Arnett’s Gulfside Farm & Stables

Have you ever wanted to do something totally different on your 30A beach vacation, something that doesn’t involve the sand or water? How about a peaceful, tranquil trail ride on horseback? 30A horseback riding is possible! Just one-half mile from Scenic Highway 30A and very close to the beach, is Arnett’s Gulfside Farm & Stables in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. This 20-acre horse ranch offers trail rides, stables and boarding, event hosting, parties and camping. It adjoins the Point Washington State Forest, which boasts 13,800 beautifully wooded acres.

One-hour trail rides are available for $50 and include a short riding instruction to familiarize you with their horses, and private rides and lessons start at $70 per hour. Group lessons are also available at a rate for $450 for 10 people.

Check out their Facebook page for concerts and events; you never know what local or Nashville musician may show up to play; it’s been known to happen!

And who doesn’t like a miniature donkey? Meet Frank, their friendly 20-year-old mascot who loves to roam the farm, greet guests, and roll in the hay, delighting kids and adults alike!

How about hosting a birthday party? Kids of all ages can enjoy the farm with pony rides, inflatable jump houses, and much more. Upon request, Arnett’s will even provide the food, cake, decorations, etc.

Do you just love horses and being on a farm? Are you looking for a rustic wedding venue? Arnett’s has a tack room and working horse barn that provides unique spaces for weddings and receptions. The tack room, a rustic indoor space, can accommodate up to 150 people, a band, and space for catering. It has plenty of parking to boot and even has a wraparound porch overlooking the horses in the pasture. Does it get any better than this?
