“Chilled Out Winery Tour on Horseback”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My wife & I kicked off our 7th wedding anniversary celebration with a 3 hour horseback tour, visiting Olive Grove & T'Gallant wineries.

A very well run operation, very safe for absolute beginners (like me) & big blokes catered for (thanks to Tank the Clydesdale!).

Highly recommend this unique option!

“Full day ride with lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Did this ride on Sunday with two other riders. I rate this ride 11/10 very professional. Riders are matched very well with their horses depending on experience.

Never before have I been to a trail ridding centre that look after all there horses so well. All in great condition. New Swede stock saddles make for a very comfortable and safe ride.

The staff on the rides are very well trained, and make sure you are happy and feel safe.

We did lunch at Max's restaurant included on the all day ride, lovely 3 course meal with a glass of wine, you could choose from anything on the main restaurant menu. Great views both from the restaurant and the trail ride.

Bring your mum, partner, or friends and finish it off with a afternoon at the hot springs.

Our tour guide was Lara, a very experienced rider who was very attentive to our group. You could see she truly loved her job. Thanks for making our day so enjoyable Lara.

“Thoroughly Enjoyed”

Recently visted with a couple of friends and did the 3 hour ride. The horses were lovely - very calm and very well behaved - and the guides were friendly and encouraging. Already planning our next visit.

“What a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Lovely ride through relaxing country side on beautiful horses. Guides were extremely helpful and attentive to the whole group. Winery stops were very well done, enough time to relax a bit but not too long. Would strongly recommend to everyone.
