Rainbow River Riding Ranch

Guided Horseback Rides through the beautiful Halpata Tastanaki Nature Preserve.

Operating as usual


WANTED: visitors who keep to the trails! We recently posted that the state was funding C**t Creek in planting 150 acres in Longleaf pines, to restore the habitat from pasture back to Florida forest. These new pines are tiny--they look more like large clumps of grass or needles. Because they are so small, they are easily crushed by feet or hooves that go off-trail and stomp on them.

These tiny pines grow down before they sprout up. During the grass stage, the longleaf pine starts to develop its central root, called a taproot, which will be up to 12 feet (3.7 meters) long at maturity. After going through the grass stage, longleaf pines begin to grow in height. Both mature trees and grass-stage specimens are fire-resistant. The lifespan of a longleaf pine spans several centuries. These slow-growing trees live for over 300 years, and they may take up to half that time to reach their full size.

So please help us save the pines by staying on our trails!
