Glenworth Valley, Australia's largest horse riding centre is a magnificent 3000 acre property surrounded by National Park. With over 200 horses available and 50kms of trails to explore, Glenworth Valley will provide you with an unforgettable horse riding experience.
Less than one hour from Sydney or Newcastle and 20 minutes from Gosford, you can ride through unspoilt Australian bush and canter across lush green valleys. Discover the shady canopy of the rainforest trail, meander along the banks of Popran Creek, the purest tributary to the Hawkesbury River, arriving at the natural rock pools where you can take a well earned break from the saddle and enjoy a refreshing swim. While you relax keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife, including wallabies, lyrebirds, cockatoos, king parrots and bellbirds.
Enjoy the freedom of free range horse riding or choose a relaxing guided ride. Our experienced staff will match one of our 200 quality horses to your level of experience, whether you're a nervous beginner or an expert. All riders are given full instruction before leaving the yards. Children aged 7 and over will love being on their own horse on the guided trail rides. For the littlies, Glenworth Valley has lead ponies available. Riding lessons, and school holiday camps are also offered at Glenworth Valley.
Beautiful BBQ and picnic areas and camping packages are also available. The GV Café is open on weekends. Discovering the magic of Glenworth Valley is relaxing, fun, adventurous, exhilarating - you choose.
Glenworth Valley is open from 10am to 5pm, 7 days a week. Rides leave at 10am, 12pm & 2pm on each day.
During school holidays, special discounted rates are offered to students under 18 years. These rates are only available Monday - Friday. We also offer a special 1.5 hour ride instead of the usual 2 hour minimum ride.
Glenworth Valley also offers 1 and/or 2 day school holiday riding camps.
Whilst lessons are an ideal way to learn confidence, balance and co-ordination, these camps are a great alternative to the usual weekly lesson, expanding your child’s knowledge of horses whilst having fun in a safe, well supervised environment where the potential risks associated with horse riding are minimised.
Our camps are extremely popular and cater for the complete beginner to the advanced pony club rider. The camps offer four sessions per day. Each session is provided in accordance with a training plan which amongst other things includes grooming, saddling, ground control, walking, trotting and cantering in harmony with the horse, jumping, sporting, fun and games and scenic trail rides through rock pools & rainforests. As riders advance we will progress to lateral movement, rounding and collecting.
Ribbon days are also held on the last day of the camp.
Numbers are limited. Bookings for riding camps are essential and must be made via the Glenworth Valley office on 4375 1222 Monday to Friday or firstname.lastname@example.org
