This was my first time horse riding but due to my daughter and the wonderful staff (and Victor the horse) Harties Horse Trail Safaris made it such a wonderful experience that I am already planning my next trip. Friendly staff, clean premises!

To ride horses in the Bush amongst the animals is always a unique experience. The whole experience is extremely well organised and the staff were tremendous. Thanks for the memories.
