Safari from the Saddle

Have you ever wanted to experience White Oak from a different point of view? Sure, the trolleys and vans are a nice way to get around here, but what about by horseback? We’ll pack our saddle bags and you can enjoy exploring White Oak mounted on one of our seasoned guest horses.

Spend a few hours with our experienced guides as you ride through manicured trails, as well as pass by a number of endangered and threatened species. Take a break from your ride to have lunch at the River Outpost overlooking the St. Marys River. After lunch, take a short ride back to the Stable and finish your visit by getting up close and personal with one of our exotic species, while speaking with one of our animal experts.
