A beginners level pony trek with calm horses and experienced safe guides (2 per group). Though they do a little trotting, so be prepared for that. They base choice of horse on what you tell them. So if you have no or very little experience and are a little nervous, then you must tell them at the start. I am... More

I am sorry but this is one of the worst trail ride we have experienced in the past. Staff were very unprofessional but most of all they tried to work around tour at their convenience all the time. Our guest who had no experience riding a horse was giving a horse which were hard to control. They obviously knew the... More

We booked the Truemans Bush Ride which is suitable for beginners or for those who have not ride on a horse before. The other options are Green Bush Ride which are for experienced riders. The horses will walk and trot to nearby Park and then explore the Green Bush via its long sandy pathways. The All Day Rides which also... More

Gunnamatta Trail Rides went above and beyond for my partner. He planned to propose to me on our beach ride and the staff really managed to trick me and keep it all a surprise. We did the 2 hour trail and beach ride. It was just lovely! Especially the beach ride. Horses were very well mannered and did not give... More

I booked a beach & bush ride for my best friend & I expecting to be able to go on the beach for quite some time as I have on other rides with different companies. I expected to canter on the beach too. After the booking was complete for one person the lady told me she 'forgot' some details such... More

My partner recently surprised me with a twilight beach ride at Gunnamatta Trail Rides, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! The staff were fantastic, really friendly and helpful, and the horses all had beautiful temperaments and looked well cared for. The scenery was stunning, and the staff were more than happy to take a few pics for... More

We saw the trail ride at the Royal Melbourne show and booked the beach and spa package as our anniversary present to each other. Once we arrived there we went to check in and got told to be weighed, even though we already told them our weight when booking and was told was fine. After being weighed we got told... More

On first glance, the website for booking seemed awfully convenient and secure. Unfortunately, after entering my credit details and even receiving a receipt for my supposed payment deposit, I did not receive a confirmation email or sorts from the company itself. When I called them up, it became apparent that there were no rides available for the duration of the... More

I purchased rides for me and my three adult daughters through Red Balloon, getting a great deal ($105) .We went on a Sunday at 930am. told to be there 30 minutes before. They are quite well set up, very focused on safety. Be warned, they do weigh you before you ride. You also cant carry any loose items in your... More

Just back from a weekend away on the Mornington Peninsula, where on the Saturday afternoon I booked for the 3 hour Experienced rider Bush ride. As a rider of 20+yrs it is rare to have the opportunity to book a ride in which you actually get to have several good fast canters rather than plod along on the safe and... More
