The Mountain Trail Rides climb through lush subtropical rainforest on Mt Moollootoo which overlooks the property, some of the most beautiful horseriding in Australia. From the peak of Moollootoo there are panoramic views of Morton National park that make a perfect backdrop for photographs of cowboys and cowgirls on horseback.

I had an awful experience at this place. After a long drive and an early morning booking the owner, Geoff, cancelled our ride because he was in a bad mood after a busy Easter weekend. Don't go there. We spent hours finding it to be turned away at 8.30 in the morning just because we didn't want to listen to... More

I am co-owner and Geoff's wife. I am also an academic with a PhD in Medicine. We are both highly educated and have collective horse handling experience of 127 years. I was not involved in their exchange as I was saddling horses but I overheard the conversation and observed the customer's behaviour. My husband was not in a bad mood,... More

I have been riding horses on and off for more than 35 years. But what Geoff taught us in only 3 hours yesterday is more than I ever learnt about horses nature all my life. Thank you Geoff. I now can feel the connection with the horse instead of controlling it.

I pre-booked (essential at Easter) this trail ride for my twin 11 year old sons and me, and was really looking forward to the opportunity to allow the boys to experience "independent" horse riding (i.e. without being led, as is usual for younger, inexperienced children). Our experience did not disappoint. Before riding, Geoff took just the right amount of time... More

Went here with my partner during Feb. Was a fantastic experience. Owner is very passionate about animals, and gives you a deeper understanding of the importance of body language when interacting with horses. We were both amateurs but felt comfortable and safe for the entire ride. Views were absolutely breathtaking, as this ride takes you up and down the mountainside.... More

My partner organised the farm stay and horse ride for my birthday, I couldn't have been happier! The trail ride is through Geoff's property, the views along the way we're amazing and the horses very well trained. Geoff's passion for what he does and love of animals is infectious, I have never connected with a horse like I did with... More

This was a wonderful gift from my partner. We travelled from Sydney down to Kangaroo Valley were Geoff and Gail and their animals were all so welcoming, delightful, kind and most definitely reassuring for us first timers. The view and the experience itself undoubtedly blew us both away! Geoff is an absolute legend and has trained his beautiful horses so... More

Myself and my girlfriend took this tour in October on a Saturday evening, and it was perfect. Jeremy is a great teacher and funny guy and makes sure that everyone is comfortable and informed about their experience.

My partner and I travelled from Sydney for a weekend away and it was a spectacular few days! We stayed on the property in the Cabins for 2 nights and did horse riding, visited a winery and Fitzroy Falls. The horse riding was a fun way to see the property!
