Horse Riding Sydney and Central Coast
Glenworth Valley has over 200 quality horses, allowing them to cater for the exact needs of all riders. There friendly staff will select a horse to suit your riding ability, from gentle horses for beginners to more challenging horses for experienced riders. 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
Guided horse riding is suitable for riders of all abilities, with no previous horse riding experience required. Instruction on control and management of your horse is given before leaving the yards and a professional and friendly guide will accompany you on your ride. You will be 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 at your own pace.
Free-range horse riding
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 before however the final decision regarding rider experience and ability for free range riding rests with the Yard Manager on the day.
Lead pony rides
Lead pony rides are available for children aged 3 to 12 years old, for 1 hour. An adult is required to lead the pony/horse from the ground. For children under 5 years old, 2 adults are required; one to lead and one to walk beside. Up to 2 children can share the lead pony in one hour (one at a time).
