Chesleigh’s horse riding for young people is fantastic, making it the perfect horse riding destination for your family. We have been perfecting this activity for over 40 years and we are a favorite riding venue Australia wide. Horse riding families choose us.
Our horses are well schooled, easy going and happy. Your leaders are horse experts and will take the time to teach your child the skills so that they can develop their riding.
Whatever stage your riding is at, you are guaranteed to have a great time on horseback at Chesleigh. So for complete beginners, those who have had lessons or for experienced riders alike, there will be a horse and a riding group to suit you.
We have led pony rides through the bush right through to our longer or more adventurous horse rides. Our riding trails are diverse, mountain & valley trails, river rides, old gold town ride, Cobb & Co coach road ride - exciting and beautiful.
Panning for gold on your family holiday will be a highlight. Mike takes excursions down to our own creeks where everybody can dig, fossick and pan for gold. There is gold to be found and there is an art to it, which Mike will demonstrate and help with. Kids become hooked on gold panning and won't want to leave the creek beds once they have been shown how it's done. Not only is gold panning at Chesleigh fun, but it is rich with history and geology too.
The absolute winning advantage of a holiday at Chesleigh is the diversity of our beautiful property.
We have 3000 acres of forested hills, secret valleys, pristine creeks with waterfalls, Cobb & Co coach trails, mountain bike trails, gold boom relics, lookouts, wild river frontage, caves and diverse wildlife .
Alone or with your group or guided, you won’t forget seeing wild kangaroos and wallabies, amazing and colourful birdlife on your trip to the caves or one of the magical lookouts.
