Fun, affordable, trail rides
Only an hour and a half drive from Melbourne, Ryders Horse Riding Tours offers city dwellers a chance to escape the concrete hustle bustle and enjoy a serene horse ride through Australian bushland.

Ryders Horse Riding Tours offers a variety of fully guided tours including 1 hour basic ride, 2 or 3 hour ride with opportunities to trot and canter, and a ride and winery package where riders can enjoy wine tastings at nearby Gypsy Creek Winery. Tours run 7 days a week, departing at 10am, 12.30pm and 2pm, and cater for all levels of experience. Keep an eye out on the website for new packages and a soon to be introduced overnight ride for those wanting a real adventure!

Safety being paramount, each rider is provided with a helmet at the start of the tour, and instructed on the basics of horse riding: mounting, starting, stopping, steering, down- and up-hill riding, and rising trot, before and during the ride.

A horse is selected for each rider, based on size and riding ability. The well-trained horses then follow the lead in orderly fashion, meandering their way through a marked trail through bushland within Bunyip State Park.

The 1 hour trail ride is perfect for beginners and families who want a short and relaxing ride, with a brief opportunity to trot. Groups of 2 to 15 are guided by an experienced guide in the lead, and one at the rear of the group, assuring a pleasant and safe ride.
