Riders of all levels - from first-timers to veterans - will be able to take part as it is suitable for the inexperienced and lasts for approximately forty minutes.

Upon returning to the Colonel's Homestead and stable the horses, you'll take the time to enjoy a traditional morning or afternoon tea of freshly baked scones, cakes and slices, tea, coffee and fruit juice.
