There is only one comment that can be made about Corey,Tina and Makin Tracks Trail Rides and that is AWESOME. We just took our twins for their birthday to swim with the horses and had a great time. Corey kept us entertain throughout the ride with his knowledge of the forest and its history. Thank you for a wonderful time.

So pleased that I had the chance to stop by and say hello. You have a very nicely assembled website. Just goes to show what hard work and dedication to a project does. It eventually pays off. Good job!

Ive had horses since I was 15, ridden and competed all over florida and just didnt know you guys were here until kayaking last weekend came upon you at the swing and campsite..I wish I could post you on my website..people are always asking me to we have barrel horses and they arent for inexperienced riders..NOW I know where to send them in the summer as its so hot without the water cool daown..

Cudos to your hearts for taking care of older horses and horses down in condition and fixing their problems...To me horses are as smart, sometimes smarter than dogs and people dont realize it..thinking horses are like cows...I was devistated by the horsemeat industry that has been being approved..have you been aware of this? And maybe you should have a place on your site just for people to donate to a good you people sure deserve it!   Good to see good people doing great things with horses who need some extra TLC!!!!!

This was the best-ever horseback riding adventure, not because of the awesome views on a mountain in Wyoming or theexcitement of a ride on the beach near Bodega Bay, but because Corey taught usin just two short hours, how to commune with our horse and how to protect ourselves from the unexpected on the trail and gave great yarns and Florida history as he talked non-stop from the bottom of his heart.  We had the best fun - incredible - given our individual and varied issues, from grandma with problem knees and poor muscular leg strength to daring and ready to fly 11-yr. old granddaughter, to her mommy the very good rider but with a bad back and to "just go for it"daddy! Corey made everything we each wanted do-able!  Can't wait to return to swim with the horses or other ride.

We went around December of 2012. This was truly an experience! I was so happy that they allowed our dog to go on the trail with us. Cory is an exceptional person with so much knowledge on horses. As a horse owner and experienced rider I was so impressed and moved by the love and care they give these beautiful horses. We had the best time and so did our dog! Best guided trail I've had hands down (and I've been on many). We hope to come back in the spring and do an all day ride!

:D LOVEEEEE Makin' Tracks!!!! Everyone should book a trail ride! BEST around! The horses are very well taken care of and the owners and family were amazing. Hearts pure as gold!! My friend and I took a two hour trail ride although it was a bit more water then expected but that just made the experience even more fun. I will be telling everyone about this place! Donate as well! All the money goes directly to the horses and rescue! <3

We took the 3 hour River Ride on Aug 15, 2012. It was money well spent. I have taken trail rides in Vegas & the Poconos and this was the best by far. Thanks Corey for being such a great tour guide. The horses were great. We will be back to do the moon light ride. You guys ROCK!!! Niki, Whitney & Riley

i will never forget this day!

we did the 3-hour-ride and swam in the river with the horses. it was unbelievable! Corey and Tina are super nice people who love their horses and take great care of them. real horse(wo)men! we were riding through the woods, eating huckleberries, blueberries and learned a lot about nature. Corey is a great, great tour guide, who shares his passion for nature and horses and always has a joke on his lips. our 2-year-old son was always frightened about horses, but as soon as he sat in the saddle with mommy, he was fine! and the horses are absolutely amazing! so beautiful and well trained, no child needs to be scared. we did this for my birthday and it was the best birthday present ever!!! i want to come back and do the overnight-ride. can't wait!!!

THANK YOU Tina and Corey for an unforgettable day!!!!(-:

OMG this is a must see/do in central Florida...DO NOT MISS the opportunity to swim with the horses. Corey was the absolute best at well just about everything. We learned alot about natural Florida and got to know our horses well during the 3 hours trip (one hour spent at the river swimming with and feeding the horses). Tina and Corey are WONDERFUL people who take great care of their animal I said MUST DO when visiting.

Thank you so much for all of your kind words. We hope to see you again on your next visit.

Thanks again for enjoying ride.

Tina and Cory,

I want to thank you for helping us create an experience for our family that we will never forget.  Our "three hour tour" turned out to be an adventure we never expected!  It's the highlight of this trip and one of the best experiences of my life.  I can't wait to see the pictures!! 

Mom's feelin sore but just thrilled that she went.  Sofia has placed swimming with Angie on the top of her list of the most fun things she's ever done.  We appreciate how hard you work for the horses and to ensure that all of us are comfortable and having a good time.  Sofia said "the next time we come up here, I want to go on that trip a bunch of times".  I'm hoping we can come back lots of times.  Sadie was such a trooper!  We truly enjoyed meeting you guys, the horses and Barbie.  Cory, Luis says to let him know about the boar. 

Wishing all of you lots of health, wealth and happiness,

Tina & Corey, You and the horses were the best birthday present ever!  I had the time of my life on the trail and in the water.  I'm amazed at how healthy and hearty the horses are after what some of them have been through!  Give my love to Bones, Angie and Bonnie, please and I will send you the pictures when I get home.

Thank you very munch for the terrific ride.

We didn't planed the whole stay in Ocala before we took the Plane to Boston. Among all the big and noisy citys we just wanted to spend some days in the vast of amerikas nature. These were the best days on the trip, the best days of my life. The trailride was kind of my dream comes true and for one of my friends a new dream she can't get out of her head anymore. 

We're now planning a road trip for next year or to save money to live on a farm in Florida someday for some years ....

Please don't stop what you're doing. Don't stop showing the people how to be a kind human being, how to respect each others, the animals and the whole nature around. Don't stop telling the horses there are some nice people out here.

Sure glad we met you'all.

We thank you so much for showing us your ranch and allowing us to camp.

Your trail ride/swim experience is something that should be experienced at least by all horse lovers.

We do look foreward in seeing you'all again soon. Espcially if you decide to try riding on the beach near New Smyrna.

Talk to you soon.
