If you're looking to get back in touch with nature, you can explore the scenic views of the Sunshine State by horseback. Beneath canopies of palm trees and through secret trails, you and your trusty steed will go places others only dream of. And right now, you can take enchanting Florida horse rides at Obloy Family Ranch for half the regular price thanks to a Groupon deal.
This 45-minute trail ride for one person is usually $40, but the Groupon cuts it down to just $25. If you’re looking to go with a friend or a group, a ride for two that would normally cost $80, is $45.
The Groupon expires after 120 days, so don’t wait too long to book your horseback ride, and remember that the farm is closed on Sundays and holidays.
If the weather isn’t favorable, your ride will be rescheduled. You’ll also want to be sure you wear closed-toed shoes and bring some bug spray.
Additionally, you should definitely plan a little extra time to explore the ranch. There are tons of things to do here, with 36 acres worth of adventure.
Get all the fuzzy cuddles at the petting zoo, take a thrilling ride through the woods, and go mudding on a monster truck, or even rent one of their picturesque farm cabins to stay the night.
Located on Merritt Island, the Obloy family transformed the property their farm now sits on into a wildlife sanctuary in 2015. They kept the old gator ranch to educate visitors and added it to the sanctuary.
The animals that call the farm home — ranging from cows and baby goats to camels and lemurs — are all rescues, and you can feed them at the petting zoo for $15.
There are three different rustic and adorable cabins to choose from if you want to stay the night. They sleep up to 6 guests, have climate control, a full kitchen and full bathroom, TV, Wi-Fi, an indoor fireplace, and amazing views of the farm.
You can rent the cabins for $149 a night and guests receive complimentary petting zoo tour tickets.
The farm also offers the perfect setting for a rustic wedding, with a massive barn and winery perfect for would-be weddings or parties.
The Obloy Family Farm is open Monday through Saturday and does not take reservations, so it’s a first-come, first-serve kind of adventure!
