*Riding Ability
In order to fully enjoy the magic of this overnight ride you will need to be either a strong intermediate or an experienced rider with a high level of riding fitness.

Strong intermediate who is currently riding regularly and is comfortable and competent in all three gaits outside of an Arena; able to post or sit to the trot; have an independent seat while cantering (don’t hold onto the saddle).

Advanced a frequent rider who is very fit, comfortable in the saddle for at least 4 hours per day, and has an independent seat and soft hands. Advanced riders are confident on a forward-moving horse at all paces over rough and variable ground on open terrain.

This ride has a number of steep hills and narrow tracks that require a confident rider. 

If you used to ride regularly but have not for a few years we strongly recommend building up some saddle hours before the ride. Your bum will thank you later!

    I absolutely love it I visit every year, and each trip with my friends is a wonderful experience. We enjoy self-guided tours around the stunning farms of Stone Hill, choosing different seasons to witness the farm's beauty in various natural colors—lush greenery in spring and golden shades in summer and early autumn. The scenery is simply breathtaking! There are different tracks to choose from, whether it's a short evening ride or a longer one where we stop for a picnic by the river or on top of a hill for incredible views. Both accommodation options are comfortable, and the family hosting our stay is always friendly and extremely helpful. Stone Hill is a fantastic place to share with friends! Highly recommended.

    Our family had a fantastic time on this magical property. The 2-hour horse ride was amazing, offering us a chance to enjoy various stunning scenic views. As an inexperienced rider, I felt a bit apprehensive, but Nicole put me completely at ease. My horse, Buddy, had a wonderfully calm nature, which made the ride even more enjoyable. I brought my partner and his 12-year-old son along, and they both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Nicole's expertise and friendly demeanor made this an unforgettable adventure for all of us. We can't thank her enough for this wonderful memory. I highly recommend this experience to everyone! 🥰
