FAQ’s

Q: I’ve never ridden a horse – do you accommodate beginners?
A: Definitely – Our horses are well trained and all the trails are led by an experienced guide. All rides include a brief riding orientation, where we inform you on all the commands necessary for the trip. The guide is readily available throughout the ride should you need assistance. We can take nervous riders on a lead rein until they feel more comfortable.

Q: Can we ride out on our own, without a guide?
A: For safety reasons, all of our rides into the forests are guided.

Q: Do you have helmets?
A: Yes we have a selection of helmets available at no extra cost. It is compulsory that all riders wear a safety helmet.

Q: From what age can my child join on a horse ride?
A: We have taken children from 5 years old out on the trails, children must be able to sit unaided and be confident to sit on a horse.

Q: Can my child ride with me on my horse?
A: Unfortunately not, this will only be considered if the adult rider is extremely experienced..

Q: What should I wear?
A: We suggest wearing closed shoes that are secure to your feet simply so they won’t fall off during the ride. No flip flops or bare feet.  Avoid wearing very wide shoes so they don’t jam in the stirrups. We also suggest long comfortable pants without zips, buttons etc on the inner leg. Shorts are not recommended. Also, please keep in mind that you cannot carry anything loose like handbags. Backpacks are permitted but should not interfere with the riders ability to control / steer the horse . Be sure that all accessories are snug and fit securely. Cellular phones, cameras and action cameras are permitted but will be at the owners own risk to damage / loss during the ride.

Q: Do you offer private rides/tours?

A: Yes we do – We offer a honeymoon ride with chocolates and bubbly or just a fun ride with your best friend, and the guide. We can arrange a picnic or sunset/sunrise rides. Just let us know and we will arrange it!

Q: When is the best time to visit?
A: It is a pleasure to visit throughout the year. Summer months are from December to April, keep in mind that the days can be very hot for riding between December and March, which is why we like to make an early or late start. Whilst rainy days might cancel some days riding, we love the turn of the seasons and there is nothing quite like a sunshine winters day, the weather is cool and the country side covered in green, the spring flowers start appearing from July through to October.

Q: Do you offer riding instruction?
A: Yes, many of our guests find that they really start enjoying the horse ride more once they have some basics in place and return for a course of instruction. We also give lessons to those who would like to learn more than the basics.

Q: I am an experienced rider and do not want to walk the whole time do you offer an ‘experienced’ ride?
A: Yes, our horse trail rides are very scenic and the longer trails are through some challenging scenery. All our trails include trot and canter sections, ideal for the riders who like to feel the freedom of open spaces. If the rider/s are uncomfortable with the trot or canter the guide will keep it at a slow pace. We always adjust the speed of the ride to the slowest guest and as you will most likely be riding with other people, please do not overestimate your riding ability. We try to keep the novice and experienced riders on separate outings.

Q: What are your opening hours?

A: We are open 7 days a week throughout the year, weather permitting. Our trail times vary according to the season and we will confirm this with you at the time of booking. Please note all horse rides are by appointment.

Q: Do you have credit card facilities?
A: Unfortunately not, payment is cash only.
