Great ride

Did the 3 hr ride last Monday with my daughter. My daughter and I thought it was the best ride we have ever been on. Lovely horses and very helpful guides.

We recently did a 2 hour ride, the expectation was quite high. I am an intermediate rider these days having grown up with my own horses. We arrived at 8am for an 0830 start, we got going at 1030 due to a family of inexperienced riders who needed a lot of attention. Enter the leader of the group, from Germany... More

Thanks Andrea, I have spoken to all staff whom were on your ride that day and they didn't feel bullied of uncomfortable, but having said that I chatted to the staff person you mentioned and she apologised if she offended you both. Our teM are trained to help teach our riders and can sometimes be quite a challenge. Our staff... More

I'm writing this review a few months late (I'm hopeless with the review thing sometimes), but I felt compelled to put pen to paper so to speak - but the excitement is still just as strong as I relive my amazing overnight stay and 1/2 day ride care of the wonderful Baird family & staff. A short notice business trip... More

My wife and I did a half day trail ride and truly enjoyed our time on the horses. We are not very experienced riders but were motivated by the tour guide to trot and cantor. It was great fun and the horses we got were very responsive and gently. The family crew owning this place really set standards of what... More

We had a wonderful two hour horse ride recently after a recommendation from friends. My husband and I and our 10 yr old twin daughters absolutely loved every minute of it. This is a family run business, obviously very experienced horsemen and women, the staff are amazing, the horses great and the countryside beautiful. Even the coffee was great. Will... More

The ride was fun, but I did not like the looking of my horse at all. It really look like a cow with all of the white dot on its body. I have asked the staff twice to change a horse but they said no. At that time I was too embarrassed to say no as all of other people... More

This is a family owned & operated business, built from the ground up. They really love horses & train them for 6 years before allowing a customer to ride them. Our family did the 2 hour trail ride, great value because it actually was over 3 hours. Our guides spent time teaching us the basics to ride correctly & we... More

My partner and I stayed for a weekend with the Baird family, and greatly enjoyed our time there. Our ride was a full-day one on the Saturday of our stay, and lasted for about six, maybe seven hours all up. We agree with the reviewer who recommends that beginners not try this, but only insofar as the second portion of... More
