2 1/2 hour rides - 3 persons max

October - May 


OUR RIDES can be as relaxed or as adventurous as you like. We climb gently up to natural glacial terraces overlooking the spectacular high country scenery with the Eyre Mountains in the background.  We wander down the valley through Gold Rush remains alongside a working sheep and cattle station.  

You do not need to have riding experience to enjoy riding.  We take no more than 2-3 riders at a time, and you will only ride with the group you book with. 

Please insure you wear sturdy enclosed footwear and long pants. We provide helmets, drizabone riding coats and sunblock.  

MORNING RIDE:  Leave at 9am.  Morning tea provided.  

AFTERNOON RIDE: Leave at 2pm.  Afternoon tea provided.  

SUNSET RIDES ON SPECIAL REQUEST - For those feeling romantic, anniversary, proposal or any special occasion.  Complete with champagne and strawberries!  Weather dependent.

Riding at your own risk.  Your safety is a priority, however there remains an element of risk.  Rustic Rides cannot be held responsible for personal injury, loss or damage to equipment.  Please note we have a weight restriction of under 100 kgs, for the benefit of the horses so they are not put under too much stress.  You will need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy your riding.
