My partner had her heart set on a ride. When she called the manager abused her for asking for directions then hung up on her. She went despite this enjoyed the ride but heard this same lady abuse another customer then winge about them once they had left.

Poor form

The staff were lovely but shouted at by manager who spoke rudely to.many members of my group, i was snapped at for my stirrups not being done correctly. We had to get our own helmets and then we were continuously shouted at by this horrible manager. I would not recommend as that alone totally ruined our experience. Go somewhere else!!

My friend and I went for a ride at Hanmer Horses in mid January, the staff were great, the horses are very friendly and the trek was absolutely stunning, but the manager was horrible. She shouted at her staff in front of us and then on top of that shouted at us. It made us feel very uncomfortable. It definitely doesn't seem like a nice working environment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trek with Clair. She was a lovely, friendly girl who made it very special. The horses were well-behaved and not at all scary and the scenery from the top of the hill was breath-taking.
