It's the cutest experience around!
You Can Actually Take A Mini Horse For A Walk At This Florida Ranch

No horsing around - there is actually a place in Florida where you can take a mini horse for a walk and it is one of the most adorable experiences ever. Soul Haven Ranch near Orlando offers the up-close and personal mini horse encounters for only $44 a person.

According to the information on Airbnb, the "My Time with a Miniature Horse" experience offers guests an hour to connect one-on-one with their designated horse. Your experience will begin in the barn grooming your mini, including brushing the mane, tail, body, and cleaning its hooves.

After, you will learn three basic commands - walk, whoa, and around, before being set free to roam the scenic ranch with your mini. 

"We guarantee your soul will be touched in a way that no one or no other animal can... immerse yourself in the experience and partnership that only a horse can create and share," their page says.

The horses are used for therapy and are well trained. Regardless, you will be required to sign a liability waiver before your experience starts so you are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes early. You are also encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and wear close-toed shoes. 

The ranch is located at 196 Tildenville School Rd. Winter Garden, FL 34787.
