Morning and Afternoon Two Hour Rides at 9am and 3pm
Our tours run from 9am and 3pm, both tours start at the ranch with an introduction to horse riding and basic instruction to understand how to ask your horse to go, turn and stop. Then the fun begins, the tour is through native bush with creek crossings in the wet season down to horseshoe bay. Then along the beach where we stop, get down to our swimmers, and ride the horses bareback into the sea before drying off, hopping back on and heading back to the ranch. Each tour takes approximately two hours depending on the speed and size of the ride.
Every tour is run by at least two experienced guides who are there to help you with your horses. This means that each rider can go at their own pace with no pressure to go any faster than they wish. Those riders with more experience will have the opportunity to trot and canter if they are getting on well with their horses, while those who would like a more relaxed pace can walk if they wish.
What to bring
- Long comfortable trousers to protect your legs
- Closed in shoes ( no thongs)
- Swimmers underneath your clothes if you wish to ride your horse in the sea
- A small water bottle
- A small towel if required
- A camera
- A smile and sense of fun
