Glenworth Valley Horse Riding


I now have a brand new Photo/Travel blog Oh Snap – This crazy little girl would really appreciate if you could drop sometime

***************

Nestled in a picturesque valley is a private horse riding center which provides facilities for not only Horse riding, but also Quard biking, Kayaking, Camping and Abseiling. Acres and acres of beautiful lush meadows stretch towards the base of the mountain where you can find Emus and gorgeous horses. The place is situated about 20 minutes away from Gosford station, which is about an hour away from Sydney.




You can make an  online booking for the activities you are interested on. We had initially planned to go for kayaking but since we didn’t pre-book the slot, we opted for Horse Riding and Quard Biking.


I got a lovely horse named Angel. She loves to lead I presume, because every time a horse stayed behind she would immediately walk in front. And I had to make sure we don’t crash into the riders coming from opposite way. 






As a first time horse rider, I had an awesome time. Each group had a guide who would take the troop around the valley. We were going up and down the terrain for about 2 hours. 


My knees were so stiff that I had to sit for a while before I could walk again.

The camping site was pretty crowded too. 

Some were partying, some playing with their kids and some just soaking in the absolutely marvelous scenery.

  7. Wow! Horse riding and the environment looks so fitting. I have tried once as a kid to sit on a horse and it walks by along the beach? Those short rounds? But riding is difficult I heard. Good, looks like you had good time

  10. How does it feel to ride a horse?

    Which one is more overwhelming? Is it the tabdik tabdik (horse plodding) sound or the constant pounding on your bum? :P

    Awesome pics. You seem to travel a lot.

    Loved reading.

    Cheers
