Sonshine Ranch offers Horse Treks to anyone who is wanting to try something different during their weekends or fill a gap for those needing their horsey fix. Horse Treks are on offer all year round, though it is important to note that during school holidays we cannot offer them because of the full work load and availability of the horses during camps.

Saturdays at 11.30am are the main and most popular days for people to attend for a Trek. Weekdays are also available however bookings are dependent on availability.

We can cater for all range of abilities, from complete beginners to experienced riders. Please note that Saturday treks are more suitable for beginner riders.

When people arrive for a Horse Trek they are introduced to their horses and given a short introduction on how to ride. Groups spend the first 10-15 minutes in the arena getting use to their horses before heading out on a trek around the farm. The Farm Trek involves trekking over the hillside and through native bush situated at different points around the farm. Depending on the size and ability of the group part of the time may be spent in another one of the riding arenas.

Horse Treks make the best birthday gifts or birthday parties as well as a family outing or even friends get together. If this sounds like something for you, be sure to contact the office and book in today.
