    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures, around an hour’s drive from Sydney. After meeting your instructor, you’ll be introduced to the club’s equine residents and matched with a suitable horse – there are 200 horses of a variety of breeds, sizes, and temperaments, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect partner, even if you’re a complete beginner.

    Before heading out on the trails, enjoy time to get to know your horse, and learn the basics of stopping and steering under the guidance of an expert instructor. Rides are tailored to the group’s level, so you might enjoy a leisurely ride through the countryside, soaking up the scenery and spotting local wildlife, or for more experienced riders, have chance to trot, canter, or tackle more challenging terrain.

    For riders with suitable experience, it may even be possible to enjoy free-range riding and explore the private ranch independently (levels are assessed by the Yard Manager on the day, but a rough guide is riders who have ridden at least 50 times).

    After safely returning to the stables and bidding your horse farewell, your tour finishes back at the Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures center.

    The riding trails are absolutely lovely with fantastic, calm and knowledgeable staff. They match you to your horse based on your size, confidence and riding ability. All the horses are very well trained and know the drill, perfect for all abilities. I also camped at Glenworth

    We really enjoyed our trail ride at Glenworth Valley! I am a fairly experienced casual rider but my husband is a total beginner, and we both had such an enjoyable time. Our trail leader (Tayla/Taylor?) was friendly and managed our group so well that the experienced riders got to

    Hi Felicia, thank you so much for sharing this amazing feedback with us. WOW...what an accomplishment for your husband to work his way up, in the one ride, to be able to canter. Some of our office staff (including myself) are beginner riders and you are absolutely correct...our wonderful guides do a great job at catering for all experiences levels and giving us the knowledge and confidence to learn and experience new skills. Taylor is an exceptional guide, as are all of our lovely horse staff, and she will be thrilled to know that she had such a fantastic impact on your ride. I will be sure to pass this feedback on. We look forward to welcoming you and your husband back to Glenworth Valley very soon for another amazing ride in the valley.

    Hi Annie, Thank you for sharing feedback of your recent visit with us. We could not ask for a better review. We are delighted to hear that you had a great time along with the other families you stayed with. We are a family owned business and 'making family memories' is at the very core of what we do. I will pass your kind words on to Hayley (and Channel) who will both be thrilled to know they contributed to a wonderful ride for you. It's important to us that we establish a great match between horse and rider right from the onset. Also great to hear your family got to experience some of our other activities and also had a wonderful time. We can't wait to welcome you back to Glenworth Valley soon.

    My partner and I spent a lovely morning taking a 2 hour horse ride with guide American Sarah and the fantastic volunteers. I was hooked up with a beautiful horse called Horus while my partner was paired with Uluru (and yep he was red). While I have little to no real horse riding

    Hi Lynda-Jane, Thank you for sharing feedback from your recent trail ride with us. It is really important to us that we establish the perfect relationship between horse and rider from the onset. A big part of this process is our senior horse managers allocating a horse to suit each individual riding experience and ability level. With over 200 horses to choose from we have a horse to suit any rider. Congratulations on achieving the rising trot technique. It is particularly important on trail rides and you should feel very proud. We hope to welcome you back to Glenworth Valley soon so your newfound skill does not go to waste. Perhaps it won't be too long before you are riding with the more experienced riders of the group.
