This is the first bad review I’ve ever written but based on my experience it is well deserved.
I went here with a group of friends hoping to have a nice ride and camp out overnight. The first night was spent with the owner of the place and his wife having dinner. The dinner was nice but we found the owner incredibly rude, chauvinistic and disrespectful to the point where some moments during dinner were really tense.
The following morning we set out on a ride, very happy that the farmhand was taking us out. He was great fun, really attentive and great to chat to. However we were dismayed when we found out that not only were the owner and his wife again joining us for dinner, but they and their three huge dogs were sharing our ‘hut’ overnight! They cooked dinner, played their music from their car stereo and he even had the gall to call one of his friends and tell him that he was camping with a bunch of girls! We were all horrified at his behaviour and a lot of the night was spent feeling very uncomfortable.
We all went to bed as soon as it started to rain (really early) as what else could we do? None of wanted to talk with him and it was a bit hard to have a good catch up together with him around. It was an uncomfortable night with dogs moving and making noises, the sounds of them both sleeping and the tense feeling of sleeping next to total strangers who you don’t particularly like!
The following day the owner took the ride back down to the cabin through such a windy, uncomfortable route that we were all sure he got lost (as the horses had to backtrack heaps and then as soon as he found the fence line he seemed to know where he was). We all got the sense from the way the staff treated him that they didn’t think he knew what he was doing (in fact the owner had done my girth up on the first day and as soon as we had got around the bend the farmhand had come and tightened it).
None of us will ever go here again.
