The Oaks Ranch and Country Club stables runs 1 and 2 hour guided trail rides (subject to demand) as well as "mini trail rides" for riders younger riders or those looking for a shorter ride option. Our mini trail option has staff members on the ground to assist or lead riders as necessary, perfect for absolute beginners or those a little bit nervous.
Horseriding is available to the public as well as our in house guests, our horses are well cared for, well behaved and responsive, and are suitable for all types of riders - even Man from Snowy River, Tom Burlinson has been riding with us.
Based between Batemans Bay and Moruya we are the closest horseriding stables to many popular tourist destinations such as Broulee, Mogo, Mossy Point and Tomakin.
Our trail rides are suitable for riders of all abilities and with no more than 6 riders at a time we can tailor the ride to suit your experience. Instruction on controlling and managing your horse is given before leaving the stables and a professional friendly guide will accompany you on the ride through the 300 acres of the Ranch, taking in some beautiful and diverse scenery. You will ride through bush, woodland and along the river banks, getting sandy or wet hooves depending on the tides.
Our half hour pony fun experiences are fully supervised and allow our younger riders to be introduced to the pony at a relaxed pace and to learn some basic grooming and handling skills before finishing off with a ride around the main house.
Oaks Ranch also offers childrens riding lessons with HSA qualified staff. Lessons can be individual or in a group and are tailored to each riders level of ability from absolute beginner to intermediate.
Please note that when booking your ride we will need to know about any previous riding experience as well as your age, height and weight to match you to the most suitable mount. On the day of the ride you need to be wearing long pants and covered shoes. We will provide helmets which must be worn by all riders.
