Trail Rides

Coming to the Gold Coast for holidays ? Come and visit us ! We offer trail rides on our beautiful 50 acre property.

Rides are a total of1 hour and include an initial 15 minute lesson in the arena before venturing out for 45 minutes to enjoy the sites and just relax and ride.

Our horses and ponies are very well trained and reliable.

Trail rides are a great way for family and friends to experience horse riding on the Gold Coast.

Our trail rides are set for beginner riders who want to experience horse riding in a safe and professional environment.

During the 15 min lesson, we will explain the basics of controlling a horse ( how to stop, turn etc ), we will then head outside,

walking on our property and along our beautiful river. We will stop along the river to take photos if required.

Only experienced riders can be offered to walk in the river during a privately booked ride. ( subject to weather conditions and currents )

We always try to run our trail rides, and if weather deteriorates, we will offer you a great horse riding lesson undercover for one hour, teaching you more skills riding !  

A minimum of 2 riders is required to book a trail ride. 

Maximum weight is 90 kg. Pricing is per person.

HORSE RIDING GEAR - Onsite boutique / Pro Shop :

Please consider buying your riding gear with us, our dedicated and experienced coaches will be happy to fit it all safely to you !

Unfortunately, we see too many helmets that are not fitted correctly and therefore unsafe.

We reserve the right not to accept riders with an unfitted helmet.

For your safety, back protectors are compulsory for our junior riders and all riders jumping at GCEC.

We will also happily guide you to the best technical choice.

It is all about safety and if you find the same option cheaper elsewhere, we will match that price. 

Member riders do have to purchase our uniform: GCEC polo, breeches ( riding pants ), black boots and half chaps, gloves, helmet and body protector.

We try to source the best products at the best prices.

Members riders can borrow helmet and back protector ( we only have a few junior sizes ) for their 1st term of riding.
