Very nice horse riding experience

It was my first time horse riding and the staff guided me well. They picked me up from the Franz Josef town so you don't need to worry even though you are travelling by bus not your car. The horse riding trail was very scenic with beautiful farmlands, mountains covered with snow. I could encounter cute animals of the farm while i am riding the horse and going through the forest was also very exciting. they kindly take photos of you riding on the horse if you bring your own camera. Though it was raining, the horse riding was carried on and it was fine cuz it was so beautiful in the rainy day also. Overall it was such a nice experience and i would definitely recommend.

Not enough saddle time

In hindsight we should have booked 2hr ride. With the one hour trip by the time we all got on our horses we probably only 'rode' for 30 minutes. Basically up the side of a paddock, through a very muddy thicket of trees and back the other side of the paddock. It was still 5 minutes before the hour was up and we were back in the car. It was spitting rain but don't think that affected the route we took. Definitely would recommend booking a longer session. Nice horses which appear well looked after. The kids had fun.

Wasn't amazing but it was fun!

The staff was very friendly but was a bit behind schedule when we arrived. The horses were very well behaved and you could tell they were used to having people ride them. The ride itself was very basic, but great for first time riders! I would definitely recommend it for people who want to give horseback riding a try!
