Lady Palm Ranch in Miami is a horse stable that offers a trail ride along the Everglades Canal Waterway, and it is one and a half hours long. A maximum of four riders is allowed per group, and children are allowed as long as they are 5 years of age and above. The ranch is located in Miami, Florida, and it has everything you need for your equestrian activities. Whether you’re an experienced rider or a beginner, the ranch can be able to accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a satisfying experience.
Apart from horseback riding, Lady Palm Ranch provides other activities such as team penning, sorting, cutting, calf roping and barrel racing. All these events are great for team bonding because teamwork is the key, with both riders working in harmony to cut out the correct cattle and drive them to the pen while keeping the wrong cattle back. There is plenty of food and drinks available for everyone participating in these events, and music is provided for entertainment. The good thing is that the ranch is only 5 minutes away from Miami, and trailer parking is available for visitors.
The ranch is recommended for anyone who wants to get out of Miami and spend the whole day riding horses. If you are a beginner, you are allowed to spend some extra time with the horses in the stables so that you can familiarize yourself with them. You can also spend time grooming the horses, which is a great experience. The amazing thing is that these horses have so much experience being ridden that when you are out on the trail, they know their way around. So you can’t get lost because the horses will follow one another. Even if you are not going to ride horses, Lady Palm Ranch is a wonderful place to go and have fun while watching the various events that are going on.
