Horseback riding is the featured activity at Southern Cross. Horseback rides are scheduled twice daily, 7 days a week. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry ' riding lessons are available and horses are personally assigned based on your riding experience and preferences. We’ll supply all the equipment you’ll need to ride, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you choose. OUr relaxed riding program even allows guests the unique opportunity to ride on their own if they desire, but small guided groups are always available. You’ll be encouraged to groom and help tack the horses for a true hands-on and bonding experience. Whether you want to ride lazily across beautiful open pastures, or trot through lush wooded trails, Southern Cross Ranch can accommodate your needs. And if you feel up to the challenge, they offer an optional 9+ mile trail ride at nearby Hard Labor Creek State Park for an additional fee.
