I’m not an experienced rider but I have galloped before on another trail, will I be able to try?

Only advanced riders – those who have had their own horses or had extensive lessons – will be allowed to gallop. We are not a riding school that teaches people how to ride, so only experienced riders will be allowed to do more than a walking pace once we leave the reserve.

Even though our horses are quiet and know their work, riders need to understand how to control a horse at a canter and gallop, and how to sit correctly, for both their own safety and the comfort of our horses.

If other centre’s have permitted beginners to gallop, that is their prerogative, but our priorities are our guests’ safety and our horses’ well being.
