Whether you're an avid competitor or just enjoy a relaxing afternoon of trail riding, Lake County is a paradise for both the professional and novice equestrian. No matter what your discipline, Lake County has it to offer; from world-renowned equestrian facilities for boarding and lessons to hundreds of miles of trails.
A must see for any enthusiast is the Florida Carriage Museum and resort in nearby Weirsdale. This 400 acre riding facility offers lodging, horse shows and carriage lessons with your horse or theirs. Central Florida is also the home of the Greater Orlando Hunter and Jumper Association, better known as the GOHJA, which offers a monthly horse show circuit and popular year end banquet.
