I was told by Gunamatta trail riding that they would not have horses big enough to accommodate my boyfriend and I, as we were considered 'Heavy weights". This lead me to call Ace-Hi and it was the best thing to ever happen to me. I have now visited Ace-hi each and every single time I stay in our families beach house in Rosebud, and I believe I will be going there for many years to come.
Ace-Hi is its own little community right off Boneo Road, the first sign warning of 'Neurotic Chickens' sets the pace for the laid back atmosphere of the ranch. Reading the other reviews, I would believe they stayed elsewhere. Every person that I have spoke to or seen working there have been very friendly, very inviting, and have always had time for my silly little questions. The beach to Bush ride is for intermediate riders, and the staff do suggest that people who have not ridden before to go on one of the shorter rides, but it still does not stop beginners wanting to ride along the beach. I honestly do not blame them but if you are a beginner, i suggest and even plead that you go on the shorter rides.
The instructors do a great job of putting the better riders up the front, and the slower riders in the back but it can get a bit frustrating having to wait for people who cant even rise to the trot. if you want to go on the intermediate ride get used to the idea that you WILL need to know/Learn how to rise to the trot, you WILL need to keep the horses in single file and you WILL need to keep the horses in the order that they were placed in.
I would like to extend my thanks to the girls working in the chapel, the girls taking the horse rides and everyone else I have bumped into on the ranch, you have always been so friendly to me, and I honestly feel a bit like a local now, having the horse riding girls remember me and the rides we have been on. I will be booking in again and I will be taking Lisa's advice, I will be specifically asking for Echo.
Thank you so much.
