Family owned and operated
Darkes Forest Riding Ranch and Boarding stables 30 min South of Sydney, 30 min north of Wollongong was established in 1971.
For over 40 years our family owned and operated horse riding ranch, set in native bushland is a great place to enjoy a horse ride or a horse riding lesson.
We have experienced ride leaders and instructors that are keen to share their love of horses with people of all ages and experience levels.
There are activities and classes designed especially for children. We also offer lessons for beginners and advanced riders of all ages. We cater for both horse ride and pony ride birthday parties.
We have a kiosk on site, so stay for lunch or have a coffee and read the paper.
We’re open 7days a week, all year round [except Christmas Day] Come and ride with us today.
