Horse riding in Centennial Park, Sydney

Children who love horses will be delighted in Sydney. For the under-fives, led pony rides are available at most horseriding schools. Older kids, whether beginners or more experienced, can have a lesson, trail ride and even a birthday party at Sydney's Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre or an hour from Sydney at a family venue such as Valley View Park at Grose Vale, in the Hawkesbury. You can also stay at Valley View in a log cabin.

Pony camps are available during school holidays, or enjoy a family day out at the Golden Ridge Animal Farm, where kids can have a pony ride, feed lambs and goats, and even milk a cow.
