We are blessed to be located in an area unlike anywhere in the country with so many options for horseback riding. In the greater Marion County area we have:
Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, better know locally as The Greenway. There are many trail heads including Santos, Landbridge, 49th St, Shangri-la, Ross Prairie, and Pruitt. The trail system is a left over of the Cross Florida Barge Canal project that originally planned on giving ships a way to cross from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic. It was shelved when they determined that it would cost Florida its fresh water supply and was turned into a multi-purpose recreational mecca for horseback riders, hikers and bikers. Each section has features found no where else.
