Description

Cowboy Up Trail Riding offers you the experience to ride the 'Cowboy Way' on their friendly good natured Quarter Horses. In comfortable western saddles, you will have a relaxing ride through a working cattle property. Trails will take you through picturesque country where wallabies, wild deer and native birdlife thrive. From rolling hills you will witness magnificent views of surrounding mountains and farmland.

All rides are fully guided and you can choose from a one hour ride, two hour ride (includes coffee and cake), half day cattle muster or half day ride (includes light lunch). One of their specialities is the Sunset Ride which takes a couple or party of friends on a 45 minute ride then leaves them alone, with a bottle of sparkling wine and a cheese platter, to enjoy the sunset on their beautiful property before being picked up by vehicle and taken back to the homestead. A great way to propose or celebrate your anniversary!

Your hosts, Peter and Gill Gould have over 30 years experience with horses and are great teachers - particularly if you haven't ridden before or if you haven't ridden for a long time.

Bookings are essential.
