Since we are between Ocala and Gainesville, FL and we have already listed a few of Ocala's finest. We thought we would also scope out some quality horse riding programs in Gainesville, Fl. It turns out there are many to choose from, but here are some we thought deserved some recognition.

Haile Equestrian LLC

"Horseback riding lessons are available through multiple instructors at Haile Equestrian.
