Trail Rides

Trail riding on the Emerald Coast of Florida doesn't get any better!

Located conveniently close to the Destin, Florida beaches, Arnett's Gulfside Ranch has Trail Rides, Stables, a Campground and a horse for everyone! With 13,800 acres of State Forest, there is plenty of riding to fill up your day. 

Our experienced trail bosses are available to take individuals or groups on guided horse rides through the beautiful forest.  If you'd like, we are happy to point out interesting facts about the forest and places to go in and around Santa Rosa Beach, as well as the Emerald Coast area. You will find our horses are very well taken care of, surefooted and happy out on the trail. 


Before a trail ride we provide a short riding instruction to familiarize you with our horses, and then a full hour trail ride for only $50 per person.  Our facility is extremely friendly to new riders and our staff is happy to help you get comfortable on the saddle before we hit the trail.


The long needle pine forest with its unique vegetation; including flowers like rosemary, lupine, native grasses and palmettos is a beautiful experience to immerse yourself in. Every season in Northwest Florida has something new and wonderful to offer .   


The normal one hour guided ride is $50 per person. Children under 6 are not allowed on the trail rides.  Six and seven year old children are ponied by a guide.
