Take a friend or partner on a two-hour beach trail ride along the wild deserted beaches between Warrnambool and Port Fairy, just three hours from Melbourne. We have horses to suit everyone's ability, so come and feel the wind in you hair and experience the fun of horse riding along the beach!

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 4 out of 5 by Well worth the ride on the beach. A great experience and the staff were most helpful. Our horses were large and we ended up a little sore. The beach was pristine and the ride on it was most exhilarating as it was a cloudy and windy day. 7 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of Fun I bought the gift voucher as a present for my wife's birthday. She loved it. There were plenty of trained assistance. the horse's behaved themselves and riding along the beach was pretty cool but most of all my wife loved it! 2 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Highly professional organisation focusing on safety Although my partner and I found the horse riding on the beach a great experience with outstanding views of the ocean, I'm sad to say it was not as much 'Fun' as I had hoped. Understandably, for safety reasons, the ride was extremely controlled in its structure. E.g. single file all the way; no overtaking or riding side by side; etc. This made the experience hard to converse with friends and/or partners. Thus, not as much fun as a group activity. On the high side though, I'm happy to see that the horses that make up this ride were in excellent health, well groomed and cared for with equipment in good condition. A fresh change to other trails ride organisations that I have riden with. 1 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by this was a fantastic experience this experience with red balloon was great, I had organised it months before to suprise my boyfriend to go on it together for our 3 year anniversary. The area it is in is great, staff were very helpful and the tracks we went on were breath taking, my boyfriend and I both really enjoyed and we would recommend it to people to go and do it. It was well worth the money I paid for it. 13 January 2013
