What to expect:
When you arrive at our beautiful farm you will receive a warm welcome from our friendly staff and farm animals (especially the dogs) and will made to feel right at home. Staff will explain the compulsory Acknowledgment of Risk form to you and discuss the plan for your tour, before helping you to fit your hat and get you ready to go.
Before we leave, all customers will watch a short safety briefing on the TV together. This briefing will contain all the things you’ll need to know to keep safe and have fun whilst out on tour, with everything from how to sit in your saddle to what to do when your horse needs the toilet!
Your tour guide will choose the most suitable horse for your size and ability and once the horses are prepared you will be assisted on to your new friend for the day. We will then set off into the beautiful surroundings and enjoy 1.5 hours of mountains, rainforest, paddocks and rivers (be prepared to get a little wet!).
On returning to the farm, you will be safely helped off your horse. You will then take a seat in our restaurant area and help yourself to variety of snacks and drink whilst being able to view the fantastic pictures taken by our professional photographer on your ride.

Feel free to bring along your camera to the farm as we will happily take some snaps of you and your horse for you, and we’re sure you’ll want to capture the scenery shots too. Although we are unable to take any cameras or phones out on tour with us, we can certainly take some pictures before we leave and once we return back to the farm.

You are welcome to store your camera and any other valuables in a safety box provided whilst we are away from the farm.
