Horse? The great outdoors? Family fun? Why...you must be at Otford Farm Trail Rides!
The sweet Otford Farm has been welcoming absolute beginners right up to riding experts since all the way back to the 1960s - that's a lot of family fun that's been had!
The fun is great for those who want to get out into nature and enjoy a relaxing family day out with some beautiful animals. The farm offers a range of horse riding lessons, riding trails and other family getaway activities with over 30 friendly, trained mounts to choose from, plus younger ones enjoy meeting the farm animals. With goats, ducks, and other cute creatures you might want to take your camera!
The somewhat spectacular local scenery includes waterfalls and rainforests, so it's far from just a pony ride! You're able to select a more challenging approach if your kids are older or more experienced, so there is always something for everyone.
With younger ones Otford Farm offer the Rainforest Ride which is only one hour long and suitable for all levels of ability.
If you really do have animals lovers in the family, then the Kids' Camps are what you might be looking for! They are great for 8 to 16 year olds where they get to learn some new skills, muck in with the daily chores and take active care of the animals. They have bunkhouse options is you want to stay too!
Horse riding and pony rides are a great way to spend some time together as a family, and you're learning a new skill (or improving one you already have) so let's get out and enjoy nature - there is plenty of it in Australia that's worth exploring!
