Join us for Leonie's world famous scones and a hot drink before heading out on our trail ride through the beautiful Adelaide Hills exploring the local area around Hahndorf and all the wildlife along the way!
Before we begin our ride we will have a safety briefing and short lesson by the very friendly and qualified instructors so no prior experience is necessary.
The trail ride will run for approximately 1 hour followed on our return by a delicious light lunch and glass of bubbly (or mineral water) Tea, herbal teas, coffee and milo will also be available. We will also hopefully get to enjoy a little time grooming one of horses.
If on the day, after paying to do the trail ride, you find yourself not wanting to go ahead with it. There is an option to stay and ride in an arena with a qualified instructor or for those ladies who prefer not to ride you can opt to " Stay and Play." A staff member will teach you about horses, you can pat, groom and play with the ponies and horses on a ground level.
All the horses are well trained and will stay together and follow one another. There will be a few staff members joining us for the ride so we will have lots of help and support when needed. Your horse will be assigned to you based on your own personal ability.
Please note this is a relaxed style of ride with the horses following each other in a walk and is most suited to less experienced riders.
This is a self drive event and we encourage participants to carpool, if you're interested in carpooling please post on the Adventurous Women SA Facebook page
