Horseback Riding, Lessons, Carriage Rides and other horse activities

Diamond Oaks Farm provides the riding experiences of dreams!

What is unique about riding at this Ocala FL ranch?    

  • You will ride free-rein and are in charge of your horse rather that just walking a "zombie-horse" behind the tail of the horse in front of it on a preset trail in a long line of horses doing the same walk. 

  • Both English and Western riding are available.

  • Ages 2 and older will enjoy riding lessons and horseback riding in the company of a life-time horse career expert with only your private group of 1-6 riders.   

  • Discounted riding experiences are automatically applied for lodging, RV hookup, and camping guests

  • The option of a lesson one day followed by a trail ride a following day (guests recommend!) 

  • The option of an evening carriage ride to relax and enjoy a horse country tour after your time in the saddle. (BYOB)

    Jennifer L. Schuck is an incredible riding coach - to have an expert of her caliber here is a real gift.  You will gain a lot from the experience with her and her well trained horses, whether you have never ridden or are a fellow professional rider.  

    Carriage Rides

    An evening carriage ride is a  wonderful way to relax at the end of the day and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  It is also perfect for those who prefer a bench seat to a saddle but still wish to interact with horses and experience horse country the best way possible - from a horses point of view!


    Time-slots are available first come-first served. 


    Special event rides can be arranged, such as engagements, honeymoons, anniversaries, and birthdays.   Bring your favorite beverages!
