“The Man from Kangaroo Valley Trail Ride” “Kangaroo Valley Horseriding “is run by husband and wife team, Geoff & Gail (125 years combined experience with horses). It encompasses Mt. Moollootoo, lush rain forest, open grazing land and endless bush that expands into the Morton National Park, some of the most beautiful horse riding in Australia. Our backyard is an escape into the relaxing lifestyle of our working horse property.
Horseback riding is an environmentally friendly way to appreciate the beauty and ecosystems of Kangaroo Valley.
Kangaroo Valley Horseriding have been guiding ecotourism adventures on the property for over 20 years.
On horseback, visitors can travel through pristine areas while having minimal impact on the surrounding environment, The ride offers an interesting way for participants to learn about the history and the geographical area that is kangaroo Valley. The trail ride is confined to fire trails and old logging trails with limited numbers of participants- generally 6 or less. Our overarching principles are that we enhance the environment where possible ( for example, replanting native cedar and casuarina trees): leave no traces; and teach guests about the natural and indigenous history of the locale.
On the trail, Geoff will stop to describe in detail the changes to flora and fauna, discuss how we can all reduce our impacts on the environment, why sustainability and the preservation of the natural world is important and why as individuals we have a responsibility to protect it.
Kangaroo Valley Horseriding is committed to best practice ecological sustainability, natural area management and the provision of quality ecotourism experiences. We work together with other stakeholders in taking action on climate change. We have undertaken a set of adaption and emissions reduction actions gaining Green Kangaroo accreditation.
We follow the concept of natural horsemanship, a philosophy of working with horses based on the idea of working with the horse’s nature, using an understanding of how horses think and communicate to train the horse to accept humans and work confidently and responsively with them.
The horses have taught us how to control our own energy levels, to respect their “space”,to treat them as individuals.
We want nothing more than to share this beautiful environment with you, and look forward to sharing our love of horses and our peaceful lifestyle.
Geoff and Gail
