“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.
Visitors can walk through pristine areas while having minimal impact on the surrounding environment, The walk offers an interesting way for participants to learn about the history and the geographical area that is kangaroo Valley. The trails are confined to fire trails and old logging trails with limited numbers of hikers. 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.
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
