Although we were running late, we had a wonderful experience. All Horses are absolutely Beautiful and the ladies that work here are all really lovely and seem very confident and experienced. Would definitely love to do this again!

We couldn't recommend Horseback Winery Tours more highly. We were blown away by how much care goes into the welfare of the horses which are treated with respect and kindness. The staff were professional and great fun. We had such a perfect day taken care of by a well managed and quality company. So much fun !

Visited the cellar door at Horseback Winery Tour Centre, and were impressed with the Prince Hollow wines that we sampled. The cellar door overlooks a horse training area, and stables. The staff were very friendly and provided good advice on other wineries to visit. The horseback tour option is a different way to see the countryside and sample the wines... More

Perfect Sunday morning ride with my 14yr daughter. Even though it was a winery tour, she was catered for and looked after accordingly. Horses were matched to rider with perfection which made for a pleasant experience for all involved. Experienced guides made the ride for my daughter (Beginner) a positive one, she developed confidence and felt safe. I applaud the... More

Staff were very friendly and caring, my partner and I had never been horse riding before and they made sure we felt comfortable. It is very well organised and the ride is enjoyable! Highly recommended and we plan to do another horseback tour!

Was a great morning out and a fantastic way to explore the Mornington Peninsular. I would not recommend this trip, if you are wanting to straddle the back of a horse and canter into the sunset, but if you’re keen for a leisurely ride, with the occasional trot, listening to nature, taking in the fresh produce and entrepreneurial aspect of...

We were thrilled to enjoy an outstanding experience, stepping into exceptional facilities and guided by absolute 'safety mindset' staff who nurtured our 4 adults/4 children group through the 3-hour experience. What wonderful memories we can share for a long time to come. The entire team from equine-guides to in-house cellar door staff were welcoming and the utmost professionals. This crew... More

Unique property with the best stable set up I've seen. Full equine centre with well tempered horses and staff. Only my wife rode today but I met her along the way at the various stops and enjoyed the tasting included in this trip. If you are going horse riding on any level you are well catered for here. And if... More

The 3h ride was really disappointing. Majority of the ride was not scenic at all except going through some mud trails. The entire area was supposed to be scenic but we did not go through any parts at all. Throughout the journey, we were going at really grandma speed and aligning our horses even if the horses were to be... More

Dear Ammiel, Thank you for your review, we aim to give first class customer service absolutely each and every time. We are disappointed to hear that you found your experience underwhelming. Riding behind you was your young family who were very nervous and quite unstable on the ride. On the form our customers fill out before the ride one member... More
