JD Trail Riding

David and Jo Harrington are a couple of computer geeks from Texas that have taken up camping and trail riding in the last 6 years. My love has always been horses and David's is computer technology and John Deere tractors. We got into this business because we both love being in the outdoors and it brings us closer to all the things we enjoy, including visiting old friends and making new ones.

We have 4 daughters, 2 grandchildren, 5 dogs, 4 cats, 1 Quaker parrot, 2 horses, and my mom, as you will get to know her as "Mrs. Ellie". She retired several years ago and now shares all the responsiblity of this brood we have. She keeps us all straight.

We hope you will come to visit with us and enjoy your stay here at J-D Trail Riding Camp as much as we will love living here.

We provide well marked trails through the woods, across and along creeks, up mountain sides and old logging roads to some of the most beautiful views of the Kiamichi Mountains by horse back or hiking.

Adventure Riding

Fiddle Leaf Farm, located south of Ocala, Florida, is exclusively designed to train, breed and sell the finest Paso Fino horses.

"Our philosophy is to educate and develop the natural ability of the Paso Fino," Cathie Siemer, owner of Fiddle Leaf says. "We train to achieve a partnership between the horse and rider. We want our horses to be very competitive, not just when the trainer is competing on the horse, but we want the owner to be able to enjoy riding as well."

Cathie demonstrates the enjoyment of riding on her Paso as shown here where she is riding with the Star Dust drill team, of which Cathie is a founder.

Fiddle Leaf Farm is developing 14 to 15 hand Paso Finos while retaining the refinements of the smaller Pasos. The beauty of the Paso Fino and the fun of the Latin culture surrounding it in America have made Cathie and Mike Siemer, along with their trainer, enthusiastic in pursuing the development of the Farm.

"We are more than a first-class Paso Fino training facility, breeding competitive show horses, we also offer schooling for new riders and horses for people interested in pleasure riding or other competitive events such as team penning or endurance riding," Mrs. Siemer says. The Siemers, including son Daryl (at right) are strong believers in the wellbeing of both humans and horses. In conjunction with breeding quality Paso Finos, their plans include the development of a wellness program that promotes physical fitness and mental wellbeing through the experience of riding their Paso Finos.

"Horseback riding has long been considered an excellent way to develop physical fitness and self confidence," Cathie says. "Riding our Paso Finos will allow the beginning rider to enjoy the versatility of our Paso Finos if they wish to pursue more competitive events."

The exciting Paso Finos offered by Fiddle Leaf Farm can be found in many regional and national horse shows competing in Bella Forma, which means beautiful form in Spanish; in Performance classes which allow riders to demonstrate the Paso walk, corto and largo; and in Classic Fino which spectators have named "rolling thunder," across the Fino strip.

The Paso Fino is a gentle, loving, elegant yet fiery horse; but it is more than just a show horse. You will find riders of Fiddle Leaf Farm Pasos enjoying the beauty of a country lane, taking part in a drill team exhibition, a team penning event, and even Christmas caroling for their neighbors by Paso.

Adventure Trail Riding is located in the heart of Florida Horse Country. There are tens of thousands of acres of Florida wilderness specifically designated for horses. The trails range in difficulty from the easy scenic trail for the first timer who wants to get out and enjoy the Florida wilds, all the way to the extremely technical. If you can ride it, we ride it. The rides last anywhere from 3½ to 4½ hours depending on how hard we push the horses. At Adventure Trail Riding, the only thing more important then you having the best trail ride of your life is the well being of the horses.

Stardust is a Paso Fino precision drill team made up of 14 women, all riding matching spritied Paso Fino horses. The team has been performing for more than two years, with their first performance in 1995 at Spectrum in Tampa. Since then they have been asked to perform from Florida to New York, from breed horse shows to the biggest equestrian event in the country...Equitana in 1996 in Louisville, Kentucky. They are the only drill team to be invited back for Equitana's 1997 Mane Event.

At Equitana they perform before 20,000 people each evening, as well as demonstrations daily. They have performed at the Pegasus Parade for the Kentucky Derby; the Equine Affaire in Colombus, Ohio; and the Great Circus Parade in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. National coverage for these events will bring Stardust to millions of television viewers!

Stardust practices every week at Fiddle Leaf Farms, Ocala, Florida. For more information about Stardust or to schedule the team to perform for your event, call Cathie Siemer at (352) 245-4715. Catch the Paso Fino Passion!

Tour Description

June 9th arrive San Jose Costa Rica at 7:50. Clear Customs, Head over to the Herradura Hotel for the night there is a Casino in the hotel. I don't know if I was just on or the odds were better but I won $200.00 last year!

June 10 th- 5:30am wake up call. This is the only day we have to get up so early. A bus will pick us up at the Herradura and take us to the Pacuare River for some absolutely awesome river rafting. Breakfast and Lunch is included. At the take out point there is a cool little bar right on the river were we can grab some beers and recount the days adventure. The bus will take us back to the Herradura and for the diehards there is still more gambling to be done.

June 11 th- Our private bus will pick us up for a beautiful drive to the Tabacon Resort- Spa. We will spend two nights at the Tabacon were we will ride horses up the Volcano Arenal. Costa Rica's most active volcano. You will also have time to relax in the hot springs. Get a massage, face mask and basically lounge around like a fat cat American. At the swim up bar they make a mean Guaro Y Fresa. A local drink I don't know what is in it but it is definitely a personal favorite. Breakfast and Lunch is included at the Tabacon Resort

June 13th- We head to the Guanacaste region. The change in topography is amazing You go from a rain forest to a desert by the sea in four hours. We will be staying at the beautiful El Ocotal. This area is known for deep sea fishing and scuba diving. I could not include those activities in the price but I have found once you are there you are able to negotiate some really awesome deals with the locals. If you are not up for that you can do some great snorkeling right in front of the hotel. You can bring your own snorkeling equipment or rental equipment is included in the price but the equipment is not that good. The Ocotal has some of the most beautiful views. Every Cabana over looks the ocean.

June 15 th-June 17th We head down to Jaco Beach Resort. If you are not partied out by this time this is where the real parties kick in. Jaco has some of the most consistent waves for surfing anywhere in the world. There are plenty of places to rent surfboards. They may be a little bit more beat up then what you are used to but it beats carrying one around for 10 days. Something new we added this year is Tree Top Tours or canopy tours. This is where you get your own harness and slide on cable from tree to tree 80 feet in the air. I haven't done it yet but saw it on the discovery channel it looks like a blast. The way this got started is a botanist discovered whole separate eco system in the trees. They needed a way to study them and it took to long to climb down one tree and up the next so they started rigging cables and now it is one of Costa Rica's most popular adventures. The Tree Top Tours are in included in the price.

June 17th We head back to San Jose and the Herradura Hotel. You will have time to go site seeing in the capital I will give you some suggestions of fun place to go. Most people go to the artist district for a great dinner and people watching. This is also the best time to haggle with the locals and get some great souvenirs.

June 18th To the airport deal with customs, pay your $17.00 exit tax (you got me but you can't leave if you don't pay it) And back to Orlando. Just as an aside on all the drives we will stop at interesting little restaurants or tiki bars and because we have a local designated driver drinking,partying and excessive fun is heavily promoted.

Price based on departure from Orlando airport. Price will vary depending on your departure location.
