Coast meets Country farmstays & tours
The Sandy Bay Property has been developed into Quality Boutique horse experiences & Farmstays. A fresh water stream runs up the valley which the trails follow, steeper hills and tracks take you up into stunning views of Sandy Bay and yonder. The very large neighbouring coastal farm is also accessed for our rides for the more capable riders.
Our horses are trail riding horses and it is all about kicking back, relaxing and watching the view. These are not fast paced horse rides, however options for the experienced are available. Coaching can be made available from Kiley on request.
Kiley started riding her own horse regularly very young, jumping, pony club, eventing & trail. Right from the beginning she had a natural ability to connect with horses, as observed from her teachers. Her sensitivity easily enabling communication pathways between her and the horse. By running a whole herd of horses at Sandy Bay horses & farmstays Kiley discovered massive advantages within her training journey, "These horses are living as a herd, I integrate into their social system, always working on improving communication through ground training, body work and ridden work, developing learned responses and connections through lightness. She has spent many years working with horses and developing farmstays and equine experiences at sandy bay.
