When a love for horses, a passion for business and an exciting opportunity combine, the Horseback story starts…
Nestled in the picturesque, undulating hills of Main Ridge is the award-winning Horseback Mornington Peninsula, a well established equestrian facility operated by owner and founder, Alisha Griffiths.
Horseback, 85km south east of Melbourne, has been built with quality and safety as the key priorities. Quality being, all designs and builds have been structured to ensure their guests can experience one of Australia’s premier equestrian facilities and the horses are homed in the best possible environment. The level of safety in which Horseback provides has allowed them to be one of only two accredited facilities with Horse Safety Australia.
The early days saw Horseback operate their highly popular Horseback Winery Tours, where visitors could escape from their world to travel into the spectacular vineyard region of Red Hill and Main Ridge, by Horseback.
Horse riding has since become even more popular, which prompted Horseback to add new tours to the week. Now, Horseback offer a two hour, three hour and an experienced tour for their visitors every day except for Tuesday.
Visitors from not even 5km away to over 12,000km’s away make sure to explore the Mornington Peninsula on Horseback.
All Horseback horses are kept on the property and are adored by all. Their ongoing care, training and management is undertaken by a professional and loving team of staff. Every Tuesday is their relaxation day. A day when they can either rest or enjoy an afternoon of pampering at our day spa after a busy week meeting new riders.
Riders are always quick to form a strong bond with their trusty steed. The team of tour staff are equally as trusting and trained. For those who haven’t ridden before, you will be guided confidently. For those who have ridden before, you will be excited by what’s on offer.
In 2016, Horseback continues to evolve. Horseback Winery Tours, Horse Education, Children’s Holiday Programs, Red Hill Dressage and the soon to be launched, Horse Park all fall under the Horseback brand.
With a strong demand from both the local and international markets, Horseback will further develop and nurture their products to ensure the needs of their guests are being met.
Sit back, relax and enjoy your ride with Horseback…
