Horse riding in Centennial Park, Sydney

Children who love horses will be delighted in Sydney. For the under-fives, led pony rides are available at most horseriding schools. Older kids, whether beginners or more experienced, can have a lesson, trail ride and even a birthday party at Sydney's Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre or an hour from Sydney at a family venue such as Valley View Park at Grose Vale, in the Hawkesbury. You can also stay at Valley View in a log cabin.

Pony camps are available during school holidays, or enjoy a family day out at the Golden Ridge Animal Farm, where kids can have a pony ride, feed lambs and goats, and even milk a cow.

Glenworth Valley, about an hour north of the city on the Central Coast has more than 1,200 acres of scenic beauty to discover, and more horseriding adventures await you in other splendid locations in greater NSW.
