Ride miles of beautiful sun soaked white sandy beaches of historic Amelia Island Florida on the Original Plantation Horse – the Tennessee Walking Horse.
All our horses are registered Tennessee Walking Horses that perform the original gait. Most Tennessee Walking Horses today have lost the ability to do this gait because of a concentration on breeding for the showgait (otherwise known as a rack or singlefoot). Here at Happy Trails Walking Horses, we breed for the original running walk, for conformation, and for a calm disposition. Come ride in comfort on our gorgeous Plantation Horses while experiencing the Cadillac of Rides. Why bounce in a trot when you can glide in the running walk!
MAKE YOUR DAY MORE SPECIAL
A SPECIAL TREAT
This is a great way to have a fun family outing. Pictured with me here is the family of #88 Allen Hurns of the Jacksonville Jaguars, his mom Erica Wilson, brother Daryl on my right, and other family. We have had a number of retired Super Bowl players over the years.
The way the Jaguars improved this year I expect they’ll be in the Super Bowl in February 2019!
