It's not something I do often, and by often I mean more than once every five years or so - but horse riding is such a fun way to get out and in nature for a bit. There's a surprising number of places you can do this in and around Sydney. What are places you know of or have tried that offer horse riding?

I went horse riding once at Centennial Park and it was really nice! I had only ridden once before and the instructors were really great. The Park was a calm and picturesque place to ride, I definitely recommend it.
Great question Kerri :) I agree, horse riding in Sydney is therapeutic. I went on a trail ride in Allambie Heights when I first moved to Sydney just over a year ago, and for the life of me I cannot remember the name. Otherwise I get away and do it in Mittagong and the Central Coast - not far from Sydney anyway. We're so fortunate :)
It took me a while to remember the name of where I'd been horse riding, but it was Valley View Park Horse Riding in Richmond. A lovely surround of bush, with dirt tracks and lakes to go past, it was a really fun day out. I took a relative of mine who was visiting from the UK, as he wanted to see some true Australian bushland. This was a great way of doing it, although we were assigned a teenage guide who was quite sulky and spent the entire time texting on her mobile.

There are a lot of great places out past The Hills that are great for horse riding. there are lots of businesses through Dural and Arcadia.
The Hunter Valley is also a great place to go horse riding for the lovely scenic views and you can get lovely wine and cheese picnics to take along. This would be a good idea for a weekend trip away as it is about a two hour drive from Sydney (but well worth it).

I have only ever been horse riding once, but it was a marvellous experience. I visited Darkes Forest Riding Ranch near Wollongong and found the place to be not only beautiful, but very effectively run.
