they have had problems with the tracks getting muddy so we were unable to do the full days ride. other than that very good. going out in the sea on the horses was a real treat.

We went for a 1/2 day afternoon trail ride with Horseshoe Bay Ranch and it was awesome. Once we got to the beach we unsaddled our horse and rode them bare back along the beach and then into the ocean. The horses just loved the water and started swimming while we were riding them. This is an event I would recommend for all ages. One of our highlights on our 6 week vacation to Australia.

This ride goes through spectacular scenery and ends with a chance that is (probably) unique in Oz – the opportunity to try out some bareback riding on the beach and in the ocean itself!
The horses are very quiet and ideal for novice or total newbies to riding. There is a good ratio of guides to riders (usually at least 1 to 5) so even the most nervous riders will have someone nearby to reassure them.
More experienced riders (like me) might find the slow pace a bit frustrating at times but the views are spectacular and the ride in the ocean makes sticking to a trot worthwhile. The horses and tack are in wonderful condition. Just be warned that several of the horses are so well used to the route that they will ignore any instructions from you unless they are pretty firmly put!
