Excellent horse-centric way to see the winelands!
Dec 2019
My wife and I did a full day horseback riding tour with Louise and had an amazing time. We booked directly through her website (can't put a URL on TA - search for Horseback Riding at Pink Geranium and you will find it) and the communication was excellent from the start.

It is clear that Louise wants to give the customer a riding experience that is well tailored to what they want, what their riding capabilities are and what is best for the horses. My wife rides a fair bit whereas I am a beginner rider - she paired us each up with a perfect horse. Kelly's would require a bit more attention which kept Kelly engaged and mine was a well seasoned horse that still had lots of capability with the right rider.

It was just the two of us and Louise on the tour which made for great riding, and great conversation. A picnic lunch was packed for us and we rode to a perfect spot to enjoy scenery and the food Lou had made. Unfortunately, and randomly, both of the wine farms we stopped at were closed for the day so we could not do tastings, but Lou brought wine, and got a bottle from one of the closed vineyards for us to enjoy on our first stop and over lunch. This was not a huge issue for us as we were doing wine tastings the next day, and this excursion was more about the riding than it was the wine.

It is clear that Louise takes care of the horses and they all appeared to be healthy and sound. The horse my wife was riding (Princess) ended up lame at the end of the ride (which happens with any horse for many reasons) and after a short period of assessment, Louise decided it best that she not have a rider on her for the last couple kilometers. So, Kelly jumped on the horse that Louise was riding and Lou walked beside Princess the rest of the way back. It would have been easy for someone to cared less about the health of the animal to force the horse through the soreness. This is what you want to see from someone who works with animals! (Louise updated us and Princess was checked by the Vet the next day, and had no major injury - just soreness and will be off work until healed).

Note that we rode in English saddles and I suspect that she puts everyone on an English saddle. So it's not the cushy/comfy western saddle that some people would be used to on many commercial "trail rides".

But what you get with this ride is not a commercial "trail ride". It is far beyond that. It is the best way to see the beautiful wine country for horse people and I can't recommend it enough.

Dear Adam, You have just give. Me the single most rewarding moment of my professional life! What you have written in your review is exactly what I aimed to do when I started doing this! The horses have to be the centre of it all, but beyond that I wanted to give people something extra ordinary, beyond a commercial trail ride. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
