Most amazing horse trek experience
Sophie_B

Such an amazing trek. The views were absolutely stunning and the horse riding was amazing. It’s so good for all skill levels, Kelly who guided us made those of us with minimal skill feel compete and safe and those on the trek who were quite experienced had so much fun too! It was such a great experience being able to tie up your horse outside the pub and go for a drink, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to do that again! Highly recommend this trip to everyone!!

Great horse ride

Lovely horse ride together. Loved the place they went as each rider had different riding experience. I loved the horses eating willow tree on the way home. John the horse likes to get your feet wet in the river with his high stepping. Great tour guide too Sam and I enjoyed this on our honeymoon

Guide was excellent and made sure we had the appropriate horse for our level of experience! The route we rode on was lovely and had good views of the Cadrona Valley!

Really nice tour with interesting...

Really nice tour with interesting info about the history of the area. Ally was great at talking to everyone and making them feel comfortable and matching them with a horse. There were 4 in our group: one had never been on a horse, one had only ridden twice, and the last two of us had a little bit of experience. Ally gave great instructions and made everyone feel comfortable and confident. We had a nice ride up into the hills with her giving us some interesting details about the area and history. The stop at the historic hotel was a nice break the cider was very refreshing, and then we finished with a canter back to the stables. Tip: There isn't any shade along the ride, so make sure to put on sun lotion!
