This is the only place in the world you can do this adventure activity. You don't need to love horses, but you do need to want to try something new and experience the thrill of going racing.
Our dual sulky allows you to experience first hand what it is like to be in control of a famous race horse.
You will start the activity by learning about your horse, how to gear them up yourself, then out onto the track for some serious racing. We race to WIN.
Once the racing is over it is back into the barn to un-gear and wash down your horse. We then take time to celebrate your win or maybe your second placing with some bubbles or a nice brew on a cold day. The team at Horsepower are all experienced in race driving and are happy to pass on their knowledge of the sport so you will leave understanding why they love what they do.
From the city centre travel to Memorial Avenue, continue to the intersection of Russley Road and Memorial Avenue and turn left onto Russley Road. Our property is located at the corner of Russley Road and Yaldhurst Road, just before the Caltex petrol station. Our entrance is off Russley Road.
