This program is so much fun and the kids loved it!!! Spending the day in the care of the Horse Retreat staff, learning about horses and riding - what could be better? Thoroughly recommend as a school holiday activity in the beautiful Bonogin Valley.

Hot day. No off road parking in shade. Driveway very steep for me as a senior. Actual experience for granddaughter was wonderful. Instructor & 2 juniors were excellent, informative. Horses varied sizes. Well managed. Wonderful experience would recommend.

Instructors were great, but on the business side of things there is poor communication and disorganization. Our group of kids was delayed over an hour. Very unprofessional and not at all customer focused.
