A Natural Horsemanship Experience
Horse Riding at Mowbray Park FarmStay is central to this farms history, for 198 years these magnificent animals have served the needs of this farm. Humans and Horses have enjoyed a remarkable relationship, our early dependence on these powerful capable animals progressed many human cultures. They expanded our agricultural development and productive output, little wonder that the horse’s strength became the benchmark for ‘horsepower’.
Our horses like nothing better than to head out on a trail ride, it’s a life of purpose retracing their ancestral footsteps.
If you have never heard of Natural Horsemanship then you are in for a treat when you choose to ride the Mowbray Park FarmStay horses.
The sublime art of ‘love, language & leadership’ far exceeds the ‘fear, force & intimidation’ which has been the life for some horses, but not here.
You need to be 8 years of age or over to participate in the horse ride experience (4 riders minimum). We have Pony Rides available for children up to 8yrs.
For comfort wear long pants riding shoes or boots (we have a selection of boots if needed).
