Most frequent question

Do I need Riding Experience?

Yes. Guests who wish to join our rides must be of an intermediate-to-experienced level of riding. There will be long days in the saddle (4-7 hours daily) and you will need to feel confident about keeping up with the group, capable of riding at all paces, rising to the trot, and controlling your horse at the canter. Please read our Riding Policy.

Do I need insurance?

Yes. Comprehensive medical insurance is required to ride with us. Travel insurance is recommended. Please read our Insurance Policy.

Is there a weight limit?

Yes and No. Most of our rides have a 90kg rider weight limit for client safety and to maintain the health of our horses. If you weight more than the limit, a supplement is levied for a second horse. We also consider height, athleticism, experience to select the size/type of horses we can provide.

Do you have a maximum group size?

We like to keep the group to a rough maximum of 8 guest riders. We think this is the maximum group size to manage effectively ensuring safety and enjoyment. But in some rides, there is no limit. We can arrange the tour for big groups either.

Most of our rides include accommodation, meals, drinks, internal transportation, guides, ride, gear, laundry and park fees. You won’t need to take much extra cash with you to pay for extra services. International flights to get to the destination, insurance, personal expenses, gifts and tips are NOT include.
