We booked online for the riding and they answered my questions very quickly, which i appreciate a lot. Our guide Slen is a lovely girl. Horses are very gentle and they follow each other in a line. So no worries on safety problem.

The riding was relaxed and easy. The horses just followed each other. Our guide Marie was lovely. There were photo opportunities. The equipment was of a high standard and the horses well looked after and not overworked. A lovely trail riding experience.

The most amazing experience. Had so much fun. Little experience needed - but please use common sense!! Travelled up to the valley to see a cradle mountain in the distance, some beautiful scenery. Very lovely guide who was very knowledgeable about the land/animals etc.

From the pickup from our accommodation in a very battered old car to the very bouncy track to the stables, you quickly see that this is not going to be some genteel park walk. This Vale of Belvoir ride is fairly rough through beautiful alpine...More

Had a fabulous time, can highly recommend this activity. Our guide Estelle was very friendly and informative. Added bonus, her partner Oliver videotaped us riding the bike. It was lovely to meet them, the scenery was beautiful.
