Horse Riding like no other Enjoy country life on the coast. Is there anywhere else that you can experience the horse rides like Susan River Homestead offers? Walk, trot or canter through the property for 2 1/2 hours, enjoy refreshments at the picnic area on the banks of the lazy Susan River. If you are an experienced rider or purely a beginner, the resort has a dependable horse for you. Treat yourself and family to an adventure you will always remember. Family home of World Renowned Horseman & Entertainer Guy McLean, where he started to hone his skills.
