Contact, bookings & prices

Your first visit

If you are a first time rider at our mountain trail course, in order to make sure you will be safe, there are two options to choose from. You must bring your own horse. We do not offer horses for hire. Both options include a short introduction briefing where you will learn how to get the best from the course.

  1. All new riders can join us at a monthly ‘come and try’ day for a 2 hour session with supervision. We run these days every month. Email us to find out about the next date. Cost: $40 for two hours per horse/rider.
  2. All new riders can book to ride the course for the first time (for you or a group of friends) for the course fee plus induction fee. We will explain how to ride the course and what you need to know about the course to have fun with your horse. Cost: $70 for two hours per horse/rider, minimum 2 horses.

All new riders must do one of the two options above.
