About The Adventure

Have you ever dreamed of being a Jillaroo and droving a herd of cattle on horseback then you simply must join us for the Embrace Cattle Drive Ride. Put your horse riding skills to the test as you work with your guide and fellow riders to move the herd of cattle through Glenworth Valley’s property on horseback.

The Cattle Droving Ride is suitable for riders of all abilities from nervous first timer and beginner riders to very experienced riders. With 200 horses for riding, horses are individually assigned to each rider to ensure that riders of all ages and abilities are matched with a horse to suit their needs. Individual instruction is given to all riders prior to departure and throughout the ride.

To top off a brilliant morning and after all your hard work on horse back you will be rewarded with a cold beer or wine and a delicious BBQ lunch overlooking the Glenworth Valley. This really is an amazing experience!
