Had an absolutely fabulous little holiday at Hidden Valley Horse Treks. The horses were happy, very well looked after, well behaved and not your typical trekking horse. While I took my own horse (which was fantastic to be able to do) I would have been very happy riding one of theirs.

The scenery was stunning, in spite of the cooler weather and winters day on our last day. We throughly enjoyed the riding which covered farm land, forestry and beach riding. 

Harley was a fantastic host and an even better chef! Would go back just for Harley's cooking alone! 

We will defiantly be going back for a longer stay once winter is over.

Thanks heaps Harley.

What a FANTASTIC getaway! Harley was an amazing host, full of local history and culinary flare. He looks after his horses and they were such a pleasure to ride! saddles were very comfortable and the scenery breathtaking. From farmland to beaches to forests.. such diversity. My biggest recommendation is that I will be back for a longer stay! Two days was not enough! Thank you So much and I look forward to sampling the carrot cake Jordan!
