If you have ever wanted to experience the fun and romance of horse riding on the beach then this is your chance! This two-hour beach trail ride will take you along the wild deserted beaches between Warrnambool and Port Fairy, just three hours from Melbourne. We have horses to suit all abilities!

You will ride on your horse through Kelly Swamp, which is full of swans and other bird life from August through to January, into the tall sand dunes and onto the beach.

The beach is a beautiful, deserted, pristine expanse of sand that stretches for 20km from Warrnambool to Port Fairy, without rocky outcrops or any other stops.

Our horses love getting out in the fresh air so this is the perfect way to experience the sometimes windy Warrnambool!

We offer first-time riders the opportunity to enjoy beach riding as we provide great instructions before leaving the stables and have qualified staff who will help you ride our wonderful horses. We have specially bred horses to cater for anyone from the nervous beginner to the very experienced rider, so everyone can enjoy the thrill of horse riding along a wide open beach! Horse riding is truly a great activity. It is a fantastic way to spend some time outdoors, it's exercise for your whole body and it's a heap of fun!

You have the choice to get on a horse for the first time and canter up the beach, a thrilling achievement, or just take it easy and spend time taking in the scenery. Staff lead the groups so every rider will have the choice to go steady or give cantering a go. We don't, however, gallop our horses.

All seasons are great to ride in. Rug up in winter and experience the white-wash waves and beautiful gold-and-green sand dunes or come for a ride in summer and enjoy the pristine deep blue water and sunny beaches. If you are lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of a wallaby or a seal, otherwise you can just sit back and view a great range of bird life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Truly an amazing experience I can't express enough how great this whole experience was. From the location, the staff, the horses and the beautiful scenery. The ride catered for all levels of experience and there was always staff around. All the horses had beautiful temperaments. I will definitely return and next time take a few of the family along with me. Great directions given via red balloon and also great signage along the roads so easy to locate the property. Thank you for a wonderful and unique experience. 2 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The horses were very "easy-to-use" for a complete beginner, and my mind was put at rest by the attention to detail of the staff. A great trip all round ! 7 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by We loved our two hour ride with Sandra, she is a confident teacher and a lovely Host. The Ocean ride is a lot of fun and views are spectacular thanks 2 May 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by The ride was beautiful however it was mostly walking and trotting (nobody likes trotting) with only a couple of short canters that only lasted a couple of seconds. as soon as the horse got going it was stopped. would have been nice to canter more. would still reccomment to those wanting a pretty beach walk on a horse. not as much though if you want a fun ride with a faster pace. 29 March 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by We went with 11 friends and shared a great time on horseback and enjoyed the beautiful scenery on a perfect day weather wise! 28 March 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by We had a wonderful day once we got there but we did not realise at the time that you had to validate all vouchers and therefore only one of us was booked in. We had to wait from 10am to 4pm before we could ride and travelled 5 1/2 hours to get there. But the ride on the beach was wonderful. 21 March 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great ride, beautiful scenery and fantastic instructors. Option for more (longer) trotting and cantering would have been good. 13 March 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by It was well organised, well instructed and an over all pleasurable experience! 12 March 2012
