Join the "signature" horse ride that is available every day of the year (excluding Christmas Day) and has long been the most popular option for Mornington Peninsula horse riding - one that starts off in the bush, and ends up along the lovely sands of St. Andrews Beach. A scenic and exhilarating ride suitable for all riding abilities ranging from beginners to experienced riders, you'll have a memorable tour that you'll be talking about for a long time to come! Long enjoyed by both locals and tourists from all over the world alike, over the course of 2 hours your rider-guides will take you to a spectacular stretch of coast on the Mornington Peninsula, situated approximately 90 minutes South of Melbourne.

Begin along a bushland track and head towards the ocean beach, as the horses climb over lofty sand dunes and down onto a beautiful sandy beach where horses may walk in the rock-protected ocean water and you drink in views of the impressive coastline. The tour is conducted at a leisurely pace on the back of well-disciplined and sociable horses, mostly done at a trot but occasionally breaking out into a gallop or a canter based on the riding group's overall skill level. Soak in the scenery, take your horse through a stroll in the shallow water, and enjoy one of regional Victoria's most popular experiences by booking a beach horse riding tour today.

Inclusions

  • 2 hour bush and beach horse ride
  • Professionally trained guides
  • Suitable for beginners and experienced riders

Highlights

  • The ride begins along a bushland track heading towards the ocean beach for about 45 minutes. Horses then climb over lofty sand dunes and down onto a beautiful sandy beach where horses often walk in the rock protected ocean water
  • Fully trained instructors are there to help inexperienced riders and the ride involves mainly walking but will include some slow trotting on the way to the beach
  • Views along the coastline from the sand dunes are spectacular and surfers and even whales can often be seen
  • Once on the beach, riders who guides deem to be competent may trot along the beautiful St Andrews ocean beach
  • Riders can choose to walk along the shoreline as there are a minimum of 2 instructors on the rides
  • The exhilaration of riding along the beach as the waves crash over the nearby rocks with the wind blowing in your face is both breath-taking and memorable

Time

  • Tours depart at 12pm everyday except Wednesday. 9.30am also available on Saturday
  • Tours depart from 150 Sandy Rd, Fingal, VIC, approximately a 1 hour drive from the Melbourne CBD. You must arrive 30 minutes prior to your ride departure time
  • Closed Christmas Day

What To Bring

  • Long pants and enclosed shoes
  • Jeans and runners are quite acceptable. Soft canvas shoes are not advisable
  • Loose or flowing clothing such as scarves can scare other horses and are not permitted on the ride
  • You can bring a small camera with you and there will be an opportunity to take photos on the ride. Small 'bum bags' are provided to carry your camera. Larger cameras may not be taken

Additional Information

  • For the safety of customers and the health of the horses, a maximum weight restriction of 95kgs applies. You will be required to enter each participants weight in the 'Add Booking Notes' section of the shopping cart. You may be asked to be weighed on the day of the ride, and if you have advised your weight incorrectly and exceed 95kgs, you will not be permitted to ride and all monies will be forfeited
  • The ride will still go out in the rain, so if it is forecast to rain bring a waterproof jacket. We do not cancel a ride because of rain as some of the best scenery is seen on overcast days. In the rare case where we do cancel a ride due to electrical storms, we will notify you and arrange to reschedule your ride

  • Horses are not permitted to gallop. If you are confident and competent, there are opportunities to canter

Amazing & entertaining experience. Another bucket list item fulfilled thanks to Gunnamatta Trail Rides. It was my first time on a horse and felt at ease. The weather was perfect and adored my horse named Chuck. Friendly and passionate guides (Josh & Trif), and group and could not have asked for a better birthday experience. Looking forward to another ride soon. Giddy-up!

ビーチの乗馬に、一人で参加しました。簡単な馬の乗り方、軽速歩のやり方などの説明がありスタートです。実際はビーチまでの道のりの方が長く、ビーチに居たのは10分程度でした。途中の道のりはブッシュみたいな感じで馬上で立ち上がった時に枝で頭を打ちそうな感じでなかなか難しかったです。途中、かなり砂埃ひどいのでマスクがあると良いかもしれません。帰ったあと鼻をかむと真っ黒でした。 なかなか日本では味わえない乗馬経験ができると思います。楽しかったのでぜひ!次は別のもっと長いコースに参加したいと思います。一人で参加も全く問題なかったですよ!

It was 34 degrees and there wasn't an option to take a water bottle with us on a 2 hour horse riding trek

It was 34 degrees and there wasn't an option to take a water bottle with us on a 2 hour horse riding trek. The website also says it's a 1 hour drive from the city. It is a 2 hour drive in traffic. The guides were great, the trail and beach ride was amazing and the instructors knew their stuff. The facilities at the ranch were also great.
