My family had a morning ride with Sheila and Janet(s). I can't possibly contain how fun it was. Overall ride was about 3 hours (including two breaks, one at the top of the hill for a scenic view, and the other for tea near a creek). Total time from when we arrived and left was about four hours. It was... More

Sheila is the bomb, the real deal!! My niece Paris and I booked a half day ride. It was pretty wet when we got there and I was worried it might be cancelled but happily Sheila was ready to go! We rode Suzie and Sheree, both wonderful trustworthy horses. Sheree as very responsive for me and I even trotted a... More

Now well and truly hooked on horses, we returned for a ride at Wongabel at last, and were not disappointed. Finding old equine... More

Beautiful setting, wonderful people, knowledgeable and experienced, this is a real deal equine experience not a flimsy tourist operation. Make sure you check out the Ferro cement tree building whilst you are there.

It's not for tourists looking for a pony ride, this is the real deal, a family concern with a passion for horses and the bush. You need to be a rider to go out on these trips, and our daughter was too young, but the little treat she got was, in her own words, just about the most wonderful thing... More
