MEET OUR HORSES
Our horses are loved and cared for as part of our family, this makes them happy, friendly and sometimes a little cheeky, but definitely the best horses you will ever meet. We have guidelines to ensure both horse and rider are safe and to ensure everyone has a wonderful experience. For this reason, when booking a ride there are questions we ask every guest, including height, weight, age and riding experience. With this information we do our best to match the perfect horse to each person’s needs. We are happy to discuss this with you and to explain our choices and a little about the horse you will be riding. If you have any questions please feel free to phone us.
Age and Weight Guidelines – For the safety of our horses and guests we follow the industry standard of a 95kg weight limit and an age limit of 10 years and over. For those under 10 without extensive riding experience, we can arrange private or led rides to cater to the individual’s needs.
Frequently asked questions
Are the horses responsive? – If you are a rider, you will love how light, responsive and well behaved our horses are. We have had a number of competitive riders joining us, and have all been very impressed. We regularly get comments on how healthy, well mannered and trained our horses are, and how good the equipment is.
Are the horses calm? – The horses are very quiet and suitable for beginners, yet still enjoyable for experienced riders. We have also had an 18 year old young lady (experienced rider) on our ride who was 100% blind.
What sort of saddles do you use? – We use predominantly Winning Edge saddles. These are custom made ‘Swinging Fender’ saddles, and are used by Australia’s top riders. We regularly get positive comments from our guests about our saddles, even from those unused the this type of saddle.
