  • Had a great 2 hour ride with lea today, she was very friendly and helpful to both experienced and those less experienced on the ride. The horses were very well looked after and the Bush trail was very nice. It was great value for money, I would absolutely recomend for anyone of any riding level. :)
  • We enjoyed our ride very much. Good trail and the staff were great. Highly recommended even for anyone that has not ridden a horse before.
  • This was our third trip to Valeryi and as always we had a fantastic experience. Annette our guide was friendly and professional and made the ride really enjoyable. Horses are also very responsive and obviously well cared for. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a good horse riding experience.
  • It's beautiful and peaceful. My daughter is learning how to ride. Horseriding is wonderful experience but it is dangerous and rules must be obeyed faithfully. Besides the horse riding lessons there are trail rides to experience but we have not done this yet. There is a pool and BBQ facilities that you can use. It's well worth the visit.
  • It was a good ride , takes a little time for the horses to bond but after a while you would start enjoying the ride. The path is scenic and the guides are good. Better aviod a very sunny day. The horses get exhausted and so do you.
