Horse Riding / Central Coast
Glenworth Valley has over 200 quality horses to choose from, which allows us to cater for the exact needs of all riders. Our friendly staff will select a horse to suit your riding ability, from gentle horses for beginners to more challenging horses for the experienced rider. Individual instruction is given to all riders prior to departure and roving supervisors are on hand to assist riders if required.
Visitors to Glenworth Valley have the option of free-range riding or guided riding.
Guided Horse Riding is suitable for riders of all abilities. With guided horse rides, instruction on control and management of your horse is given before leaving the yard. A professional and friendly guide accompanies you on your ride. You are shown the features of the area while riding and once you feel proficient and confident with your horse you may be able to leave the group and explore the valley by yourself.
Free-Range Horse Riding is available for experienced riders who feel confident with their horse and who wish to explore the valley at their own pace. All riders are given instruction on control and management of the horse before leaving the yards to ride wherever they like without a guide. In order to go free range riding we like you to have ridden at least 50 times however the final decision regarding rider experience and ability for free range riding will be made by the Yard Manager.
Lead Ponies and Horses are available for children aged 3 to 10 Years old, for 1 or 2 hours. An adult is required to lead the pony/horse from the ground. For children under 4 years old we recommend 2 adults; one to lead and one to walk beside. Up to 4 children can share the lead pony in one hour (one at a time).
