We focus heavily on the individual needs of our clients, providing a unique and memorable experience. We have tiered options within the riding packages offering set bundles of riding time. The bundles are approximate riding times and some options within the packages are just under or just over the set bundle time. You pay only for the rides you take so you will not be charged extra/less if the bundle times run over/under on your chosen package option. We cater to individuals, couples, small groups & families with children. Experienced riders and total beginners who have never ridden before are all welcome and we will tailor the itineraries to suit your riding level and preference. We offer riding packages that the whole family can enjoy. Parents can participate in all or just some of the riding activities and the whole family can enjoy learning together. We have a huge selection of itineraries ensuring there is a package to suit everyone. If you can’t find a package in our sample itineraries then contact us and we will create a personalized itinerary just for you. Trek group sizes will never exceed more than five riders at any one time ensuring maximum safety and a personal touch.There are plenty of different trek routes to experience and we can alter trails to suit different riding abilities. On a riding holiday with us you will ride on different trek routes each time keeping every riding experience fresh and exiting. We will go over the routes with you when we are planning your holiday together with you and we will include the routes you would like to go on into your personalized itinerary. If you choose a package with riding lessons we can teach you to ride a horse or you can focus on improving your existing riding skills in a flat or jumping lesson. Our arena is equipped with jumps, caveletti, & poles and with its stunning mountain back drop it really is the perfect place to learn.
