Sarah our instructor is fabulous and is so gentle, kind and awesome with the kids especially nervous or scared ones.

Sarah was both friendly and informative and you could clearly see that she loved all the horses. There were also some resident cats, rabbits, chickens, and a kangaroo called Bronte. The trail we rode on was... More

What a fabulous ride on a hot day down to the river. Kate kept the ride at a nice steady pace so we could all cope with the heat. The arrival at the river was a welcome sight by all. Horses and riders loved the water break. Bit of bareback in the water was a first for me. So much... More

I have been taking my 3 children ages 9,6 and 2 to Avonlea Riding Farm for several years now. We have only ever been totally 100% satisfied and well looked after. My three kids love Sarah and Becky and ALL their horses!! We drive weekly to Darlington from Gidgegannup because we are so happy with them. Xxx

We are regular Avonlea riders having started as complete novices 4 years ago. As a non- horsey person who was totally terrified I am now confident and look forward to our monthly ride. The team at Avonlea are always happy to take the trail at our pace and vary the rides each time we go. We love staying on afterwards... More

For something to do during the school holidays my wife and I decided to take our two grandsons to Avonlea Riding Farm for a Trail Ride. This is located in the hills at Darlington and not only do they have horses but also cockatoos, rabbits, kangaroos and more. The boys had never ridden horses before and are 9 and 12... More
