Our friendly staff, beautiful horses and comfortable carriages make a great relaxing day out with family and friends. Children are also welcome on our tours so come and relax with us today in the Hunter Valley.

Our horse-drawn carriages travel at an easy pace and take you on an exploration of Hunter Valley Wine Country that will tantalise your senses. Our tours allow time at each venue to savour the rich and delicate flavours of local wine and produce including cheese, olives and so much more.

We offer a complimentary return transfer from your local accommodation so you can relax from the start of the day to the end.

Hunter Valley Horses also offers horse riding for all levels - we have a horse to suit
everyone. Our trail rides will take you through bushland and local vineyards with amazing views to the Broken Back Ranges. We are located on the grounds of The Hunter Resort, at 917 Hermitage Road Pokolbin. Turn into The Hunter Resort and follow the signs to the Adventure Centre.

We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Scott Googe

Owner

I worked on a remote Queensland Cattle Station as a teenager for a few years after which I worked as a Stallion Handler. I started Hunter Valley Horses about 13 years ago after working for and purchasing other local carriage tour companies. I met my beautiful partner-in-crime Narin in 2015 and we now run the company together.

Completed my Degree in Law and Administration, had three children (all grown up now) and started two successful businesses prior to this. I rode horses only as a child and have been thrust back into it after meeting Scott and working at HVH. I enjoy meeting our customers, taking interesting photos and promoting HVH through our exciting social media channels.

I have been riding since I was 12 and working for HVH for nearly three years. I love everything about this job from running the horses in, saddling them up and going for a good gallop through the bush. I absolutely love the opportunity of meeting new people, learning about new cultures and new languages and nothing beats seeing a warm big smile on a customer’s face!
