I took my 8-year-old daughter on a Parent-Child weekend at Fordsdale. We both had a brilliant time. Sue is a lovely host and made us feel so welcome, she has a lovely way of getting everyone talking with each other. The horseriding was brilliant and my daughter loved her horse. I also really appreciated the unexpected experiences, like my daughter learning how to make conversation at the dinner table with a group of people she didn't know. Thanks for the wonderful weekend Sue!

Everything about the weekend was wonderful. Sue was very warm and welcoming. We did a full day's Horse Riding on Saturday up and down Hills all over the Fordsdale Property. The setting is very idyllic. You also get a warm welcome from Tip, Sue's canine companion. Then a couple of hours Riding on Sunday. Loved it.

I took my 19 year old daughter for a three day Horse Riding Holiday at Fordsdale. We went riding mornings and late afternoons (It is the peak of summer at the moment so too hot to ride in the middle of the day). Sue taught my daughter to trot and we were then able to trot on parts of our rides. We really enjoyed getting to know some of the horses and their unique personalities. There are so many trails on the 1000 acre property, so we explored somewhere new each day. The horses are healthy and very well cared for. They have lots of space to wander around freely (We went to find them in the 4WD before each ride). We stayed in the guest house and enjoyed Sue's excellent meals. Sue could not have done more to make our three days everything I had hoped they would be! I hope to return!

Beautiful views, great camping areas either with a large group or 2 people. Horse riding was fantastic and great trail rides to see the country side. Friendly horses and friendly owners, Important to have a 4wd if you are wanting to wake up to a good view if you are camping.

I didn't just have a great time at Fordsdale, I had an amazing time. A time that filled my soul and made my heart sing. If this sounds a bit too over the top for you, you haven't ridden on a horse through beautiful landscape, accompanied by a guide, whose love for horses and the environment shines through everything she does. You haven't basked in meditative silence enhanced by the sounds of nature or enjoyed stimulating conversations while trusting that your horse finds the safest path up and down the hills. Thank you so much, Sue and team. You have helped me create unforgettable memories. I will be back to make more.

I stayed at fordsdale horseback adventures for five days on a jackroo experience. This involved living and working alongside fordsdale lovely owner Sue. I went to fordsdale at the end of my six weeks travel around Australia, as an experienced rider I wanted to experience the Australian culture of riding. Sue and Lindsey had great knowledge and experience. They make you feel very welcome and at home, plus Tip the dog is just the best. Fordsdale has the most amazing, stunning landscape that is perfect for riders of all abilities. The main thing I can say about fordsdale is the kind, honest nature of all its horses. I haven't worked with Arabs in a long time and fordsdale reminded me that the bred are beautiful, responsive, intelligent and have scope to be great all rounders for competitions. I had a great time so from a riders point of view fordsdale will offer you a great holiday or day out.

We had an absolute ball this morning on our ride, the horses were fantastic, the views spectacular and Sue was very kind and patient with us. My partner had never ridden a horse and spent the whole way home talking about how next time we go back we should do more! He was very happy with how it went and it made me extremely happy to see that! Will definitely come back again and recommend! Thanks again Sue!
