You’re in for a memorable day on a three-hour ride in the saddle!
Located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula’s food and wine regions, we’ll take you to famous neighbouring wineries, restaurants and attractions such as Red Hill Estate, Mantons Creek, T’Gallant, Green Olive at Red Hill, Mock Red Hill and the Red Hill Brewery.
If you’ve never ridden before, an accomplished guide and a gentle, well-trained horse will take care of you. If you’re an experienced rider, you’re in for a memorable experience in the saddle.
Along the ride, each winery stop is about 25-30mins, at which time you will have an opportunity to taste and purchase the wines of your choice. Should you purchase any wine at any of the stops, we pick this up for you and have it waiting for you back at our farm on your return.
We’re only an easy 1 hour drive from Melbourne.

The staff were wonderful and the tour was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour.
Great experience even though it was raining most of the time. Sore back, but it was all worth it. Great team, great service, great time! Thank you!
Great day. Fantastic was so excited
Amazing day so relaxed loved every minute of the adventure
Loved it! Would recommend to all.
The horseback winery tour was amazing. The young guides were very helpful, scenery and setting was relaxing and wineries visited were perfect. "Magnum" - my old steed was a delight also.
Thank-you adrenaline, everything lived up to our expectation. The crew at horse back winery were professional friendly and fun :)
This was a great experience. The horses were the best we have experienced and the staff were fantastic. The wineries we went to were excellent and we really enjoyed the combination of horses and wine. We would highly recommend this to anyone.
A very well run horse riding school with engaged staff and excellent trail riding horses.
You'll typically visit 2 of the following wineries:
We’ll walk through the welcoming courtyard, past kitchen gardens which grow vegetables and herbs for the kitchen, and into the spacious cellar door. You’ll be able to taste about six wines here, and it’s usually the sparkling Ophelia, a Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, the famous Holystone Rose, a Pinot Noir and perhaps a Shiraz, with a Moscato to finish. In winter, our riders are always drawn to the big open fire.
Mantons Creek is a beautiful little winery, snuggled into a valley with a rose garden and vines in front, and huge trees protecting the vineyards. The 19-acre property was previously an orchard, herb farm and horse stud before it was developed as a vineyard in the 1990’s, producing the highest quality maritime, cool climate wines made entirely from estate grown Mornington Peninsula fruit.
Green Olive at Red Hill
Green Olive at Red Hill is a vibrant, busy estate, with a vineyard, vegetable gardens, olive grove and a farm shop that’s usually filled with delicious aromas of bread from the woodfired oven. It really is like a little working farm, as they raise sheep, chooks and fish, and turn produce from local farmers into the Green Olive own range of food. It’s a real ‘farm to fork’ property.
MOCK Red Hill
In 1895, the Mock family planted their first orchard just outside Melbourne. Four generations later, they continue to grow apples in the picturesque hinterland of Red Hill. The Mock family became pioneers within the Bio-Dynamic movement in Australia when their orchard was first certified in 1974. Today the family continues to nurture and nourish the same certified orchard, creating a unique range of Bio-Dynamic products.
Prince Hollow Estate
Prince Hollow Estate is very unique site that has shown to produce the grapes of utmost power and intensity. A relatively cool and dry microclimate exists through a combination of a West facing aspect and a drying wind tunnel effect of the Main Ridge Valley. Under these conditions the vines struggle and fight to produce small quantities of incredibly powerful fruit. Big flavour, big tannins and power rare to the Mornington Peninsula.
