I have only ridden a few times before (mostly on holiday in similar places) and although I was very nervous to begin with I had a great time.
When we arrived, we were slightly put off by the size of the group - there were at least 40 people all getting ready to ride. However, they then split us up into groups of 4 or 5 riders (by ability) and then we set off with our guide.
We did a 2 hour (River Wild) route which took us along and then right through one of the rivers running through the Glenorchy valley. This sounds scary but the horses are so well trained and powerful that they had no problem getting across - it was certainly exhilarating. There were a couple of young girls with us and I wondered how they would get on, but they loved it.
Well worth a visit - in this stunning location (used in plenty of films - which the guides will tell you all about).
