Wonderful Experience

My wife and I had the most enjoyable time. I got to ride Dusty, the leader of the pack 🙂 Thank you to the team. Would definitely recommend for those wanting to experience horse riding. We were both beginners but felt at ease throughout the ride.

Awesome

My partner and I did the 2 hour bourse ride which was so worth it! My partner hasn’t been riding before so this was the perfect tract for him. The staff were also so lovely and kind they made you feel so welcome. I e been riding a couple times and the horse I had was my favourite she was so sweet. I would 100 percent go again. The track itself is ok there’s two bits where you go through the the bush which is great!
