Magical river, bush and beach treks with rides to suit all abilities.

We have 7 beautiful, well mannered horses. Six are Clydsedale x Thoroughbred and one is a purebred Morgan - all have wonderful personalities!

Our treks are in small groups, so you get more personal attention and helpful riding tips for those less confident. Especially nervous riders and children (10+) can have their horse led on a lead rope by one of our guides. We vary the rides to suit your ability. Generally beginners ride for one hour along the rivers edge and through bush tracks, having lots of fun! The two hour ride can also cater to beginners but is aimed at the more experienced. This ride follows the a lot of the same tracks but includes a trot over the sand dunes to the beach, where confident riders can have a canter. Bring your camera along as we stop at various picturesque spots and can take photos of you to remind you of your day. We supply helmets, gloves and wet weather gear.

If you love the outdoors, some good company and a great ride, please get in touch!

Note: Limit of 5 people each ride.
