Our ‘signature’ ride and no riding experience is necessary to enjoy riding a horse to a beautiful ocean beach. The ride takes 2 hours and has magnificent views from the high sand dunes looking down over the coastline.
The ride leaves our stables and heads along a sandy track for 45 minutes (where trotting is required) towards the beach climbing over lofty sand dunes and down onto a beautiful sandy beach where the horses often stroll in the rock protected ocean water.
Our Parks Victoria permit enables us to ride for 15 – 20 minutes along the beach and we believe that horse riding along the rugged St Andrews beach is simply breath-taking and one of life’s ‘must-do’s’. (2 hours, Beginner suitable & Min age 10 yrs)

Enjoy our spectacular St Andrews Bush & Beach ride that starts 5pm and runs for approx 2 hours. (2 hours, Beginner suitable & Min age 10 yrs)
