Join us for a light lunch and trail ride through the beautiful Adelaide Hills exploring the local area around Hahndorf and all the wildlife along the way. This time. As it's so close to the end of the year we will have a Christmassy theme for a bit of fun so pull out the bauble earrings and ugly sweaters (or shirts)!
To add a little Christmas cheer please bring along a Kris Kringle / Secret Santa present to the maximum value of $5
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.
In the interest of safety, Leonie our host will be capturing footage during our event that will be shared with all participants so you can focus on riding. If you prefer not to have your photo taken or shared on social media, please notify her prior to.
The trail ride will run for approximately 1 hour followed on our return by delicious scones and a glass of bubbly (or mineral water),Tea, herbal teas, coffee and milo will also be available.
All the horses are both well trained and loved 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.
If time and the normal running of the stud allows we will also include a short tour and discuss what goes into maintaining and running a property like this.
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.
Sorry, riders are not able to bring their own mounts
This is a self drive event and we encourage participants to carpool, if you're interested please post on the Adventurous Women SA Facebook page
