Scenic Carriage Rides

All Proceeds to the Heavy Draft Horse Foundation

10:00AM or 14:00PM

Round the top of the farm and to the view point, the horse does three gallop sections with the carriage which is safe and exhilarating; however if you don’t want a fast ride we have a gorgeous fat, mare who is far more sedate. Duration of the ride is 40 minutes.

Tours of the Herd – 10:00AM or 14:00PM

We guide you around all the top horse paddocks and you get to see all the mares, young stock and geldings and you can get close-up and personal with most of these delightful loving horses.

Our stallions are stunning, and you get to sit on the biggest horse in SA – a huge stallion named Shadowfax who weighs 1250 kgs and is a gentle giant.

The tour includes foal petting if we have foals, which is a unique experience. The tour ends with being able to sit on one of our gentle giant horses and being led around the garden the tour takes an hour and a half.
