Written with both the experienced and the casual rider in mind, Florida on Horseback II offers more of what readers loved in Florida on Horseback, both written by equestrian Cornelia Bernard Henderson. This volume covers all of the available trails, state parks, beaches, and horse rental venues from of Ocala--the unofficial "horse capital of the world"--north to the state line, east to Jacksonville, and west to Pensacola.
Adventures abound, including Big Shoals State Park, Devil's Hammock, Eglin Air Force Base Property, and Mickler's Beach. The guide is a handy companion for an experienced rider's weekend kit, or an amateur's library. And for those without horses of their own, suggestions on nearby horse rental venues are included.
Henderson provides an overview of the Florida ecology riders will encounter in their travels, as well as a profile of each destination. Florida on Horseback includes directions, maps, photographs, and thorough descriptions of facilities and trails. A quick reference rating system and icons for important factors such as sun exposure, difficulty level, and camping accommodations makes this a must-have guide for trail riders and horse campers. Whether you're a local exploring some of the state's wilderness or a tourist looking to gallop along a beach, Florida on Horseback will help you enjoy the millions of acres in the state open to riding.
