Margaret River Ride | Horse Riding Holidays in Australia | Globetrotting

The Margaret River Ride, Australia

3-5 NightsBeginner to AdvancedFrom $2,070 AUD

Imagine salty, windswept, never-ending beach canters, swimming your horse bareback in the tranquil ocean and riding along secluded bush tracks alive with native wildlife including kangaroos, emus and cockatoos.

Margaret River: synonymous with white-sand beaches, aquamarine waters, world class vineyards, top-shelf regional fare and vino, and a temperate climate. It’s no secret why this southern region of Western Australia has been the number one tourist destination for decades.

So it’s with great excitement that Globetrotting presents to you The Margaret River Ride, in partnership with husband and wife duo, Paul Brennan and Fiona Flugge. These two beautiful souls have been making equine enthusiasts grin from ear to ear for the past ten years with their morning and afternoon rides from their Margaret River property, which also happens to be a boutique vineyard.

With help from these two locals, we’ve engineered a ride that encompasses everything we love about the iconic Margaret River region. Imagine salty, windswept, never-ending beach canters, swimming your horse bareback in the tranquil ocean and riding along secluded bush tracks and wide open, golden pastures alive with native wildlife including large mobs of kangaroos, emus and red-tailed black cockatoos.

From arrival to departure you’ll eat and drink some of the best regional food and wine that this hub has to offer. If you’ve always wanted to explore this very special part of Australia then you MUST make a beeline for The Margaret River Ride.

Expand AllCollapse All
  • Five Day Ride - Day 1

    Yippee, you’re off to Margaret River today! Whether you drive, take the bus or fly, you’ll need to arrive at your hosts’ gorgeous property between 5 and 7pm. A delicious al fresco welcome dinner will be served while you get to know your fellow guests, your hosts, Paul and Fiona, and their hardworking team. Then it’s into the canvas bell tents to get some sleep.

  • Five Day Ride - Day 2

    Waking up to a chorus of birdsong from the surrounding eucalypt forests, you’ll emerge from your teepee to refuel with good coffee and a cooked breakfast. Then you’ll meet your horse for the week and head out for a three-hour ride to Irishman’s Pool through Rapids Conservation Park. Traversing sandy-bottomed tracks, there is plenty of time to become acquainted with your trusty steed. Depending on the weather, it’s worth having a plunge in Irishman’s Pool before enjoying a picnic lunch.

    Returning to Paul and Fiona’s property, you’ll be treated to a Welcome to Country by proud Waljin woman, Mitchella (Mitch) Hutchins. After an afternoon spent with Mitch, you’ll feel spiritually connected to the bush that you’ll ride through for the next four days. With eyes wide open, you’ll appreciate the land, flora and fauna through an Indigenous person’s eyes and understand how their relationship with their surrounds is one of mutual respect. Globetrotting had some spine-tingling moments in Mitch’s company and believe it’s an incredibly special off-the-horse highlight to this colourful and sensory-overloaded itinerary.

    Dinner will be prepared by local catering legends who specialise in hearty farm-style, regional food.

  • Five Day Ride - Day 3

    This morning you’ll mount up and ride overland to the iconic Berry Farm, which is a highlight for the throngs of tourists who visit Margaret River. You’ll ride through neighbouring properties and conservation parks and gain a wonderful appreciation of the native bush that surrounds Margaret River. Your guide, Paul Brennan, is a wealth of knowledge and will keep you thoroughly entertained. This is a three-and-a-half hour ride with a morning tea break. You should arrive at the Berry Farm by 12pm, where you’ll enjoy a lovely lunch of gourmet platters. Following lunch, you’ll have some time to peruse the shop and gardens of this iconic tourist hot-spot, before heading back to base either on horseback or in the support vehicle if you’re feeling a little weary. Dinner will be enjoyed under the twinkling night sky.

  • Five Day Ride - Day 4

    After another stomach-filling breakfast, you’ll load the horses into the truck and set out for the Boranup Karri Forest. You’re welcome to follow the truck in your own vehicles, or use the included transport options should you wish. This beautiful ride through the tall timbers of the karri forest will take your breath away. Towering karri trees, some well over 60 metres in height, undulate across the valley. With sunlight streaming onto their smooth trunks, this forest is a feast for the senses – wildflowers, orchids and fungi (in season) coat the forest floor, the fresh smell of eucalyptus fills your nostrils and the sounds of native birds punctuate the silence. This will be one magical ride, globetrotters. Lunch is packed in your saddle bags today so you can take a break whenever the time seems right!

    Later, after a siesta back at base, you’re invited to mount up and try your hand at polocrosse, as tutored by Paul, who played polocrosse for Australia for a number of years. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience this fast-paced game in a safe environment on Paul and Fiona’s home field. You’ll also have the opportunity to try novelties such as barrel racing, flags and rescue racing games – reliving your Pony Club days! Then another hearty dinner awaits.

  • Five Day Ride - Day 5

    Wake up to another day in globetrotting paradise! Why not take part in an early morning yoga session to stretch out those weary muscles and prepare for another day in the saddle? After a sumptuous breakfast, you’ll be reunited with your horse, then Paul will take you cross-country, weaving along narrow bush tracks until you arrive at St Margaret’s Vineyard, one of the many vineyards that flank the Margaret River township. There will be plenty of opportunities to trot and canter along bushland tracks and through the vineyards.

    Once you catch your breath, you’ll be treated to a barbecue lunch under a grove of trees in a park-like setting with a local wine tasting. Then it’s another stunning forest ride back to Paul and Fiona’s property for dinner.

  • Five Day Ride - Day 6

    Sadly, it’s your final day at this beautiful home away from home. But the adventure ends with a BIG bang, that’s for sure. This morning you’ll set off for the deserted white sandy shores and emerald green waters of Forrest Beach. No doubt you’ll fulfill a lifelong dream when you find yourself cantering uninhibited on the beach! If you like, you can unsaddle your horse and take them into the calm, turquoise sea, and if you’re super lucky you might even spot dolphins and whales.

    For those wishing to depart straight from this beach near Busselton, the ride will wrap up at around 12 to 1pm, and you can head off after that. Alternatively, you can return to the property for a final long table lunch, which will also give you the chance to have a leisurely pack-up.

    At around 4pm, you’ll say your fond farewells to the horses and humans who have become firm friends over the last couple of days, and depart for your onward travels.

  • Three Day Ride - Day 1

    This shorter 3 day, 3 night itinerary takes in the very best highlights from the longer 5 day trek, and packs them tightly into a long weekend! So if you’re tight on time and budget, we’ve got you covered – THIS is the ride for you.

    You can arrive anytime from 5pm this afternoon for a classic Margaret River ‘Wine & Cheese’ welcome. A shared dinner will follow. If you arrive late, you can join in the delights right through to 9pm. Then it’s into the canvas bell tents to get your beauty sleep so you’re ready to swing your leg over the saddle tomorrow for a full day’s ride.

  • Three Day Ride - Day 2

    After a continental breakfast and meet and greet session with the horses, you’ll mount up and ride overland to the iconic Berry Farm, which is a highlight for the throngs of tourists who visit Margaret River. You’ll ride through neighbouring properties and conservation parks and gain a wonderful appreciation for the native bush that surrounds Margaret River. You’ll enjoy a lunch break in the Blackwood State Forest before continuing on, wandering through unsullied bushland and cantering along wide sandy tracks.

    You’re expected to arrive at the Berry Farm in time for a sumptuous afternoon tea, after which you’ll have some time to peruse the shop and gardens of this iconic tourist hot-spot, before heading back to base in the support vehicle for a shower to wash off the day’s dust.

    Drinks and dinner will be enjoyed under the twinkling night sky. If the weather is suitable, there’s also the option of participating in a stargazing session with the crew from the Bunbury Observatory. Your guides will be sure to inform you should this be a possibility this evening.

  • Three Day Ride - Day 3

    Once everyone’s bellies are full this morning, you’ll load the horses into the truck and set out for the Boranup Karri Forest. You’re welcome to follow the truck in your own vehicles, or use the included transport options should you wish. This beautiful ride through the tall timbers of the karri forest will take your breath away. Towering karri trees, some well over 60 metres in height, undulate across the valley. With sunlight streaming onto their smooth trunks, this forest is a feast for the senses – wildflowers, orchids and fungi (in season) coat the forest floor, the fresh smell of eucalypt fills your nostrils and the sounds of native birds punctuate the silence. This will be one magical ride, globetrotters. Lunch is packed in your saddle bags today so you can take a break whenever the time seems right!

    After this morning’s ride, you have the option of spending some free time exploring the Margaret River sights at your leisure, or heading back to Paul and Fiona’s property for an afternoon of fun and games on horseback, with some polocrosse coaching thrown in for good measure.

    Your final dinner (complete with cocktails) will again be enjoyed outside under the stars.

  • Three Day Ride - Day 4

    Your long weekend adventure finishes with a BANG, globetrotters – after breakfast you’re heading to the shores of the deserted white-sand Wonnerup Beach, with its emerald green waters. This pristine beach is a good 45-minute drive north, but with hard sand perfect for long stretches of cantering, and tranquil waters equally perfect for swimming with the horses, it’s definitely worth the drive.

    For those wishing to depart straight from the beach, you’ll be finished around 12 midday and can head off after that. Alternatively, you can head back to Paul and Fiona’s property for a final long table lunch, which will give you the chance to have a leisurely pack up and say farewell to your new friends and fabulous horse buddies. You’ll then depart at 2pm to head home.

What our valued Globetrotters say about The Margaret River Ride

The Margaret River Ride, WA, Australia, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Stacey West

‘I’ve been waiting years to do The Margaret River Ride, and I was not disappointed. The variety offered, which included fun activities both on and off the horse, is unique to this ride. The horses are brilliant, fit, and so well cared for by the hosts and team. There was so much opportunity to go at your own pace, both literally and mentally. I love that I could quietly read my book in a treehouse, speed around a forest on a gorgeous Stock Horse, have a few vinos and laughs at a winery, and kick some butt playing polocrosse, all in the same day. Great weather, wonderful ponies, sweet digs, and even better people. Incredible all round!’

The Margaret River Ride, Western Australia, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Angela Mendoza

‘What an incredible ride. Paul, Fiona and their family are the most warm, welcoming and friendly hosts sharing their knowledge, experience and lives with us. The guides were fun, knowledgeable, supportive and always put the horse’s welfare first. They matched me to my sassy steed perfectly. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with her. The glamping experience was magical, comfortable and cosy! The food and wine were amazing, and the extracurricular activities were a welcome surprise. The variety of riding far exceeded my expectations, with many opportunities for trotting and cantering out on the trails, as well as riding alongside kangaroos, emus, black cockatoos, and parrots. We rode through the lush green forest, long winding sandy tracks, grape vines, wildflowers, a beautiful beach (we spotted a dolphin from horseback), and the pièce de résistance, playing polocrosse for the first time! A truly unique experience with tuition from a world-class player. Thank you, team, for the most magical and memorable escape on horseback!’

The Margaret River Ride, Western Australia, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Deborah Ansell

‘This was a long-awaited ride after COVID cancellations, but it was so worth the wait; I could not have been happier. The hosts were so generous to open their beautiful home to us, I felt like I had known them my whole life. Each day was different, from the bush to the wineries, playing Polo Cross, and riding on the beach on the last day, each a wonderful experience. The horses were all lovely and willing; I really enjoyed the riding, and being able to swim the horses on the most beautiful beach was just magical. I met some lovely people and felt very comfortable as a single rider. Coming home to the homestead at the end of the day was lovely and welcoming; it’s a fantastic, relaxing place with heaps of character and charm. I felt very spoilt being served lovely meals at the end of each day and sitting around the table with our hosts, chatting and telling stories. We had a visit from an aboriginal local who had a wealth of knowledge and was very interesting. We even got to make some jewellery to take home. I would highly recommend this ride to anyone; you would be hard-pressed not to enjoy yourself and have a magical experience. I would love to do it all again!’

The Margaret River Ride, WA, Australia, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Kim Davis

‘The Margaret River Ride is a beautiful experience, with such fantastic and caring hosts. Everything from the amazing horses to the gorgeous scenery and delicious food was on point! This was my second Globetrotting ride, and I loved every minute of it. Our guides were all lovely and knowledgeable. Our head guide was brilliant, and it was so much fun to ride with! Her understanding of each horse and rider was spot on. The Polo Cross was so much fun, and a nice Sav Blanc afterwards paired perfectly with the hot W.A. afternoon! Every detail has been thought of to make this a great ride!’

The Margaret River Ride, Western Australia, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Peggy Quill

‘I absolutely loved my experience on the Margaret River Ride. The horses were exceptional; well-bred and uniformly great. I felt extremely fortunate to ride such lovely horses. The guides were superb – they worked together seamlessly, and were caring and informative. The accommodation was wonderful, along with the food and service. I had a great time getting to know the other riders, the support crew and owners. Riding on the beach was the highlight of the trip for me, it was simply amazing! Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and I made new friendships while exploring the beautiful part of Western Australia.’

The Margaret River Ride, WA, Australia, Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Jenna Kassier

‘The Margaret River ride was an incredible experience that I would highly recommend to everyone. Paul and Fiona, our hosts, were gracious and always made sure we had what we needed. Our trail leader, Emma, was amazing. She was knowledgeable, approachable, and knew every horse so well. Emma had great tips on what works well with each horse. And of course, the horses themselves were incredible. My horse, Molly, was amazing – responsive and happy to go along with anything. The accommodation was homely, and the beds were so comfortable – exactly what we needed after a long day. It all went by too quickly, and I already can’t wait to book another globetrotting ride!’

The Margaret River Ride, Western Australia, Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Molly Hoffman-Bricker

‘The Margaret River ride was my first Globetrotting experience and it could not have been more perfect! My horse, Richie, was a good match for me. We had varied bush rides, with lots of cantering throughout. The polocrosse was a real standout, and I had so much fun that I instantly forgot about being a little saddle-sore. The food was delicious, and I was left stuffed throughout the weekend. Our hosts, Paul and Fiona, were lovely to spend time with, and they sat with us at the dinner table every night. Even though it was my first Globetrotting ride, I am sure it won’t be my last.’

The Margaret River Ride, WA, Australia, Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Alison Venn

‘The Margaret River Ride is a magical 5-day itinerary, with a great variety of activities, beautiful horses, stunning scenery, knowledgeable guides, and delicious food. During my stay, I rode a sweet mare named Emily who knew her job well, and I felt extremely safe throughout the ride. The ride to the vineyard for lunch, the day 4 forest ride, and the beach ride and swim were the highlights of my trip. Even though I’m not good at ball games, I enjoyed playing polo crosse. 10 out of 10!’

The Margaret River Ride, Western Australia - Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Ali Lamond

‘I have loved all my Globetrotting rides, but this one stands out the most. All five days in the saddle were fantastic. My horse Delilah was lovely and our guide Paul was very intuitive in matching horses to riders. The guides were outstanding: they loved their work and were very knowledgeable. The fast canter home after lunch in the vineyard and riding through grapevines was a real highlight. A wonderful family-run outfit that I would definitely recommend.’
