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.
What to take: Wear long pants and enclosed shoes, bring sunscreen and a camera, and a waterproof jacket if rain is predicted.
Arrive: Arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled ride.
Age restrictions: Pony rides – 3 years old and over 1 hour rides – 6 years old and over
2 hour or more rides – 10 years old and over
Weight limit: Less than 110kgs.
Payment: Cash only.
All trail rides are a perfect outing for a date, a children's birthday party, a treat for yourself, a gift for a colleague, or as a group activity with family and friends; special discounts apply for group bookings!
