Several horseback riding trails located on properties owned by the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) have been featured in a statewide equestrian guide.
Florida Equestrian Trails, A Guide to Florida’s Top Equestrian Trails highlights more than 30 riding trails located on public and private lands throughout Florida.
The SRWMD properties included in the publication are the R.O. Ranch Equestrian Park, the Mattair Springs Tract and Devil’s Hammock Wildlife Management Area. The three properties located in Lafayette, Suwannee and Levy counties respectively provide some of the best trail riding opportunities in the SRWMD. The brochure was produced by Visit Florida. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Greenways & Trails and Division of Recreation and Parks facilitated production of the guide. Copies have been distributed to parks and trails throughout the state. “We are pleased to be recognized for our riding trails,” said Edwin McCook, land management specialist for SRWMD. “It is our hope that the publication will encourage more people to take advantage of our public lands.”
