evening rides available

We have 3 amazing trail rides to take our riders on and ensure a safe and friendly experience every time.


Pinellas park:
Our most popular horseback trail ride is located in Pinellas Park. Customers will meet us at our barn and ride out onto our local equestrian Trail. This ride provides customers with a beautiful view of a large lakes surrounded by endless horse farms, community horse park, and wooded trails directly in the heart of Pinellas Park. Come check out our hidden gem right in the middle of the city! Rides availability here everyday.

Brooker creek: Our Tarpon Springs ride is located at Booker Creek preserve next to the East Lake soccer complex. The view out here is one you’ll never forget! There is over 8000 acres of endless woods filled with horseback riding trails. Out here you’ll completely forget you’re within minutes of the city. We trailer the horses to the preserve and meet you there. Rides are available every other Sunday morning.

Family horse interactions: Family horse interactions provides families with a fun and educational horse experience. Meet us at our barn located in Pinellas Park and learn all about our horses, how to care for them, and then have the kids take a mini ride around the farm! All ages are welcome. This experience ranges from 45-60minute. To book a family of 4 click the horse interactions button on scheduling site, any additional family members click the “additional people” button underneath.

These services/rides are subject to change. Please check FareHarbor to confirm these rides are available.

Pinellas Park

Our second location is located in Pinellas Park at Helen Howarth Community Park. This ride is about 45 minutes to an hour. We ride to the park from our barn, passing a small lake, lots of horse farms, a couple of roads, and more-this ride is a fun, scenic adventure that we provide during the weekdays in the evenings.

Sign the digital waiver

For ease of use we have a digital waiver for each rider to sign and present to the instructor upon arrival.

Gear up and get riding

We do provide helmets but it is up to the riders to dress for the occasion. No open toe shoes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being in the Florida heat, we try to do the rides during hours of the day when it isn't so hot. The earlier rides are best for the horses and us. We want our horses and customers to be happy at all times and ensure the customer's that they will feel safe and comfortable on the horses. Once we get the helmets on and everyone is up on their horses, we will adjust the stirrups to the size of the riders leg length and make sure the rider can stand up in the saddle (this helps with balance). Next we make sure you can stop the horse, be able to have the horse go when asked and be able to turn your horse left and right. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS BEFORE GOING OUT ON THE TRAILS, PLEASE ASK THE GUIDE. No question is stupid when it comes to riding a horse.
