Western gateway to the Hunter Valley.
Australia's major thoroughbred horse breeding and rearing area is the Hunter Valley. The Scone area, in particular, has long been one of the biggest horse breeding areas on Earth. Therefore, it's not surprising that Hunter Valley Horse Riding is also one of this relaxing holiday destination's most popular outdoor activities.
Hunter Valley Horse Riding is also the name of a Lovedale horseback riding establishment in the Molly Morgan Range. Beginner and expert riders alike can enjoy these scenic trail rides. Older family members can walk or ride alongside children as they ride ponies. There are even wine rides which include locally produced wines from a nearby vineyard.
The community of Pokolbin is home to the Hunter Valley Horse Riding and Carriage Tours establishment. Visitors can sample a wide variety of local wines along the way as they tour the region on horseback or aboard romantic horse-drawn carriages.
The family owned Chapman Valley Horse Riding establishment is one of the highest ranked facilities of its kind in the whole country. As only half a dozen riders are permitted on each of these guided Australian bush tours, each rider is guaranteed individual attention. This tranquil beef cattle farm surrounded by valleys and mountains has been in the same family for six generations.
