Chum Creek Horse Rides offer 2.5 hour Horse Trail Rides in the Yarra Valley mountainside for experienced riders. This 2.5 hour Horse Trail Ride does not include a wine tasting and is only for experienced riders. On this ride, we ride in the neighbouring Toolangi State forest with spectacular views of the Yarra Valley and the Great Dividing Range.
Within minutes of getting on the horse, we are riding through the Australian Bush, riding under the trees where there is always a chance to see wildlife, such as; eagles, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, lizards, echidnas, and deer.
This 2.5 hour Horse Trail Ride is only suitable for very experienced riders. Chum Creek Horse Rides employ experienced Horse Trail Guides.
Due to customer demand, preference and good sound management, Chum Creek Horse Rides limit the number of customers on each ride, (usually no more than 10 customers on each ride). This way everyone better enjoys the ride.
