Iam an experienced, horse owning rider from Australia but decided to go with Ride of the Rings with my equally experienced friend because we wanted to see the locations from LOTR and thought it would be more relaxing.
Great drive out to Glenorchy, informative commentary. My friend and I had our own breeches and boots which we were glad of,helmets were provided.
I did not mind what sort of horse I had as Iam experienced, ended up riding a lovely old boy called Red. Was nice to be on a quiet horse, as Iam used to my own!
The scenery is amazing and you can see so many sights from the films. Guides Megan and Amanda were fabulous, really made the trip fun.
They showed us where the Hobbit had been filmed recently along with numerous other movies.
Was a bit over cast the morning we went but still enjoyable and relaxing. I got along really well with my horse and ended up buying my photo from the top of the hill.
All the horses were in fabulous condition and was great to see that as soon as we had finished our ride, the girls gave them all feeds!
Quite pricey, do think about what you want (faster paced ride or just a chilled out one) before you book :)
