Excellent experience for all of us aged from 6 to 39. Everyone that worked there was so good and relaxed and made you stress free and for more enjoyment. We've been talking about a horse ride for too long and just went and did it and will do it again but definitely the longer trip next time seeing as all loved it.

The staff are quite friendly and the experience is good. It is really friendly to beginners and kids. It is not dangerous at all. However, Experience Oz didn't fully help me to book in the horse riding time. Thus, I rescheduled the booking time to the next day.

We had a great afternoon at Gunnamatta Trail Rides
Donna Anderson 3 years ago

We had a great afternoon at Gunnamatta Trail Rides. I took three 8-9 year-olds on the Trumans Bush Ride and they were very excited to be able to ride their own horses without being led by someone for the first time. They felt very grown up that they were riding horses not ponies and I was happy to see that they were not huge horses for these little girls. Our guides were wonderful and whilst the ride itself is by the side of a road and not quite the "bush" experience, it was a lovely gentle ride complete with toys to spot in the trees to keep the girls engaged. Our guides were friendly but very professional as was the whole operation. The horses looked well-cared for and the place is very clean and tidy. Would definitely go back again.
