Florida has always been horse country so take a step back into the old west when the only mode of transportation was to saddle up and giddy up. Most visitors to South Florida keep themselves so busy sunning, swimming, sailing and clubbing, that they never dream that the best of the west is only a hoof-beat away. So why not feel the wind blowing on your face, hear the sound of thundering hooves and take in the sights and sounds of South Florida’s amazing horse trails.

      Many posts have been made that no one can find a riding stable IN the Keys. There is a boarding, training, and lesson facility available for tourists and residents. Instead of traveling hours north to the mainland, come visit Reef Side Stables, founded by Lynn Eklund and recently with Assistant Trainer Katie Derer. These professionals have over 30 + years equestrian experience in Hunters, Jumpers, and Dressage. They have lessons available for children, adults, and even fun camps! Whether you are on vacation or ready to start something new and exciting, call Lynn at 305-393-7346
