“Best Trail Ride Yet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have been on quite a few trail rides in Sydney but non compare to Chapman Valley! I expected a ride on a well beaten track with nose-to-bum horses that were lethargic and stubborn. Instead, We rode through incredibly beautiful and diverse bush land, around hill side and plains and we could walk side-by-side! Jess is an expert rider and lovely to chat to for the two hour ride. We even saw a wombat on our way, which is apparently quite rare. My younger sister and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I would rather drive for the 1.5hrs from western Sydney than go elsewhere.

A fantastic experience! We had limited riding experience but Jess and her family made us feel at home and at ease! The horses are well behaved and love carrots! Highly recommend and would definitely go back!
