“Hunter in the Hunter valley ”

Hunter Valley Horseriding and Adventures
Reviewed 7 April 2018 via mobile

First things first our 5 year old Hunter got to ride his first horse Hunter in the Hunter valley
My family of 6 headed out for a 30 min trek as a treat on our holidays. Our daughter 8 attends a riding school back in Ireland.

Well we had a great time from the second we arrived. The trek ended up lasting about 50 minutes and as our guide led our 5 year old on his horse she kindly let our 8 year old lead the group as she noted she was a confident rider.

The trek terrain was nicely challenging for my older sons who had never been on a horse before and was so much better than riding on a flat track. We passed kangaroos on the way which was a bonus.

Thanks to our guide who was very knowledgeable about horses and also very passionate about the horses at the stables.

Three of us booked a last minute horse ride at 6pm for the next day at midday. We arrived not knowing to expect, Lee was great, we had the ride to ourselves and we said we would ideally like a trot or even a canter. As we were all fairly experienced Lee was happy for us to give it a go. The horses definitely had personalities and were happy to have a bit canter. We were there at a quiet time but it was an excellent ride and I would recommend it.

Having one nervous rider was always going to be a challenge, however, Leah was fantastic & all the ladies enjoyed their experience. Thankyou for keeping her reassured & comfortable.
Totally enjoyed my own ride on the awesome Axle! I will be bringing my family back to explore further afield.

Took out daughter (8years old) for her first ever horse ride to the these guys on the weekend. What an amazing place, she was the only one out on the ride and the guide walked her around the property for close to double the time we paid for. Amazing location, amazing horse, amazing staff. Highly recommend this place for all levels of horse riding. My daughter was made to feel extremely comfortable and was trotting with the horse by herself by the end. The Guide was amazing and made our daughter feel so special.

Will be back next time to boom even longer.

The girls wanted to go horse riding and this was the only one open at the time. We paid for a 1 hour ride and got about 30 minutes of riding. They didn't get to canter the horses. Unfortunately there was a huge family who wanted to take photos of each person sitting on the horses prior to our ride. This pushed our time futher back and we didn't get a full hour. The people are very friendly but they need to be sterner with people who aren't riding amd they should give you an hours ride when that's what you pay for.
