    Great experience

    Both of us are novice riders, Vanessa, was very friendly, helpful and patient, after giving us the safety chat and showing us how to get on and off the horses, we got on and started our adventure. There are 2 rides, we went on just the beach one, after getting used to the motion of the horse, it was an amazing experience. I would advise that you wear jeans, because the stirrup straps can dig in to bare legs

    Fantastic. Loved it

    Very good. Well run. Wear trousers as the gauze brushes are a bit over grown and scratch you.

    Nice ride

    Lovely staff and it was a really nice day all around. This ride is definitely for beginners and you don't get to do a lot of trotting or canters (about 1 min of trotting 3 or 4 times on the ride). Beach was lovely, took my younger sister (12 Yr old) and she really enjoyed the ride, think it's the perfect one for first time riders! If you want to do more trotting or cantering I would recommend booking a more advanced trek (staff recommend the 2 hour ride)

    Awesome ride

    Adele was our host and she introduced us to the horses, all of them where lovely. The ride took us our through the sand dunes onto a beach where the views where phenomenal. I did come off and Adele helped my very unfit frame get back into the saddle. We then went back through the dunes surrounded by wild flowers into pampas grass taller then we sat and scrub, the ride was finished off with a meander through forest then to the home paddock. The beach part of this ride was magic. Thanks Adele for your care and help during our time with you. Regards Kylie, Bindi and Tilly.
