Debbie Zito has owned and loved horses for over 50 years. She and husband Jamie are both riders and own quite a few rescued or retired horses as well as the trail horses used for this ride. We take pride in the care given our animals. We both believe that horses enjoy having a job to do if they are healthy and fit.
Jamie was raised in Fort Lauderdale until age of 21. At the age of 23 he moved to south central Florida where he worked as a guide and foreman for a cattle company that also outfitted hunters on Lake Kissimmee. That is where he started riding and loving horses. He moved to north central Florida ten years ago and started Village Air and Electric. Jamie guides on weekends with Deb.
Tammy Bischell has worked with horses for several years and is now going to be chief guide (and bottle washer) at Rock Springs Run Reserve. She is a fun and very informative guide. We welcome her aboard at our new location!
Michele is a full time school teacher at Forest High School, teaching English (God Bless her). She has owned horses and enjoyed trail riding for the last 12 years. She is great with people and horses and has been a terrific weekend guide for Cactus Jack's Trail Rides.
Rock Springs Run Trail Rides(Cactus Jack's) offers trail rides to singles, couples, or groups. All rides are guided to assure safety for rider and horse. There are trails through the 14,000 acres at Rock Springs Run Reserve. The trails are partly shaded and partly in open spaces. This is a very relaxing and fun experience. There is an abundance of wildlife within the park.
Our horses are gentle and friendly. They like people and enjoy their job. We take excellent care of them and in return they will take excellent care of you.
We use a tall, sturdy mounting block to help riders of all ages in getting on and off. This is much safer and more comfortable for both horse and rider.
We ride on beautiful trails in thousands of acres of Florida State Land. There are trails that are partly shaded for summer riding and trails that are more out in the open for the other seasons. Great trails, well trained horses, and experienced guides make for really happy riders!
We also offer a hitch wagon with horses for special events. Call for details.
Great family outdoor activity!!
