Cradle Country Adventures
Horse riding in Tasmania in 3 unique locations: Kimberley (near Sheffield) located in the beautiful Mersey Valley, Cradle Mountain in the Vale of Belvoir Conservation Area and Bakers Beach (Narawntapu National Park).
It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an advanced horseperson – our horseriding gives you the chance to live it up outdoors in the quintessential Australian experience.
There are half-day, full-day and multi-day rides to choose from, with some rides taking in parts of the Tom Quilty endurance riding course and the 480km Tasmanian Trail from Devonport to Dover. Gaze at the brilliant landscapes, feel the gentle breeze on your face, taste fine produce, smell the wildflowers and campfire damper and hear the stories behind our three amazing locations. There are creek crossings, log jumps and varying terrain and it’s likely you may spot a playful platypus, a waddling wombat, Kangaroos, Wallabies or Echidnas during your ride.
Our rides at Kimberley travel through undulating areas of old-growth eucalypt forest, historic farmland, forest plantations and rivers, all with spectacular forest, rural and mountain views. Experience a range of landscapes from the stunning agricultural hinterland of the Mersey Valley to the renowned Cradle Mountain.
Rides also traverse areas of the Great Western Tiers region and there are views across to the distant waters of Bass Strait.
For those wanting to go horse-riding on the Beach we offer 3 or 5 hour Beach rides.
Half-day rides range from 2 to 4 hours and these are suitable for everyone from first-time riders through to the experienced. Full day rides are most popular with our experienced guests as these rides are generally faster, longer and more demanding.
We also offer accommodation at two amazing locations, at the shearers quarters at Kimberley or the historic homestead at Bakers Beach.
