This was beyond our expectations. Such a wonderful perfect day. The areas u ride are beautiful, hosts are fantastic and helpful. The venue is nice and tranquil and the horses are friendly and easy to ride. Have never ridden a horse and was worries at start but its so easy. These horses are so well trained they practically know exactly what to do. Such a great experience. Something i will definatly do again here. They have a option to stay there in a cute cottage and have a campfire dinner and a morning ride also. Such a friendly amazing place. Really toped the list for things done at port macquarie

We arrived at the parking spot by the side of the road in time to have our host, Mark, collect us in the troop carrier and head into the mountains. The parking spot is easy to find but getting there from Port Macquarie / Wauchope is a little tricky so allow some time to find it. If you're early you can always grab a coffee in Beechwood.

The stables are in a beautiful location, remote and picturesque. The introductions quickly made with the usual forms for liability and assessment of ability. As two experienced horse-riders we wondered how this would work with people who had never been on a horse before. We needn't have worried; everyone got as much out of the ride as they could. Some who could just managed a rising trot had as much fun as we did with a mixture of walk, trot and canter.

The horses are excellent can are all born and bred on the ranch. They are all trained by Mark and his team and it's fascinating to hear him talk about how Bellrowan has grown over the years. Our horses clearly knew what was required of them and would halt when asked, took direction well and had a collected canter.

The trails were excellent, and it was thoroughly enjoyable riding deep in the forest. We were told that there are 800 acres to ride and we didn't see the same trail twice.

For anyone seeking to ride of any ability this is an excellent destination and I would recommend Bellrowan Valley horse riding without reservation.

My 9yo daughter and I went on a 1 hour ride at Bellrowan. The hosts were friendly and helpful and kept all the kids happy. We learned how to control our horses and were soon riding away. We had a few goes at trotting and had a lovely trek through the bush.

We are experienced horse riders and joined a 2 hour ride at Bellrowan. It was excellent from beginning to end. Our host couldn't do enough, the horses were in fabulous condition and we had a great canter through amazing countryside.
We thought the reviews were so good they may have been written by the owners but they were all accurate.
The home made bread, jam and cream at the end of the ride was the icing on top of the cake.
Just wish we were here long enough to join one of the overnight treks.
